STARK – Man Without a Tribe Published
We have just published the Eric John Stark novels by Leigh Brackett. They are available HERE.
Eric John Stark was born on Mercury to miners who died in a cave-in. He was brought up by Mercurian aborigines and given the name N’Chaka, meaning “the man without a tribe”. Before Stark was fully grown, another group of human miners exterminated his tribe, captured Stark and imprisoned him in a cage. They would ultimately have killed him if he had not been rescued by the police official Simon Ashton, who raised Stark to adulthood. Stark becomes a wanderer, a warrior, a rebel, and ultimately a legend.
Queen of the Martian Catacombs was published in Planet Stories in the Summer, 1949 issue. This novel was expanded into the novel The Secret of Sinharat in 1964.
Enchantress of Venus was published in Planet Stories in the Fall, 1949 issue.
Black Amazon of Mars was published in Planet Stories in the March, 1951 issue. This novel was expanded into the novel People of the Talisman in 1964.
All three original novels were the cover stories on their respective issues.
