A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

CITIZENS OF MARS!
Woe! The King of Mars is dead!
Weep for Abraham!

I wrote about Edgar Rice Burrough's John Carter of Mars series on Tor.com with Tim. You know I like that Barsoom stuff. First time I read A Princess of Mars I was blown away. Go read about it; maybe you've got thoughts of your own? I'm a big fan of comment sections.

The Dying Earth by Jack Vance.

As Mars died, so too
Will Earth pass away, perish.
This: the last winter.

I also wrote a Tor.com post about Jack Vance's Dying Earth with Tim. I mean, speaking of things you know already, Jack Vance! I sure like Jack Vance; along with Proust & Borges he was like, the biggest influence on Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun & you know how I groove hard on that album.



While I'm at it, I wrote about how science has made Superman's Fortress of Solitude Donner Kryptonian Crystals real.
