4. The Barsoom Series (Edgar Rice Burroughs)

comic book,comics,warlord,pc game,mythology,

This series recently made it to movie screens in the form of John Carter. There are actually eleven books in the series that are worth reading if you enjoy fantasy and adventure novels. The science in the books is quite definitely fiction, since it relates the adventures of John Carter among the civilisations of Mars, but it's still a fun, if somewhat dated set of stories. Burroughs also wrote a shorter series set on Venus.
