Gulliver of Mars

Gulliver of Mars by Edwin L. Arnold
By:

This escapist novel, first published in 1905 as Lieutenant Gullivar Jones: His Vacation, follows the exploits of American Navy Lieutenant Gulliver Jones, a bold, if slightly hapless, hero who is magically transported to Mars; where he almost outwits his enemies, almost gets the girl, and almost saves the day.

Somewhat of a literary and chronological bridge between H.G. Wells and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jones’ adventures provide an evocative mix of satire and sword-and-planet adventure.

Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 2 reviews)

Subject: Gulliver of Mars
This was the model for Edgar Burroughs' much more famous series of tales of Mars. It's quite a bit better. As Bernie wrote earlier, it is fantastic, but that doesn't harm it a bit. As the ancient Indians had it, there are 9 emotions and every tale should give one of them priority. Mysteries stimulate suspense. Farces stimulate mirth. Fantastic fiction of all sorts stimulates wonder. This isa much better measure than subject matter for the reader. Anyway, the book is a rolicking adventure with crisply drawn characters and situations. It prefigures so much in latter sci-fi - such as gender bending - that you will wonder if it really was written in the Edwardian Age!

More of a fantasy story than science fiction, enjoyable though a little long winded in nature, well read.
