As a Kid i had come across one Edgar Rice Burroughs books in a bookstore, The cover was handpainted and well taken care of. It was not the cover that had won me over it was the first capter of the wonderful book that had me. As time passed i aquired all of the Mars series and continue even now to reread them time and again, and again. Find something new evertime I Read. To Mr Edgar Rice Burroughs i wish you would have written more of them
