Wizard Of Venus by Edgar Rice Burroughs, December 1, , Ace edition, in English.
How did he wind up on Venus instead? But it is typical of Carson Napier. Even he himself comments upon his curious faculty for getting into trouble, in his own introductory note to The Wizard of Venus. But whether Carson is a great adventurer or a mere incompetent, he does manage to bungle and barge his way into some of the most entertaining scrapes in all imaginative literature.
The one he faces in The Wizard of Venus is superb! Major Burroughs and his wife Mary had five other boys besides Edgar, but two of the children died in infancy, leaving Edgar the youngest of the family. In , Burroughs decided to write a full-blown novel, and the tale he wrote was as far removed from the life of a pencil sharpener wholesaler as one could possibly imagine. This flight of fancy, entitled "Dejah Thoris, Martian Princess," was so exotic that Burroughs was worried that editors might think he was a little touched in the head.
So he submitted the story under a pseudonym, Normal Bean, a joke indicating that his head was indeed screwed on the right way. In submitting his manuscript to All-Story magazine he found luck the first time out: editor Thomas Metcalf liked the tale and offered Burroughs dollars, an extravagant sum. Burroughs wound up being renamed as well: his pseudonym was changed to Norman Bean. One idea shaping the story is that traits such as being prone to piracy are at least somewhat inherited - thus being Jean Lafitte's descendant makes him prone to becoming a pirate, given the opportunity.
One of his sometime love interests is named Daisy Juke - a descendant of the notorious Juke s family google "Jukes family" for more info. First, this Venus story is just unessential.
As the series progressed I grew tired of it all and this story is just a waste of time. Second, Pirates Blood was an okay fiction story.
Starring a resilient man like all of Burroughs protagonists that I've read so far. The life or death suspense goes out the window though when the story is in first person perspective.
Neither story was published in Burroughs life time so maybe he wasn't ready The two stories in this volume couldn't be more different. Leo Tolstoy.
