Protecting Project Pulp 92: Leigh Brackett

Main Fiction: “Black Amazon of Mars” (part 2 of 3) by Leigh Brackett, first published in Planet Stories, March 1951.

Narrator: Fred Himebaugh.

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!

  1. I was ecstatic when I heard you were airing this story. A picture of the Black Amazon of Mars cover of Planet Stories in a science fiction history book is what sparked my love and fascination with sci-fi pulp magazines. Fred’s reading is excellent (as always!) Thank you!
