THE GAMER’S BOOKSHELF:
JETAN: THE MARTIAN CHESS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS
by Fredrik Ekman
(McFarland & Company, Inc., softcover, 203 pages, $49.95)
One of the most prolific and successful writers of 20th century fantasy fiction is Edgar Rice Burroughs. Probably ERB’s most famous creation is Tarzan but his creativity didn’t stop there. Another success was his series of novels featuring John Carter, Warlord of Mars. But adventures on Barsoom (the Martian word for their home planet) was not the only creation from the fertile mind of ERB. There was also jetan.
