A year before Tarzan made his debut in a 1912 issue of ALL-STORY MAGAZINE, his creator penned this novel about a former Confederate captain mysteriously transported to the Martian kingdom of Barsoom, where he battles tall four-armed creatures in order to rescue Princess Deja Thoris. The Mars series, which ran for 11 novels, was eclipsed by the Tarzan novels but has remained popular among adventure and science fiction devotees. This reading by Dennis McKee comes across as flat and dreary, undermining the heroic, swashbuckling spirit of the novel. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
