Swords On Mars
One of the endearing facets of the Barsoom series of Edgar Rice Burroughs, 
is the idea of sword-play.
John Carter wins because he has the courage to face his enemy, 
with naught but a piece of sharp metal to win or lose. 
It is this flash of steel and his reactions and skills that attract us and 
appeals to our sense of morality, decency, and  integrity.

It's ALL The Same Mars
A 16,700-word article by Den Valdron
Looking at the Mars stories of other writers from Burroughs time period between 1880 and 1940 
we see a basic commonality to most of the Mars stories by different writers. 
They were, after all, writing about the same world, and sharing the same assumptions.
