(I'm going to copy'n'paste this one into all of my Carson of Venus reviews)
Obviously Burroughs' two most famous creations are Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, but for me, I find his Carson of Venus books to be the most enjoyable of anything he wrote about.
Carson is a manly man, but lacks completely Carter's astonishing ego, and Tarzan's tremendous strength. He is modest, yet confident, and definitely not a super man---which makes his exploits that much more exciting and heroic.
The Carson of Venus series is one of those sadly all-too-common intentions of the Golden Age of SF and Fantasy which was cut short in its prime.
Carson, we hardly knew ya.
