The Chessman of Mars



Tara and Gahan are each Barsoomian royalty, residing in two prominent cities, Helium, and Gathol. Hoping to align the cities and enjoy the advantages of a romantic union, Gahan wishes to marry Tara. However, Tara does not reciprocate this love. After rejecting the engagement, Tara sets out in her flying ship. When she flies into a turbulent storm, Tara crashes her ship in an unknown territory. Unharmed but still in danger, Tara is forced to run from her ship to escape the wild animals of the area, falling into a trap. Kidnapped by Kaldanes, a group of Barsoomians with large heads and six crab-like legs, Tara must find a way to save herself before her captors achieve their plan of eating her. Meanwhile, perturbed by her disappearance, Gahan sets out to find Tara. But when he runs into the same storm Tara crashed in, his ship goes down, leaving him in a similar predicament. Through stealth, charm, and cleverness, Tara and Gahan are able to escape with their new friend, Ghek. When they find themselves in an isolated city, the trio are trapped once again, and this time, they’ll have to win a violent and deadly game to reclaim their freedom. Continuing the legacy of the mighty John Carter, The Chessman of Mars depicts a new generation’s adventures on the thrilling planet of Mars. With imaginative prose, romance, and adventure, Burroughs’ The Chessmen of Mars still fosters an exhilarating reading experience nearly one-hundred years after its publication. This edition of The Chessmen of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs features a new, eye-catching cover design and is printed in an easy-to-read font. With these accommodations, The Chessmen of Mars caters to a modern audience while preserving the original wonder and adventure of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ work.
