To coincide with their upcoming movie, Disney has collected all of Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars books in three volumes of Barsoomian adventure. The whippersnappers of today will have to do without the wonderful old Roy G. Krenkel and Frank Frazetta illustrations that I remember, but these look like handsome editions anyway.
Volume 1: A Princess of Mars; Gods of Mars; Warlord of Mars
Volume 2: Thuvia, Maid of Mars; The Chessmen of Mars; The Master Mind of Mars; A Fighting Man of Mars
Volume 3: Swords of Mars; Synthetic Men of Mars; Llana of Gathol; John Carter of Mars
Now everybody can count the number of times that John Carter refers to himself as "The greatest swordsman on two planets"! Not suitable for drinking games.
They’re out in paperback and for the Kindle.

Do you have volume 2 and volume 3 reversed? The books in volume 3 come before the ones in volume 2.
Ack! You’re right. Amazon brought them up in the wrong order – I remember I was surprised that “Thuvia” came that late :). Fixing now…
You need to warn your readers that for unaccountable reasons Disney has left out all the fictional prologues, which are part of the stories.
