Under The Moons of Mars

Under The Moons of Mars edited by John Joseph Adams

This book contains a collection of 14 short stories by a variety of authors. All stories are based upon Edgar Rice Burrough’s Mars series. Each story looks at Barsoom (mars) + John Carter (principal character) a little differently. Some introduce new situations to Carter; some are spin-offs with his offspring, etc. I did not find this book to be a very satisfactory read. None of the writers equaled Burrough’s wild imagination and most portrayed the Burrough’s hero, Carter, in a negative light.
