Original Title: Lieut. Other author's books: Gulliver of Mars.
Original Title: Lieut. It's quite a bit better. As Bernie wrote earlier, it is fantastic, but that doesn't harm it a bit.
Gulliver gets to Mars, and while that may seem exciting, about 30% of the book is over-describing what he sees (which, in the land of Seth, is not that much different than Earth) as well as waiting about because the people of Seth are, well, lazy. However, shortly after Princess Heru is taken away, the book picks up. The narrative turns into a lively adventure, and Gulliver's motives and personality are often witty and hilarious (and only sometimes heroic)

The men of Mars are too cowardly, comfortable and indifferent. The only one who isn't is the prince, who sold off the princess out of jealously, the opposite of Jones' wholesome and manly red blood. Making his way by land and sea, Jones tours the Martian environs and befriends its people.
The men of Mars are too cowardly, comfortable and indifferent. Once or twice he even catches himself feeling more sympathy for the brutish, hairy barbarians than for the weak and waifish native peoples of his princess. Still he presses onwards to win her back to her people and his breast.
