In retrospect, I believe I was thrown by two factors inherent in Burroughs' narrative. First, the plant men are described as "hideous," "ghoulish," and "awful travesties of nature.
Since Lester del Rey certainly gave me free rein to be as accurate as possible, in retrospect I don't k now why I assumed such an attitude. Second, I felt overwhelmed by Burroughs' florid descriptions of the visual aspects of the scene--everything was a brilliant color of one sort or another, and in attempting to portray the scene as described I lost any feeling for balance or unity in the color scheme.

Now he was trapped in the legendary Eden of Mars - an Eden from which none ever escaped alive. Barsoom is a fictional representation of the planet Mars created by American pulp fiction author Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Ten sequels followed over the next three decades, further extending his vision of Barsoom and adding other characters. The world of Barsoom is a romantic vision of a dying Mars.
Writers and science popularizers like Camille Flammarion, who was convinced that Mars was at a later stage of evolution than Earth and therefore much more dry, took the ideas further and published books like Les Terres du Ciel , which contained illustrations of a planet covered with canals. Burroughs gives credits to him in his writings, and goes as far as to say that he based his vision of Mars on that of Flammarion. John Carter is transported to Mars in a way described by Flammarion in Urania , where a man from earth is transported to Mars as an astral body where he wakes up to a lower gravity, two moons, strange plants and animals and several races of advanced humans.
In The Plurality of Inhabited Worlds and Lumen, he further speculates about plant people and other creaturs on far away planets, elements that would later appear in the Barsoom stories. The Barsoom series, where John Carter in the late s is mysteriously transported from Earth to a Mars suffering from dwindling resources, has been cited by many well known science fiction writers as having inspired and motivated them in their youth, as well as by key scientists involved in both space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life. Elements of the books have been adapted by many writers, in novels, short stories, comics, television and film.
