PLANETS OF ADVENTURE #5: The Man the Sun Gods Made & The Black Amazon of Mars

Two Novels of Supermen and Cosmic Peril from the Greatest of Space Opera Pulps!

From the famous Superman, Batman, and Justice League writer Gardner F. Fox comes a tale of an amazing superman—"The Man the Sun Gods Made". From the original magazine blurb: To the vassal remnants of Lyallar, this man was a God. They called him a god and worshipped him. He neither ate nor drank, nor breathed the wild free air, yet he was mighty beyond belief. To the Ardth hordes he was Tyr the Terrible. But grief bowed those superbly muscled shoulders, for he knew he was all too human.

Then Leigh Brackett's fictional superman, Eric John Stark, meets the most dangerous warrior on Mars—"The Black Amazon". Original magazine blurb: 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!
