The Coming Of The Terrans by Leigh Brackett

Ace G-669, 1st printing

When Earthmen came to Mars, they found a world of dead sea0bottoms, lost civilizations, and secretive barbarian tribes who resented their intrusion on this ancient planet and sneered at the gleaming products of Terrestrial science. The Earthmen in turn looked down upon the crumbling Martian culture, laughed at the stories of invincible gods and magic still lingering in forbidden cities like Valkis, Jekkara, Barrakesh…

But the dangers were real – and only a few renegade Earth-born adventurers who had adopted the Martian way of life could understand the planet-wide disaster that was building up.

A paperback original first edition anthology. Part of Brackett’s Mars series.
