Sword & Planet action on distant worlds of high adventure!
Thursday, September 6, 2012
A lot of focus has been given to Burroughs' Mars adventures, but Warriors of the Red Planet spans the entire genre of Sword and Planet which was quite a popular genre in the early 20th century mostly thanks to Burroughs and those inspired by his work.
Amtor is the name given for Venus in the Carson Napier of Venus series. While not quite as good as the Mars series, they were still rip roaring fun, particularly Pirates of Venus. This map of Amtor was drawn by Burroughs himself and was used as the end covers of the original hard back editions.
