Carter of the Red Planet

Enlisting the services of the Green Men of Thark, John Carter and his formidable allies battle their way into the city of Zodanga and rescue the imprisoned Princess of Helium in this concluding installment of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ great story of weird adventure on the planet Mars. “Carter of the Red Planet” is the most extraordinary work of imaginative fiction yet to come from the pen of the man who will be remembered as the author of “Tarzan of the Apes.”
