As the story continues we are introduced to the many wonders of Mars, for example, how the atmosphere is maintained by isolating and utilizing the ninth ray of the sun to generate the required atmospheric conditions to support life. We are further introduced to the many mechanical wonders in Mars along with the culture of the stead-holders and their domesticated animals. This rich and detailed explanation help us understand the World of Mars as intended by Burroughs. This is a magnificent interpretation of this great yarn that promises many moments of entertainment and countless re-reads. Well done Dynamite and thanks for the great covers.
