Narrator:

The first manned spaceship to reach the moon discovered a world hidden from human eyes – a world of flying women, of conical cities, and of semi-human monsters who fought for power across these eerie Lunar plains.

The Moon Maid is a fantasy novel by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, belonging to the Lost World sub-genre. It was written in three parts, Part 1 was begun in June 1922 under the title The Moon Maid, Part 2 was begun in 1919 under the title Under the Red Flag, later retitled The Moon Men, Part 3 was titled The Red Hawk. As evident from its name, Under the Red Flag was originally set in contemporary Soviet Russia, with the Bolsheviks as villains; as this was not popular with the publishers, Burroughs transferred it to a science-fictional setting, with the evil Communist-like “Kalkars” taking over the Moon (in the first part) and then the Earth (in the second part, with the help of a renegade Earthman) and being finally overthrown in the third part. (Also the Thorists, villains of Pirates of Venus, are clearly modeled on the Russian Communists.)

Pirates of Venus
Carson Napier set out for Mars in a secret interplanetary rocket but found himself instead on a different world—the cloud-hidden planet Venus. Venus was a startling world—semi-private, semi-civilized. It was a place of unmapped oceans dotted with great islands; a world whose trees pierced the clouds and whose cities squatted on their branches; a planet whose inhabitants included men, half-men, and monsters, all struggling with each other for dominance.

Lost on Venus
Carson Napier begins this book in the Room of the Seven Doors. He can leave any time he wants, but six of the seven doors lead to hideous deaths; only one is the door of life. After navigating his way out of this logic puzzle, Carson continues his quest to rescue the planet’s fairest princess. He pursues this with single-mindedness, even though more terrible dangers lie ahead; even though the princess wishes neither his help or his affection; even though her people will execute him if he enters their country! Such is the honor of an Earthman’s pledge.

Carson of Venus
On the mist-shrouded planet of Venus, advanced civilizations blessed with eternal youth co-existed with cities haunted by the living dead, while bloodthirsty man-beasts stalked the luminous nights. Earthman Carson Napier knew how to survive the planet’s many perils-but now a merciless tribunal had condemned Carson’s beloved princess Duare to death. To save her life, the courageous Earthman stole the only airplane on Venus. But on the lovers’ flight to freedom, they learned that Duare’s father had been captured by a mad dictator. Across uncharted oceans teeming with fierce sea monsters, and through skies where man had never flown before, Carson of Venus risked his life to thwart an evil tyrant’s plan.

Escape on Venus
With his beloved princess, Duare, at his side, Carson Napier has once again managed to escape the scheming webs of Amtor’s fearsome powers—only to fall prey to a hideous race of humanoid amphibians, ruled by the dread king Tyros the Bloody. But Carson is far more than a fugitive and a captive: he is the only Earthman to have penetrated the forbidding clouds surrounding Venus, there to become a pirate, an explorer, and finally a prince of her cities.

The Wizard of Venus
Carson Napier is trapped in the castle of an insane Venusian “wizard” who holds the local population in thrall through the use of hypnotic powers. Napier, who is possessed of comparable powers he has hitherto utilized solely to transmit his account of his Venusian adventures back to Earth, successfully counters the tyrant and frees his victims.

John Carter, a Confederate veteran of the American Civil War, goes prospecting in Arizona immediately after the war’s end. Having struck a rich vein of gold, he runs afoul of the Apaches. While attempting to evade pursuit by hiding in a sacred cave, he is mysteriously transported to Mars, called “Barsoom” by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has great strength and superhuman agility in this new environment as a result of its lesser gravity and lower atmospheric pressure. He soon falls in with a nomadic tribe of Green Martians, or Tharks, as the planet’s warlike, six-limbed, green-skinned inhabitants are known. Thanks to his strength and martial prowess, Carter rises to a high position in the tribe and earns the respect and eventually the friendship of Tars Tarkas, one of the Thark chiefs.
