Ack, just realized I totally missed yesterday’s Pick; will make it up by doing a double Pick today (one now, one a bit later on). Let’s continue with Of Swords and Lasers Week with this gem from the Spirit of the Century Fate series from Black Hat – Khan of Mars. Spinning off from the Dinocalypse series for SotC, this adventure takes the pulp heroes to the Red Planet and thrusts them into the very heart of politics and adventure that only Mars can provide.
LOST ON THE RED PLANET!
When erudite ape Professor Khan and rough-and-tumble cowboy Bulls-Eye Gutierrez are zapped away on a one-way trip to Mars, they are thrown into a world in chaos. Under the malevolent gaze of the Weather Witch, Princess Cyclone, our heroes face the intrigue and war raging across an alien world. Will they survive long enough for the other Centurions to build a way back home, or will they perish upon the shifting sands of the Red Planet, never to be seen again?
A spin-off adventure from the Dinocalypse Trilogy!
“Who would have thought a four hundred pound gorilla could be so agile? Khan of Mars moves with the speed and whiplash reverses of a hunting hawk, yet packs the punch of a rampaging Yeti. Engaging characters, endless invention, and a breakneck plot that never lets you catch your breath—Stephen Blackmoore must have that ape by the short hairs to make him hop around like that.” — Nathan Long, author of Jane Carver of Waar
