A Princess of Mars

A Princess of Mars (1917) is a science fantasy novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first of his Barsoom series. Full of swordplay and daring feats, the novel is considered a classic example of 20th century pulp fiction. It is also a seminal instance of the planetary romance, a sub-genre of science fantasy that became highly popular in the decades following its publication. The story is set on Mars, imagined as a dying planet with a harsh desert environment.

I like finding weird and different versions of A Princess of Mars covers. Some are real, some are just someone's mockup of a cover. Either way, I find it fascinating to view how different artists see the world of Barsoom. Here's a strange one by Patrick Anthony Pierson. Is this the atmosphere factory?
