The Princess and the Messiah

A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs; Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert Heinlein. Two books I’ve read multiple times; two authors I have greatly respected. But although I gave the tales of John Carter to my sons a few years ago, I rather thought that I’d outgrown Burroughs. Now, thanks to the inimitable John C. Wright, I begin to think I’m outgrowing Heinlein. Checkout Wright’s comparison of the two books, very much to Heinlein’s detriment.
