A Princess Of Mars (1912) is arguably the most influential science fiction novel of the twentieth century. It was the first novel from the man who would create Tarzan of the Apes, and most science fiction novelists and many scientists (notably, Carl Sagan) credit it and Burroughs's gigantic later output for their fascination with space. The novel exudes tremendous energy, even in this abridgment. Winiarski's voice is mature, his characters well distinguished, his pacing more contemplative, in keeping with the narrative tone. As Burroughs's books pass out of copyright, we can expect to see a flood of his titles in audio format. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
