Gulliver of Mars

Edwin Lester Arnold,

Gulliver of Mars
 
 

Action, romance, fantastic creatures and a bit of satire distinguish this groundbreaking novel of adventure fantasy.

By incredible accident Gulliver Jones finds himself on Mars, interacting with strange beings and stranger societies and embarked on a quest to save a beautiful princess from a cruel tyrant. First published in England in 1905 under the title Lt. Gullivar Jones: His Vacation, the book was re-titled Gulliver of Mars when first published in the USA in 1964. The novel can be seen as an example of both early science fiction and the genre of Planetary Romance made popular by Edgar Rice Burroughs and later carried on by C.S. Lewis, Michael Moorcock, Jack Vance, Anne McCaffrey and others. The author shows the influence of H.G. Wells and supplies a bit of satire in the vein of Jonathan Swift, as might be suspected from the title. Gulliver Jones is a unique character, brave but slightly out of his depth in a new world, and his adventures among the crumbling cities, dense jungles and strange beasts of Mars are distinctively his own. Although no sequels to Gulliver of Mars were written, the character has lived on in several comic books.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Gulliver of Mars is both modern and readable.
