Format: Hardcover
Fun, exciting and marvelously imaginative, The Red World of Polaris will not fail to delight fans of pulpy Golden Age exploration and other campy Gernsback retronauts. If you liked Forbidden Planet (the movie) or John Carter of Mars, this will provide a new series of interplanetary adventures where the planets and their strange inhabitants are the protagonists and where the humans are just hapless victims. Apparently had a strong influence on HP Lovecraft, since this is the book from which he derived the Shoggoths. Too bad this collection is so short, but the full CAS collection from Night Shade Books should make up for it.

very little in the way of plot July 27 2005
By amster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found these stories interesting primarily because of the vivid descriptions of the worlds that Volmar and his crew encounter. Sadly, there is very little to the stories other than that. There is really not much contained in these stories in the way of plot or character development. All three stories employ the same formula; the crew is stranded or captured on an alien planet, they encounter nightmarish flora and fauna, and then they escape. I liked the stories for what they are, but if you're looking for stories that contain an actual point (other than to freak the reader out with weird descriptions), these are probably not for you.
