New book: Paizo reprint of Otis Adelbert Kline’s classic novel The Outlaws of Mars

Paizo Publishing has released its unabridged reprint of The Outlaws of Mars (2009), a classic sword-and-planet tale written by Otis Adelbert Kline that was first published as a seven-part serial in Argosy magazine in 1933 and 1934. The latest book in Paizo’s Planet Stories series, The Outlaws of Mars has an introduction by Joe R. Lansdale that puts the novel and Kline, a contemporary of Edgar Rice Burroughs, into a modern context.

Here’s a description of The Outlaws of Mars, taken directly from Paizo’s website:

“Jerry Morgan accepts his scientist uncle’s offer to transport him
to Mars for a series of thrilling adventures and exploits featuring terrible monsters, fantastic societies, and gorgeous princesses in
the Edgar Rice Burroughs tradition.”

I recently ordered a copy of The Outlaws of Mars and I can hardly wait to read it!
