Eric John Stark, Outlaw of Mars, travels beyond the solar system for exciting adventures on the planet of Skaith, a lawless sphere at the edge of the known universe. Raised as a savage on the hostile planet of Mercury and honed into a fearless warrior in the low canals of the Red Planet, Stark is one of science fiction's greatest adventurers and is Leigh Brackett's most famous character. In The Ginger Star, Simon Ashton, Stark's foster father, has been kidnapped by the Lords Protector, and only Stark can rescue him!
Leigh Brackett co-wrote Empire Strikes Back and this book was just as good. A great story that highlights the many differing priorities of the races of a dying planet. Character development is quite good and the hero is unique and epic. I will DEFINITELY be continuing the series!!
I just finished some other similar books by other authors and was underwhelmed. Happy to have found this one!! Bravo to the author!!
