Ah there s nothing like a good unapologetic planetary romance I read the ACE edition which invites comparison between Otis Adelbert Kline and Edgar Rice Burroughs On reading the book I can see why Kline was considered serious competition for Burroughs The Swordsman of Mars is than a Barsoom clone though it is very much it s own thing Like Burroughs himself Kline draws on various adventure and fantasy tropes and applies them for maximum effect Our hero is a man on Earth in present day 30s when written adjusted to look like 60s for the ACE version Harry Thorne who a scientist rescues from suicide so he can send his consciousness into another body on Mars Mars has got swords monsters airships castles awesomeness Oooo and there are space commies Harry Thorne must take out another guy from Earth who is second in command of the space commies and trying to take over all of Mars for himself Most writer don t seem to give the sword and planet genre its due credit it s actually a delicate balance that s eual parts Jules Verne Dumas and oddly Horatio Alger The story races along nicely with a series of attacks and escapes and sneaking and plotting Thorne winds up separated from the Martian scientist who knows he s from Earth and doesn t know anything about Mars so he has to wing it much of the time The romantic element is present Thorne winds up juggling two attractive princesses There s also some fae little people who are basically magic Oh There s also a race of yellow aliens apart from the hot looking humanoids and these guys have a death ray which becomes important to the conflict Stacking this up against other major sword and planet series it isn t uite the high that A Princess of Mars was objectively it s probably better than Gulliver of Mars mostly due to the tight pacing here and it soars above later attempts like Moorcock s City of the Beast or the Dray Prescott books Oh and I think John Norman s Gor plucked a few things from this like people flying around on bird monsters and the cylinder cities The Swordsman of Mars was a lot of fun and there s plenty right with it It s got the conflict the Murphy s Law factor where the hero is always up against it plenty of random planet stuff and it s got a duel where the hero carves his name on a guy This was a worthwhile example of the genre and it s got me excited to read from Kline
