I saw a couple of the Carson of Venus novels online and wondered how
they compare to ERB's Barsoom novels. Any good? Should I include
them on my Christmas list?
In my humble opinion, Yes! Especially "Pirates" and "Lost." Perhaps the best
duology Burroughs ever wrote.

- The first book, Pirates, is excellent. Then they go gradually down in
quality. The final story, Wizard, is quite terrible. But I recommend the
first two or three ones. After that you may as well read the rest too,
just to complete the series...
