LLANA OF GATHOL
From Works of Wonder:
"Since I did the eleven books over the course of a year, as time went on some things became less important. This time we did not worry about the title of the book, and Llana herself does not even appear in my painting. I realized that after doing nine covers I still ahd not shown one of the unique Barsoomian airships so commonly featured throughout the series. To tell the truth, I felt there was little point in doing so, since Robert Abbett had done such a great job visualizing them on the covers he painted for the books in the 1960's. Nevertheless, this scene involved an airship and also conveyed the feeling of the book very well."
Llana of Gathol
Edgar Rice Burroughs returns to Barsoom and his eternal hero, John Carter for four more thrilling adventures in Llana of Gathol. In "The Ancient Dead" John Carter is cast into the catacombs underneath the inpregnable citadel of Horz. There he discovers his granddaughter, Llana of Gathol, stranded there after escaping abduction. Next, Carter, Llana, and friends are captured by the "Black Pirates of Barsoom". As slaves controlled by a diabolical machine, Carter must fight to survive and free his friends. In "Escape on Mars", Carter and friends are shot down by a mysterious ship. Carter is rescued by the Panars, but his friends disappear. He tracks Llana to the inescapable city of Pankar. It will take all his talents to rescue her. Finally, "The Invisible Men of Mars" make their debut as Carter and Llana escape Pankar. John Carter will have yet another princess of Mars on his hands and have to wage war before he can return to his wife back in Helium.
