I love these books. I NEED more. The world needs more interplanetary romance adventure this-kind-of-stuff. I read Sky People when it came out and really enjoyed it, but being a Barsoomian obsessive I was really pumped for In the Courts of the Crimson Kings. And I was right.

( Note - the martians have a formal language that is structured like the language from the show Deadwood, without the profanity. Once you get the swing of it, it's hysterical )

I just read the paperback on holidays, but I need to get the hard cover to match my hardcover of The Sky People. And it's ripe for a third one ! All of you, go out and buy them now !

I'm the same way. I thought the Courts of the Crimson Kings was an oustanding, even stunning achievement. I didn't like The Sky people as much but it was still pretty decent. I definitely want to see more.
