Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel “Captive of the Centaurianess” is a top science fiction gem by one of the true masters of science fiction, Poul Anderson. She was the toughest dame this side of Jupiter as Ray Ballantyne soon found out. The entire Solar System was after Ballantyne. Earth wanted him. The Jovian war-fleet jetted on his trail. His future didn’t look any too good. But mainly Ballantyne feared his big-bosomed, sword-swinging space-mate—Dyann the Amazon from man-starved Alpha Centauri III. Along with the help of a brilliant but stuffy Martian scientist, Ray and Dyann embarked on a trek through space that would take them beyond the Solar System and back again. Master sci-fi author Poul Anderson spins a marvelous tale of deep space adventure that’s not only filled with action and intrigue, but also offers a brilliant touch of interplanetary wit. “Captive of the Centaurianess” is a true science fiction gem. The wilds of Mars await you in the second novel. “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This classic is considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Try to imagine what it would be like—one minute you’re in the wilds of the American West, fleeing from marauding Indian warriors; then in the next minute your life force floats out of your unconscious body toward the distant heavens…toward Mars! That’s what happened to John Carter, and when his body regained its physical nature, he was lying in a bed of moss-like vegetation on the surface of the planet Mars. Carter’s wild, fantastic adventures on the red planet were epic in every sense of the word. They were the main course in one of the most brilliant and beloved science fiction novels ever concocted, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ definitive masterpiece, “A Princess of Mars.”
