New reprint of ERB's A Princess of Mars ideal for litigious students

Maryland-based publisher Arc Manor's new reprint of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic novel, A Princess of Mars (1917), is ideal for litigious students like Justin D. Gawronski, the Michigan high schooler who became so emotionally unbound after Amazon’s Kindle e-reader deleted his summer reading notes to George Orwell's novel 1984 he initiated a class-action lawsuit against the Internet giant.

Part of the attractively-priced Phoenix Science Fiction Classics series, A Princess of Mars includes critical essays by acclaimed author and Arizona State University professor Paul Cook and by Alexei Panshin & Cory Panshin, co-authors of the Hugo Award-winning nonfiction book on the history of science fiction, The World Beyond the Hill: Science Fiction and the Quest for Transcendence (1989); a chronology of the life of Edgar Rice Burroughs; a bibliography of science fiction works; and, most importantly, special margins providing students with a liberal amount of space for taking notes (view sample).
