Some of the stories are, at least.
;)
john Carter is a complicated one.
when the Princess of Mars became Public Domain, the ERB estate went and Trademarked Barsoom, John Carter, Dejah Thoris and its various concepts (they did the same with Tarzan) .
However that can’t be done under US law, so Barsoom is public domain in the US but is protected Trademark internationally.

The next stage will be to go through each and justify their inclusion in a D&D book:

- what archetype do they fill? What can they do (in D&D terms) that others can’t? Are they the best archer, the strongest guy, the fastest, the one that shoots lightning bolts?

One thought:

If you and-or others end up thinking of more that are worthy of inclusion, one way to break the list down might be to determine which are usually seen as deities (e.g. Athena, Lugh) and which are usually seen as more mortal (Sherlock Holmes, Nessie).

Then decide which group you want to concentrate on. Were it me, I'd look to excluding deities; mostly because they've been done before and many of the rest have not - or not well. :)
