“Skeleton Men of Jupiter,” was first published in Amazing Stories in 1943. Intended as the first in a series of novelettes to be later collected in book form, in the fashion of Llana of Gathol, it ends with the plot unresolved, and the intended sequels were never written.

This is the twelfth and final entry in Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Barsoom series (or, if you’re a movie buff, the John Carter of Mars series). This entry, Skeleton Men of Jupiter, is really short, as was the previous entry, John Carter and the Giant of Mars, and are often bound together as one volume, despite having nothing to do with each other.

A rip-roaring read until it abruptly ends, stranding John Carter and Dejah Thoris on the inhospitable world of Jupiter, or Sasoom if you'd rather. There are definitely better John Carter stories.

Great end to the series
Robert Lent
This was much better than John Carter and the Giant of Mars. That book reads like a poor imitation of a Barsoom book, this one felt like a Barsoom book. It was a short work, and the ending was a little abrupt.
What's there is great, but he cuts off the ending abruptly without really finishing the story properly as though he ran out of words and had to stop.
Salman Ali
Sub-standard writing and brutal ending which could have been better... Not up to the usual standard of other stories in Barsoom Series..
I wish that this story was able to be finished.
