Pulp fiction from last century

A Princess of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs, John Seelye

The first in the John Carter books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this is typical of his writing and pulp fiction of last century. Many chapters end on a cliffhanger as this was written for serialization. Action and adventure abound.
I love this stuff: it's simple fun story-telling that doesn't pretend to be more than that. This is a re-read for me but always worth coming back to.
