"Oh, I wish I were anywhere but here, anywhere out of this redtape-ridden world of ours! I wish I were in the planet Mars!" Whisked away to the legendary red planet, the intrepid Lieutenant Gullivar Jones is caught up in the adventure of a lifetime. To win the love of a beautiful princess, he fights his way across a dying and savage planet of desolate cities, lost races, utopian societies, and the haunting and unforgettable River of Death. This classic, influential tale of Mars, written in the utopian tradition of H. G. Wells's The Time Machine, is also considered a possible inspiration for the immortal Barsoom of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Both reflective and imaginative, Gullivar of Mars celebrates the acuity and storytelling power of science fiction writers of the early twentieth century and continues to influence writers and to entertain readers today. This commemorative edition includes the full text of the classic 1905 edition, a new introduction by Richard A. Lupoff, an illustration by Thomas Floyd, and an afterword by Gary Hoppenstand. Edwin L. Arnold (1857-1935) was the author of several books, including Lepidus the Centurion: A Roman of Today. Richard A. Lupoff is the author of Claremont Tales and Circumpolar: A Novel. Gary Hoppenstand is a professor of American thought and language at Michigan State University. He is the author of Clive Barker's Short Stories: Imagination as Metaphor in the Books of Blood and Other Works and the editor of Popular Fiction: An Anthology, which won the Popular Culture Association's National Book Award.

Adventure fiction is one of the easiest narrative forms to recognize but one of the hardest to define because of its overlap with many other genres. This collection of essays attempts to characterize adventure fiction through the exploration of key elements--such as larger-than-life characters and imperialistic ideas--in the genre's 19th- and 20th-century British and American works like The Scarlet Pimpernel by Orczy and Captain Blood by Sabatini. The author explores the cultural and literary impact of such works, presenting forgotten classics in a new light.

In 1905, Edwin L. 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 this 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. 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.
