Dare I say that I, a plain, prosaic lieutenant in the republican service have done the incredible things here set out for the love of a woman - for a chimera in female shape; for a pale, vapid ghost of woman-loveliness? At times I tell myself I dare not: that you will laugh, and cast me aside as a fabricator; and then again I pick up my pen and collect the scattered pages, for I MUST write it - the pallid splendour of that thing I loved, and won, and lost is ever before me, and will not be forgotten. The tumult of the struggle into which that vision led me still throbs in my mind, the soft, lisping voices of the planet I ransacked for its sake and the roar of the destruction which followed me back from the quest drowns all other sounds in my ears! I must and will write - it relieves me; read and believe as you list. At the moment this story commences I was thinking of grilled steak and tomatoes - steak crisp and brown on both sides, and tomatoes red as a setting sun!

US Navy officer Gulliver finds himself transported by extraordinary means to the planet, Mars. Soon after his arrival, Gullivar finds himself face to face with all manner of danger. He sees the most terrifying of monsters and finds himself involved in epic battles. Gullivar also finds his heart being drawn to a Martian princess... None of Gullivar's experiences have prepared him for his adventures on the Red Planet. BEFORE JOHN CARTER... There are obvious and clear similarities between Gulliver of Mars and Edgar Rice Burroughs' more famous John Carter books set on Mars - the military man transported to Mars by mystic means, who falls in love with a Martian princess and becomes involved in adventures, though the novel was met with such an insipid reception that it cause Edwin Arnold to stop writing fiction. It is now considered his most famous work. The novel was originaly published as Lieut. Gullivar Jones: His Vacation, but has later been reissued as Gullivar of Mars and Gulliver of Mars.

Many believe that Edgar Rice Burroughs' inspiration to create his world of Barsoom came from this novel. Transported to Mars in a most unexpected fashion, Lieutenant Gulliver Jones, U.S.N., promptly found himself head-over-heels in adventure and romance. Mars was a planet of ruined cities, ancient peoples, copper-skinned swordsmen, and weird and awesome monsters. There was a princess to be rescued, a River of Death to be navigated, and a strange prophecy to be fulfilled.

In 1905, Edwin Arnold adapted the classic Gulliver character and story into the adventures of Gullivar Jones. Like Washington Irving and Mark Twain did with Rip Van Winkle and Hank Morgan, Arnold employs an abstract device to explain how his hero is able to instantaneously be transported to a magical world, but instead of being displaced in time, he finds himself on Mars. Jones is actually carried there by means of a magic carpet, making his novel the first significant contribution to what will become the space fantasy genre. Gullivar Jones is the perfect unifying idea between Jonathan Swift's hero and his more recognizable descendants. Like Lemuel Gulliver, Gullivar Jones employs his courtesies to gain the goodwill of the Martian society. Arnold's novel calls back to Swift's also because it takes a satirical look at society and its irrational particularities of structure. The new element it introduces to that concept is that of swashbuckling space adventure. Jones finds himself in a world of weaklings where he, an average man of our own world, is now superior both in physical strength and mental resolve. This is reminiscent of THE TIME MACHINE, published ten years prior, which thrust its protagonist into a world of soft and simple people who were helpless to defend themselves whenever a threat was introduced into their peaceful primitive lives. Inspired (quite generously) by GULLIVER OF MARS, Edgar Rice Burroughs crafted his own Mars epic, the Barsoom stories of John Carter. Burroughs must have been directly influenced by Arnold's story, because John Carter's adventures follow the same basic framework. Unlike Gullivar Jones, Carter finds himself on Mars after a run-in with Apaches ends with his death. Much like Twain's Hank Morgan, Carter inexplicably wakes up to find himself on the alien world of Barsoom, which he in time comes to learn is the planet Mars. Like its predecessors, A PRINCESS OF MARS makes no effort to explain in rational terms how this is possible.

This is reminiscent of THE TIME MACHINE, published ten years prior, which thrust its protagonist into a world of soft and simple people who were helpless to defend themselves whenever a threat was introduced into their peaceful primitive lives. But Gullivar's adventures have long-reaching effects beyond the modest boundaries of this single book. Just as he was inspired by those who came before him, he in turn serves as inspiration for the most popular space heroes that came after. In this annotated edition, we will explore Gullivar Jones' Martian adventure. Footnotes will be provided within the text where particular lines or passages are individually worthy of mention, but a post-script to each chapter will review the story's impacts and influences along the way. You are probably familiar with more popular variants of this concept, such as those Edgar Rice Burroughs offered in the Barsoom adventures of John Carter, but Gullivar is a worthy predecessor and his story stands on its own as a swashbuckling fairy tale of otherworldly adventure. If you haven't had the opportunity to experience this book before, I think you're in for a treat.
