A Princess of Mars

Edgar Rice Burroughs


A Princess of Mars


Part science fiction, part western, and part romantic adventure, A Princess of Mars follows John Carter, a Civil War veteran who mysteriously finds himself transported to the dying planet Mars. Here Carter acquires a set of superhuman abilities and soon earns the respect of a tribe of giant green Martians called Tharks. When the Tharks capture the princess of the red Martians, Carter falls in love. He sets out on a dangerous quest to save both Princess Dejah and the rest of the red planet.

A Princess of Mars, and its extraordinary hero, John Carter, influenced countless 20th century science fiction writers who were inspired by Burrough’s classic epic adventure. The novel was recently adapted into film by Disney as John Carter.

A Princess of Mars is a part of Momentum’s Classic Science Fiction series.
