Publisher's Summary

"Grimly Eric John Stark slogged toward that ancient Martian city.´With every step he cursed the talisman of Ban Cruach that flamed in his blood-stained belt. Behind him screamed the hordes of Ciaran, hungering for that magic jewel. Ahead lay the dread abode of the Ice Creatures. At his side stalked the whispering spectre of Ban Cruach, urging him on to a battle Stark knew he must lose!"...

Welcome to the sci-fi world of Leigh Douglass Brackett and U.S. pulp fiction from the late 1950's at its finest. In this story, our hero Eric John Stark certainly has his work cut out for him, trying to save a friend as well as having to accept a dangerous mission involving bringing back a precious, stolen item to its original home.

Classic Leigh Brackett Space Opera

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, especially if they are interested in Appendix N literature

Who was your favorite character and why?

The shining ones - creepy! Or perhaps the eponymous Black Amazon . . .

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Edward Miller?

Almost anyone else - I was not a fan of the narration!

Could you see Black Amazon of Mars being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Oh yes - but I have no idea who should be cast!

terrible narration

the worst narration for an audiobook I have ever heard far too slow and jowly, he is an unbelievably monotone cross between Norm from cheers and Emo Philips
