EarlyWord has an entry about the Disney movie "John Carter" that is based on the book "Princess of Mars" by Edgar Rice Burroughs.


Free Kindle version: A Princess of Mars

Hardcover "Library of America" edition is only $10.75 - A Princess of Mars

Paperback editions run from $6 to $11

A Princess of Mars($10.99)

A Princess of Mars (The Barsoom Series, Book 1) ($6.30)

Cheaper $6 paperback is not selling as well as the $10.99 version. I think the poorly designed cover may play into that.

Book is not in copyright so there are several publishers currently offering the book. See book at Project Gutenberg.
