John Carter of Mars

Like virtually everybody else, I haven’t seen the mega-budget Disney film John Carter. 

Unlike most, though, I plan to see it — largely because my youngest son, a serious student of film and of science fiction, fantasy, and horror literature, keeps urging me to do so.

Here’s a piece that he wrote for the Deseret News about the “John Carter of Mars” stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

“Meet the ‘world’s first’ gay married ‘throuple’”
“Exploring complexities in the English language of the Book of Mormon”
Assyrian Christians, the latest captives of the “Islamic State”
How long must we wait?
