The Gods of Mars is a science fantasy novel by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs and the second of Burroughs' Barsoom series. It features the characters of John Carter and Carter's wife Dejah Thoris. It was first published in The All-Story as a five-part serial in the issues for January-May 1913. It was later published as a complete novel by A. C. McClurg in September, 1918 and in many editions subsequently.As usual for him, Burroughs begins with a frame story that explains how he (Burroughs) came into possession of the text. At the end of the first book, A Princess of Mars, John Carter was unwillingly transported back to Earth. The story proper begins with his arrival back on Barsoom (Mars) after a ten-year separation with Dejah Thoris, their unborn child, and the Red Martian people of the nation of Helium, whom he has adopted as his own. Unfortunately, Carter materializes in the one place on Barsoom from which nobody is allowed to depart: the Valley Dor, which is the Barsoomian afterlife.After John Carter's arrival, a boat of Green Martians on the River Iss are ambushed by the previously unknown Plant Men. The lone survivor is his friend Tars Tarkas, the Jeddak of Thark, who has taken the pilgrimage to the Valley Dor to find Carter. Having saved their own lives, Carter and Tars Tarkas discover that the Therns, a white-skinned race of self-proclaimed gods, have for eons deceived the Barsoomians elsewhere with the lie that the pilgrimage to the Valley Dor is a journey to paradise. Most arrivals are killed by the beasts who dwell here, and the survivors enslaved or eaten by Therns.

A Princess of Mars (1912) by Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of the most over-the-top novels ever written. Inspired by pulp and in turn inspiring pulp to this day, its heroic absurdity-ahem, sentimentality possesses a verve for storytelling that plumbs the depths of exaggerated and imaginative fiction like few other period works of such length. And once the train starts rolling, it's tough to stop it. The Gods of Mars (1914), sequel to A Princess of Mars, sets the dial to twelve for John Carter's wild return to Barsoom.Transported back to Earth amidst an oxygen crisis at the end of A Princess of Mars, John Carter never learned whether the woman he loved, Dejah Thoris, or the son they were waiting to hatch (hatch!!!) suffocated or not. Praying to the sky above his New York home one night that he might return to know their fate, at the outset of The Gods of Mars John Carter once again finds his corporeal-self transported away from Earth. Arriving in an unfamiliar land, he's unsure whether he's on Barsoom or not. Strange plant men assaulting him in an exotic landscape that is nothing like his memories of the red planet, it isn't until he meets up with his old friend Tars Tarkas that the truth slowly unfolds: he has arrived in Dor, the land of the dead. All manner of exotic adventure unraveling, Carter must fight through peril and danger to escape a land no Barsoomiam has ever escaped from to learn what has befallen his beloved Dejah Thoris and son in the ten years since he last set foot on Mars

Burroughs' second book in the classic Barsoom series, The Gods of Mars is a scientific fiction novel following the adventures of John Carter as he returns to Mars after a ten year hiatus in the hope of being reunited with his wife, child and the Red Martian people. First published as a five-part serial in a pulp magazine in the course of 1913, the novel was later published as a whole in 1918. A tale of audacity, honor, optimism, and perseverance, Burroughs successfully builds on to the previous book allowing a broader view of the Red Planet.The novel begins as John Carter returns to Barsoom after his involuntary absence of ten years and finds himself in the Valley Dor, or the Barsoomian afterlife from which no one is permitted to leave. However, the Valley Dor is anything but a spiritual haven and instead Carter discovers that it is a ruse, forged by the Therns, a race of self-proclaimed gods. For eons they have deceived Barsoomians into believing that the pilgrimage to the Valley Dor is a journey to paradise, although in reality most visitors are either killed or enslaved by the Therns. Accompanied by friend Tars Tarkas, the pair tries to escape from the place, and are aided by the confusion caused by an attack by the Black Pirates of Barsoom upon the Therns. Taking advantage of the present mayhem, Carter and his accomplices are able to hijack a Black Pirate flier, killing most of the Pirates in the process and saving a Thern captive. Carter learns that the Black Pirates or the "First Born", also see themselves as gods therefore clarifying their hatred for the Therns

While hiding in a cave in the Arizona desert, John Carter apparently dies, only to reawaken on Mars where he is re-embodied in a body identical to his old one on Earth. Thus begins John Carter's many adventures on Mars, one of the greatest adventure fantasies of all-time. In an interesting twist, Burroughs cast himself as John Carter's nephew, entrusted with Carter's manuscripts relating his many Martian tales. Moving back and forth between earth and Mars via astral projection, John Carter fights alongside six-armed green Martians, a woos a Martian princess to become Prince of Helium, fights plant men and pirates, leads revolts and mutinies, explores the red planet from the equator to the poles, fights against and befriends several Martian races, uncovers fantastic creatures, explores lost civilizations, rises to become the Warlord of Mars along with many other exploits. Other Martian adventures follow in subsequent Barsoom books, each as rich and imaginative as the last, thrilling with telepathic warriors, flying ships, rescued princesses, games of strategy, the storied deeds of John Carter's progeny on Mars, the feats of Ulysses Paxton, an Earthman like Carter who is also sent to Mars by astral projection, and the escapades of other Martian heroes. This rich collection includes the following seven Barsoom books: A Princess of Mars (1912) The Gods of Mars (1913) The Warlord of Mars (1914) Thuvia, Maid of Mars (1916) The Chessmen of Mars (1922) The Master Mind of Mars (1927) A Fighting Man of Mars (1930) Burrough's Mars is imagined as a dying planet with a harsh desert environment packed with ancient races and civilizations, hostile creatures, complex relationships, and deep mysteries. Filled with a clever blend of fantasy, romance, action, science fiction, and western influences, Barsoom is a world as rich in ideas as adventurous stories. This fantasized vision of Mars was based on the work of the astronomer Percival Lowell, whose ideas were widely popularized in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but which Burroughs made uniquely his own. One of the original space operas, the incomparable Barsoom series inspired a number of well-known 20th-century science fiction writers including Jack Vance, Alan Moore, Ray Bradbury, Philip José Farmer, Arthur C. Clarke, Dan Simmons, Robert A. Heinlein, Stephen King, John Norman, and others. John Carter of Mars was a major influence on other science fiction and fantasy tales and characters through the 20th century including Flash Gordon, Superman, Buck Rogers, Dune, Warp!, Adam Strange, Den, George Lucas' Star Wars (and the Jedi), James Cameron's Avatar, and many others. The Barsoom series was also inspirational for many scientists in the fields of space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life, including Carl Sagan. Burrough's Barsoom continues to inspire and delight to this day. This illustrated edition includes many images from the original books and serials.

When John Carter goes to sleep in a mysterious cave in the Arizona dessert, he wakes up on the planet Mars. There he meets the fifteen foot tall, four armed, green men of mars, with horse-like dragons, and watch dogs like oversized frogs with ten legs. His adventures continue as he battles great white apes, fights plant men, defies the Goddess of Death, and braves the frozen wastes of Polar Mars. In other adventures, the Prince of Helium encounters a race of telepathic warriors, the Princess of Helium confronts the headless men of Mars, Captain Ulysses Paxton learns the secret of human immortality, and Tan Hadron's idealized notion of love is tested as he fights off gigantic spiders and cannibals. Edgar Rice Burroughs vision of Mars was loosely inspired by astronomical speculation of the time, especially that of Percival Lowell, who saw the red planet as a formerly Earth-like world now becoming less hospitable to life due to its advanced age. Burroughs predicted the invention of homing devices, radar, sonar, autopilot, collision detection, television, teletype, genetic cloning, living organ transplants, antigravity propulsion, and many other concepts that were well ahead of his time. The books in the Barsoom series were an early inspiration to many, including science fiction authors Robert A. Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke and Ray Bradbury, they influenced renowned scientist Carl Sagan in his quest for extraterrestrial life, and were instrumental in the making of James Cameron's Avatar, and George Lucas' Star Wars. This edition includes 46 illustrations.
