    Summary

    “You are a knight, yes?”

    “Not a very noble one,” he answered me, “but yes.”

    He was an older man, having lost most of his hair. Despite his words he took his knightly honor very seriously and wondered how he might help me even as he feared my obvious rage.

    “I think otherwise.” I opened my cloak. “I am a woman. I have breasts.”

    “And very fine ones they are,” he agreed. “But what does that have to do with me?”

    “A knight must help a woman in need,” I said, repeating Ned Dayne’s rather childish description of knightly duties. “And I have a great need. Those raiders have taken my sister to that ship right there. I need you to take me there in your little boat, so that I may kill them and bring my sister back.”

    “Kill which ones?”

    “All of them.”

    John Carter and Dejah Thoris of the Burroughs novels are mis-directed to the world of Game of Thrones, fulfilling two separate prophecies. Carter is a Confederate officer; his ideas might be considered unenlightened. Dejah is very good at killing people, but she feels bad about it.

    Summary

    This is an experiment/practice for me as far as writing longer works goes as well as an attempt to bring some "finality" to the Barsoom mythos, which was left open-ended book to book as far as I'm aware. I think it's interesting that genre authors would write series(s) back in the day without ever once thinking that the final book was a "capstone" in any sense, so I'm writing my own ending to the Barsoom series with a sense of finality that ERB (or any writer of the time) never would have given it.

    Summary

    The sun crested the distant cliffs across the vast expanse of sand and dirt in front of them, and in a blink the purple of the Barsoomian night was chased away by brilliant daggers of sunlight. Dejah whooped and shouted “It is three days’ ride— follow me!”

    John Carter does not know much about Barsoom, Tharks, Helium or the struggles of red men. During the three days' ride to the river Iss, and then Helium, he learns.

    Or: John Carter's Crash Course in Socio-Politic Relations Between Barsoom's Major Sentient Races: A Gonzo Ethnography.

    Summary

    "I believe that this was written by you," my sister of the heart said. "There are too many indicators of your authorship."

    "How can you say that?" I countered. "It is wretched prose, filled with references to inter-species sex and to extreme violence. It is a tale told by an idiot."

    "You have attempted to disguise your authorship by purposefully employing weak sentence structures, unbelievable dialog and overuse of tired tropes."

    "I am a princess, and a scientist. I would not waste my valuable time or my talents on this so-called 'fan fiction'."

    "There are 731 references to breasts, and 112 references to receiving orgasm," Thuvia pursued her point. "Your obsessions with these topics are well known."

    ---

    In which Thuvia of Ptarth discovers an embarrassing secret.

    Summary

    I finished reading LXG Volume 6: The Tempest a few weeks ago, and I was immensely disappointed. The story was shit, the characters were flat, and the whole thing was just a real crappy way to end a saga.

    So, I have decided to write my own ending. With blackjack and hookers! In fact, forget the blackjack!

    Starting with the revelation of the Antichrist's identity, I'm putting my own spin on how LXG should have ended out, and hopefully do it with the same creative storytelling spirit that the series started out with.
