Disney’s John Carter is a story written in 1912 by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It was his first novel, originally titled, “A Princess of Mars.” I can’t say I’ve ever read Burroughs, but you and I have seen his strong influence at the movies. Have you ever watched a science fiction movie showcasing another planet, another world, aliens, Martian creatures, futuristic societies, incredible flying contraptions and the never-ending battle between good and evil? Then you’ve seen Burrough’s 100 year-old influence in action.
