1905: Gulliver Of Mars by Edwin L. Arnold
May 28, 2008
A U.S. Marine travels to the red planet (Support Our Troops On Mars!) where he engages in a series of swashbuckling adventures amongst the locals. Personally, I find swashbuckling somewhat clumsy, and prefer to secure my swashes with something more convenient than a buckle. Although ‘a swash-Velcroing adventure’ doesn’t sound nearly as exciting.
On a scale of planets ranging from Ork to Melmac, this book is: Omicrom Persii 8.
