"The Master Mind of Mars " is an Edgar Rice Burroughs science fantasy novel, the sixth of his famous "Barsoom " series. Burroughs ' working titles for the novel were "A Weird Adventure on Mars " and "Vad Varo of Barsoom ". It was first published in the magazine "Amazing Stories Annual " vol. 1, July 15, 1927. The first book edition was published by A. C. McClurg in March, 1928. Burroughs had been unable to place the novel in his standard, higher-paying markets like the Munsey magazines and the Street & amp; Smith line. Some critics have speculated the publishers were put off by its satirical treatment of religious fundamentalists. He eventually sold it to publisher Hugo Gernsback for $1,250 & mdash;only a third of the rate paid by magazines like "Argosy All-Story ", where the previous book in the series had first appeared. Gernsback chose the novel 's final title and made it the cover feature in his newest magazine.
