As befits the ambitious scope of the story, the artistic presentation is unparalleled. One-hundred-thirty new illustrations were commissioned for this opus, with contributions by Thomas Grindberg, Michael C. Hoffman, and Craig Mullins, on archival, acid-free paper, bound in leather (banth and thoat) in one giant volume.
Published late in 2014, until now this was only available from the publisher. We are pleased to be the exclusive second source for the amazing project, which was co-published with the well-respected Russ Cochran.
In 1913, Edgar Rice Burroughs contemplated penning a crossover tale uniting his two greatest creations, Tarzan and John Carter of Mars. He ultimately gave the idea up as unworkable, concerned that he couldn’t do justice to both heroes in one novel.
In an alternate universe, Burroughs not only wrote that tale, he lived it–and presented the manuscript to author Jake “Buddy” Saunders’ grandfather. Decades later, Saunders has chosen to share it with the world.
Martian Legion delivers on all counts. It’s a story too big to be contained in one pulp hero franchise, one world, one age, or one universe.
A pantheon of heroes, including Tarzan, John Carter, Doc Savage, The Shadow, Carson Napier, Alley Oop and more gather to combat a foe across planets, dimensions, and time. The epic account unspools across a quarter of a million words, and takes readers not only to Africa and Barsoom, but to new worlds, with new heroes in the grandest Burroughsian tradition.
The novel solves many of the conundrums and undeveloped strands in the Burroughs universe, while setting the stage for sequels–perhaps a trilogy taking us to Venus and Beyond the Farthest Star is in order?
