Post Burroughs, Edgar Rice: Barsoom Omnibus. v4, 12 Apr 2012

A bit of light-hearted relief from the serious stuff, here's Edgar Rice Burroughs' complete "Barsoom" series, in one (very long!) book:

1. A Princess of Mars
2. The Gods of Mars
3. The Warlord of Mars
4. Thuvia, Maid of Mars
5. The Chessmen of Mars
6. The Master Mind of Mars
7. A Fighting Man of Mars
8. Swords of Mars
9. Synthetic Men of Mars
10. Llana of Gathol
11. John Carter of Mars

Just in case anyone isn't familiar with it, the "Barsoom" series is the architypal "boys' own adventure" type stories, set on (a fantasic) planet Mars, with muscle-bound heroes, princesses to be rescued from fates worse than death, wierd monsters, etc etc. It's true to say that "Star Wars" would never have existed without "Barsoom".

I've done this along the same lines as my previous "Complete Sherlock Holmes" book; there's a book index at the start, and selecting a book takes you to a contents page for that book.

I naively thought this would be quick to produce, but I've just finished it after a 12h "marathon". Many of the PG sources (especially for the later books in the series) are extremely poorly formatted, and needed a great deal of work to make them look reasonable.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 8 Jan 08

Completely recreated the book with improved formatting. Now a proper MobiPocket book with full-sized pictures, library information, etc. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 29 Jul 09

Replaced books 2-4 in the series with improved versions from PG. Added an improved cover. Changed the name from "Barsoom Collection" to "Barsoom Omnibus" to be consistent with my other omnibus editions. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 12 Apr 12

Completely reformatted and thoroughly proofed against printed versions of all 11 of the books that comprise the omnibus. Goodness knows how many thousand errors corrected, and a considerable amount of text added which was previously missing. I would now regard this as a finished product; if you find any errors, no matter how small, please let me know so that they can be corrected. Uploaded v4.

You've got this already, UncleDuke. Now I've gone over to the "dark side" and bought an iLiad, these are just conversions of the older Sony books for Mobipocket .

Brilliant - I've not read this series before, many thanks

(On my Palm TX the link to the first book takes me to "XII Warrior's Reward" - but all the other links seem ok.)

I want to re-do this book (it was one of my early ones and I've learned a lot since doing it) but it may take a while for it to reach the top of the pile. Please forgive any inadequacies in it in the mean time.

Not a problem Harry, I am reading it now, and it looks great. Um, any chance of your Tarzan books coming to the mobipocket side?

I'll do a "quick and dirty" Mobi version for you over the weekend. Again, these really need to be re-done a lot better.

I grabbed the Mobi Barsoom anthology and saw the same problem on my Zodiac.

Harry, a fix for the bad link in the first book would be a boon, if and when.

And have you considered an anthology version of the SS Van Dine "Philo Vance" mysteries, now that you have the complete set?

Er, nicely done indeed, but it shows in Mobi's library list here as "David Copperfield" with the author as "Charles Dickens"...

Fixed. Copied the "David Copperfield" opf file and forgot to click the "Update" button after updating the metadata. Mobi Creator is a little "unfriendly" in that regard.

Thanks. I thought something like that was the case.

I've noticed Mobi's unfriendliness. You would think you could make changes to individual sections, then do one Update to save it all, but it doesn't work that way.
