Kane Of Old Mars is an omnibused trilogy of Edgar Rice Burroughs pastiches featuring Michael Kane, and is a revised retitling of an earlier omnibus, Warrior Of Mars (1981) (not to be confused with the 1965 novel [part of the same trilogy], Warriors Of Mars). The American and British editions used differing variant titles for their (same) contents.
