Born in 1995, Jeremy Szal is a Writers of the Future finalist and the author of more than forty publications. His fiction has appeared (or is forthcoming) in venues such as Nature, Abyss & Apex, Perihelion magazine, and his nonfiction has appeared multiple times in Strange Horizons, Grimdark Magazine, and Fantasy Scroll.

Burroughs, and the rest of the pulp writers produced some really great stuff (RE Howard’s Kull has always been my favorite,) and if they’re period pieces today, that just makes them all the more fun to read. The author of this review is 19 years old? Seriously? I’m impressed.

Carter is transported, almost instantaneously to the planet Mars via mysterious means. Upon finding himself on Mars he discovers that he now possesses superhuman strength and agility; a result of lower gravity of and lower atmospheric pressure of Mars, or Barsoom as it is known by its inhabitants. Not too long after his sudden and inexplicable arrival upon Mars when he is discovered by a party of Tharks, the native inhabitants of the planet. The Tharks are green-skinned, six-limbed, and tusked humanoids that live in loose tribal units. They are also belligerent race that value raw, physical strength and martial prowess above all else.

His unnatural Terran strength, his military training, and experience pay off greatly as he manages to defend himself against his would-be captors. Upon seeing his skill with a blade, his amazing strength, and utter fearlessness the Tharks take his as a kindred spirit, earning both the respect and friendship of the Thark Chieftain, Tars Tarkas . He rises to a position of prominence within the tribe in due time, honoring him by giving him a new Barsoomian name, Dotar Sojat, a cognate name formed from the combination of the names of two prominent warriors that he had defeated in single combat.

The Tharks are a society of raiders and they later capture the Princess of the City-State of Helium, the beautiful Dejah Thoris . Dejah belongs to the Red Martian race, a species of Martian more closely resembling human beings save for a deeply tanned, nearly brick-colored skin hue, hence their common name. The red Martians reside in widely spaced grid of independent city-states. They also hold influence over the few remaining canals upon the bone-dry Martian surface where unsurprisingly most of the farming is done.

The Barsoom series inspired a number of well-known 20th-century science fiction writers, including Jack Vance , Ray Bradbury , Arthur C. Clarke , Robert A. Heinlein , and John Norman . The series was also inspirational for many scientists in the fields of space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life, including Carl Sagan , who read A Princess of Mars when he was a child.

The Tharks subsequently capture Dejah Thoris , Princess of Helium, a member of the humanoid red Martian race. The red Martians inhabit a loose network of city-states and control the desert planet's canals , along which its agriculture is concentrated. Carter rescues Dejah Thoris from the green men in a bid to return her to her people.

Burroughs began work on A Princess of Mars in the summer of 1911 when he was 35. [6] He wrote most of the first half of the novel while working for his brother in a stationery company, penning the words on scratch pads produced by the business. [7] He had been struggling for some time to establish himself as a businessman, so far with little success, and with a wife and two children to support, turned to writing in desperate need of income. Despite failure in his business affairs, he had accumulated a wealth of unusual experiences from working a variety of jobs which had brought him into contact with miners, soldiers, cowboys, and Native Americans .
