Books Description:

The Gods of Mars is an Edgar Rice Burroughs science fiction novel, the second of his famous Barsoom series. It can be said that the novel set the tone for much science fiction to come. Its influence can clearly be seen in franchises such as Star Trek and Farscape. While Burroughs no doubt borrowed liberally from the pulp fiction of his day, particularly westerns and swashbuckling tales, the pacing and themes set the tone for the soft science fiction genre. The protagonist, John Carter, with his proficiency in hand-to-hand combat and flirtations with beautiful alien women, could be said to have set the mold for later influential icons like Captain James T. Kirk and James Bond.

Books Description:

When John Carter discovers that his beloved wife, Dejah, has been imprisoned in the Temple of the Sun, he is desperate to rescue her. However, the prison, which slowly rotates, is only opened once a Barsoomian year. As Dejah’s prison sentence drags on for over a hundred days, the window of opportunity is narrowing for Carter to save her. Amid social and political unrest from the last war, the Thern had appointed a new leader, but many still believed in their ideologies. When Carter discovers that the new Thern leader, Matai Shang, and another new leader, Thurid, know the secret of the Temple of the Sun and intend to plan a prison break, he follows them, in hopes he could benefit from their plan. After Thurid and Matai Shang break out the prisoners that they planned to rescue: Phaidor, the daughter of the Holy Thern, and Thuvia, a Barsoomian princess, the two decide to take Dejah as well, not to save her but out of spite and contempt for Carter. As Carter chases after them in hopes of freeing his wife, he risks it all to save her and restore peace, encountering ambushes, new discoveries, and dramatic trials.

First published in 1914, Burroughs’ imaginative work is a perfect example of 20th century pulp fiction.

Books Description:

Filled with entertaining history, archival images, pop culture ephemera, and interviews with NASA scientists, The Big Book of Mars is the most comprehensive look at our relationship with Mars—yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Mars has been a source of fascination and speculation ever since the Ancient Sumerians observed its blood-red hue and named it for their god of war and plague. But it wasn't until 1877, when "canals" were observed on the surface of the Red Planet, suggesting the presence of water, that scientists, novelists, filmmakers, and entrepreneurs became obsessed with the question of whether there's life on Mars. In The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells suggested that we wouldn't need to make contact with Martians—they'd come for us—while, many years later, Nikola Tesla claimed that he did make contact. Since then, Mars has fully invaded pop culture. It has its own day of the week (Tuesday, or martis in Latin), candy bar, and iconic Looney Tunes character. It has been the subject of novels and movies, from Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles to Mars Attacks! to The Martian. And it has sparked a space-race feud between Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, who both hope to send a manned mission to Mars in the near future.
