Tonight, we’ll be reading “A Princess of Mars”, the 1912 science fantasy novel by American author Edgar Rice Burroughs. Full of swordplay and daring feats, the novel is considered a classic example of 20th-century pulp fiction, and of planetary romance. The story is set on Mars, imagined as a dying planet with a harsh desert environment.
