Fun Burroughs adventure. You like his stories or you don't. This is the usual adventure involving a visitor to an unusual world. He has done it many times before. This is a pretty good example of the 1930s SF adventure. ( )

Got really bored really quickly. Moving on. Voting period is almost over.

Spoilery thoughts on all the 1939 Retro-Hugo nominated novels here:

Another of the 1939 Retro-Hugo nominees, and the only one of which I had not heard before the nominations came through. It's pretty rubbish, really. There is an interesting evil Venusian city whose ideology is clearly modelled on the Nazis, but essentially this is a tale of Ruritanian conflicts which happen to be on Venus, involving our hero as the intended husband of a beautiful political heiress. There's also a desperate attempt to do a gynocracy which is fortunately abandoned after a chapter or two. ( )

Classic sword and scifi. This continues the story of Carson Napier, human adventurer who finds himself on the jungle planet of Venus. Like John Carter, he falls in love with a native woman (who amazingly enough is human) and must rescue her, and in this case, her father, from any number of difficult circumstances, while winning over his prospective father in law at the same time.
