A lot has been written about the Barzoom Series and John Carter. There's not much more that could possibily be said.
ERB is timeless and as classic as science fiction gets.
All of his stories are worth reading and then passing them down to a young reader. I grew up reading his books, now I collect his books. if you ever get ahold of one of his books (think twice) before you put it back on the shelf...It's well worth the time to read it.
A Princess of Mars remains my favorite. This is truly great storytelling, with all the classic elements in it: characters that feel like real friends, swashbukling, romance, some of the most evil villains around, and men and women with not just courage but with honor, pride, and integrity. You should not judge this series by the movie. I don't know what made them think they could transfer something like this to film to begin with. Not all books are meant to be made into over-inflated, big budget super hero movies.

I love, love, love this series. These are the classics that you can point to and say, 'they don't write them like that anymore'. There are other classic sf reads that I do enjoy, but these lead the pack. You absolutely must read this series if you are into sf/f. Now if only the club would get ALL of the Pellucidar books and Carson of Venus.

i have enjoyed erb's books since my grand father gave the first tarzan book in the 1950's. at this point I am atemting to gather his other series which have disapered of 42 years of Af department of af service with the several books in this series at the to of the list. I can only hope SFBC brings the back
I have read these books at least 4 times, twice as a teenager, once again in my 30's and again a few years ago. They are seminal, they are darn good fun. Sword and sorcery before Conan, tight plotting when he probably could have gotten away without it. I'm still looking for the door to the dimension wherein this is real and a way to get a few billion barrels of water to.... well, read and enjoy
