Deep in the Martian drylands, a band of mercenaries plots revolution. Enter Eric John Stark, outlaw; in wind-swept ruins he will find unlikely romance, and an ancient, undying secret…
The second in Stirling’s Lords of Creation series brings us to Mars, in the proper tradition of Burroughs, Bradbury, and Brackett. This one was even better than The Sky People.
Venture back, long ago, to the far-away world… of Venus. An amazing pastiche-slash-homage to the likes of Burroughs, done with modern sensibilities and writing style.
Returning to John Carter of Mars. The continuation and conclusion of the previous novel: more intrigues with the White and Black Martians, a planet to win and a princess to save.
John Carter returns, thanks to cliffhangers and popularity. Once again, he has to save his beloved Dejah Thoris, along with the rest of Mars, and must overcome many foes to do so.
The grandfather of epic planetary romances and sword-and-planet; Virginian John Carter appears on Mars, where he makes war and peace, falls in love, and saves the day.
