Barbarians of Mars!
Once an American physicist whose experiments in matter transmission catapulted him across space and time, Michael Kane has grown comfortable in his new role as a prince of ancient Mars. Yet now a new peril threatens his adopted homeland — a plague called the Green Death, spread by zealots who are more machines than men. In order to find a cure, Kane and his Blue Giant comrade Hool Haji will need to cross oceans, battle hideous mutants and barbarians, and perhaps even sacrifice his adopted kingdom. But can all the swords and airships in the world prevail against an enemy that cannot be killed?
