Lanikai is a district, a beach, a Post Office, and a grocery store. It lies on the windward shore of the Island of Oahu. It is a long way from Mars. Its waters are blue and beautiful and calm inside its coral reef, and the trade wind sighing through the fronds of its coconut palms at night might be the murmuring voices of the ghosts of the kings and chieftains who fished in its still waters long before the sea captains brought strange diseases or the missionaries brought mother-hubbards.

This time we did not worry about the title of the book, and Llana herself does not even appear in my painting. I realized that after doing nine covers I still ahd not shown one of the unique Barsoomian airships so commonly featured throughout the series. To tell the truth, I felt there was little point in doing so, since Robert Abbett had done such a great job visualizing them on the covers he painted for the books in the 's. Nevertheless, this scene involved an airship and also conveyed the feeling of the book very well.
