Forgotten Books: STERANKO's Skaith Covers


I'm pretty sure Leigh Brackett's Eric John Stark books have not been forgotten. They're still in print, and pretty easy to find. But these Steranko cover editions from 1974 aren't seen much anymore.

Near as I can tell, Stark first appeared in a series of novellas in the pulp Planet Stories beginning in 1949. This 1974-1976 trilogy from Ballantine was a reintroduction of the character, leaning more toward fantasy than the earlier space operas. Geez, maybe I should read them one of these days.

These covers are knock-outs. And fine fine books as well. Tanks for running them.

Ed Gorman said...

Or as we say on earth--Thanks for running them. I gave up saying "Tanks" when they quit running Joe Palooka.

These three compose on of my favorite SF-F trilogies, I really like them, have read the set twice. I don't have these, I have the SF Book Club omnibus (not nearly as nice a cover) but it suffices. I particularly like the way Brackett handles the psi link between the character and the lead character. Plus, Skaith is an interesting planet. I sure wish there had been more of these written!

I actually have the books with these covers on them. Very cool.

Nice covers for sure.

You can't go wrong with Leigh Brackett and Jim Steranko! Wonderful books!

Um, I meant to say "I particularly like the way Brackett handles the psi link between the large sentient cats and the lead character." Duh.
