About Under the Moons of Mars:
Science fiction fans, rejoice: the classic character John Carter of Mars, created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, is back! In time for the 100th anniversary of the publication of A Princess of Mars, this brand new anthology, Under the Moons of Mars, takes a beloved character into brand-new territory with a collection of stories that fans will eagerly devour. With a foreword by celebrated fantasy writer Tamora Pierce and introduction and header notes by John Joseph Adams, the collection includes stories by Joe R. Lansdale, Jonathan Maberry, Peter S. Beagle, Robin Wasserman, Garth Nix, and many more.
Building on the mythology created by Burroughs, these tales explore questions and plots that further the lives of original characters such as John Carter's mortal enemy, Sarkoja. In Under the Moons of Mars, the fantastic world of Barsoom and the characters inhabiting it are brought to life by today's freshest science fiction voices and vivid illustrations that give the book a dose of comic book visual energy while maintaining a focus on the stories themselves. After reading, you'll be hungry for more John Carter adventures!
