A Fighting Man of Mars

Here's as exciting a novel as Edgar Rice Burroughs, creator of Tarzan of the Apes, ever wrote. It's a novel about Barsoom, the Red Planet, whose Warlord, the famous John Carter, is aroused when a strange new weapon attacks his airfleet and a lovely lady disappears.

Hadron of Hastor, one of Carter's finest warriors, takes to the field to avenge Helium and locate the hidden foe. His adventures among the little known ancient cities of Mars, his comradeship with the brave warrior-woman Tavia, and their struggle together against the hordes of a cunning monarch, make A Fighting Man of Mars a breathtaking science-fiction classic.

Interior text

An unseen foe strikes against John Carter

Under the double moons of Barsoom, an invisible flier sped to the mysterious city of Jahar where Sanoma Tora, the kidnapped princess of Helium had been taken. Hadron of Hastor was at the controls, hatching a rescue plan that required unusual daring and great ingenuity. For invisibility alone was not a great enough weapon against "The Death."

And should Hadron succeed, what fate would await him at the hands of the madman whose very genius had created the means of that rescue?

A Fighting Man of Mars is the exciting story of Martian adventure as transmitted by Ulysses Paxton on Mars to Edgar Rice Burroughs in Tarzana, by means of Pellucidar's Gridley Wave.
