The initial wave of Barsoom's popularity, in the '20s and '30s, spawned imitators in the form of Ralph Milne Farley and Otis Adelbert Kline who were very close to Burroughs in their own environment and sensibility.
This second wave in the latter half of the 20th century spawned its own tribute series the most notable being Michael Moorcock's Mars trilogy, Leigh Brackett's ‘Eric John Stark’ and Martian novels and stories, and Lin Carter's Callisto series.
Set in orbit on Callisto, a moon of Jupit

Another good title. About average for the series. Enjoyable but doesn't knock your socks off.
