A Princess of Mars

Edgar Rice Burroughs
(as Norman or Normal Bean)

It’s hard to say anything about Burroughs’ classic yarn, the foundation of the “planetary adventure” genre, that hasn’t been said before, elsewhere, and better.  But think!  It was the first story he ever sold, and if he had never written any more, would probably still be remembered as a landmark.

This was the first book I read & recorded for this project, and the original recording is quite rough. When I decided to read the two immediate sequels, The Gods of Mars and The Warlord of Mars (all three novels were bound together by the University of Nebraska Press in an attractive omnibus edition entitled Under the Moons of Mars, the title under which “Princess” was serialized in All-Story Magazine), I chose to read all three books in order, and make my re-recording of A Princess of Mars a Patreon exclusive.

Now Back From Hiatus

This is in the nature of an experiment, albeit a protracted one.

Having come up with the idea of “live-action audiobooks”, or live-streaming myself reading, I realized that the recordings I was making in the process could be edited & sent out later as audio transmissions.  aNONradio seemed like an ideal venue for this, in no small part because of its archive feature.

This is, then, a long-form spoken-word program, consisting mostly of my reading of classic science-fiction novels.  I hope you enjoy!

  • aNONradio timeslot :  15h UTC, Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Twitch streaming :  typically 22h UTC Sundays, with a call-in period during aNONradio OpenVoIP, and 01h Wednesdays & Saturdays (but quite variable — listen for announcements)
  • Patreon campaign :  tip the storyteller, on a recurring monthly basis, and encourage me to continue doing this — at the lowest tier, $1/month, you can download the individual story chapters (some free samples are available here)
