Latest Acquisition

I've been trying to get a complete set of the Frazetta illustrated hardcovers of John Carter of Mars. Finally found a set at a reasonable price.
Can't read these enough times! Every time I discover something new and interesting I hadn't noticed before. Since I had recently reread the Dune series, I noticed a lot of similarities between the Fremen and the Tharks. Both with their hard lives in the desert, neither culture sheds tears, and combat is a way of life. I have little doubt Frank Herbert got some inspiration from Burroughs.
