The Outlaws of Mars (Trade Paperback)

That's Racist!

... Illustration by Brandon Kitkouski ... That's Racist! Tuesday, February 10, 2009At Planet Stories, we're all about recovering cherished pieces of SF's past; treasures that have fallen between the cracks and been forgotten by modern readers, despite their merit and importance to the genre. But one of the problems with history is that it happened in the past... and the past is rarely clean. In order to unearth the gems, you have to dig up some serious dirt. So let's get messy. ... Let's talk...

Lansdale on Kline

... Illustration by Brandon Kitkouski ... Lansdale on Kline ... Tuesday, February 3, 2009One of the greatest strengths of the Planet Stories book line is that, in addition to republishing SF classics by some brilliant and historically significant authors, we have the chance to get other amazing authors to introduce them. People like F. Paul Wilson, George Lucas, C. J. Cherryh, Ben Bova, Samuel R. Delany—it never fails to blow my mind every time I see their names in my email inbox....

O.A.K. for the win!

... O.A.K. for the win! Tuesday, January 27, 2009It's teaser time! Otis Adelbert Kline, the man who brought you so much sword-swinging, dalf-fighting, empire-overthrowing Martian action in The Swordsman of Mars, is back again with all that and more in The Outlaws of Mars! Scroll down to take a peek at the action that's in store: She screamed and shrank back from him, evidently rooted to the spot with terror. ... Scarcely had he regained his balance, when Jerry's attention was attracted by a...

Kline is Back!

... Kline is Back! Tuesday, January 13, 2009One of Erik's first pulp discoveries when he started researching books for Planet Stories was a man named Otis Adelbert Kline, a former giant of the sword-and-planet genre who is remembered today primarily as the literary agent for Conan-creator Robert E. Howard. From the very beginning, Kline symbolized everything Erik wanted in a Planet Stories book—sword-swinging adventure on other worlds with strange creatures, bizarre cultures,...

The Dueling Writers of Mars!

... The Dueling Writers of Mars! Tuesday, November 4, 2008The first manuscript I had an opportunity to read after being welcomed aboard the Planet Stories staff was Otis Adelbert Kline's The Swordsman of Mars. As a lifelong Edgar Rice Burroughs enthusiast I had, of course, heard about Kline and the long-standing notion among Burroughs's readers that the two men, Kline and Burroughs, considered themselves bitter rivals. Kline's Venus series is generally recognized as having been penned in the...

The Swordsman of Mars: The Media Takes Notice

... The Swordsman of Mars: The Media Takes Notice Tuesday, October 14, 2008Otis Adelbert Kline was one of the first forgotten pulpsters we targeted a few years ago when Pierce Watters and I started talking about the classic SF line that would become Paizo's Planet Stories imprint. We originally wanted to do his first sword and planet serial, Planet of Peril, a yarn featuring an Earthman's adventures on Venus published a few years after Edgar Rice Burroughs invented the sub–genre with...

Two Swordsmen of Mars!

... Two Swordsmen of Mars! Saturday, September 20, 2008While pulp science-fiction magazines had entered a sort of digest-sized hibernation by the early 1960s, the paperback book phenomenon was hitting with full force, exposing readers to a new generation of writers while bringing many of the old pulp classics of the past into book form for the very first time. The celebrated Ace Doubles of the era presented many of the books we've already published in our Planet Stories classic fantasy line,...

Swamp Fight!

... Swamp Fight! Tuesday, August 26, 2008Last time I discussed how Otis Adelbert Kline, author of The Swordsman of Mars, ties into the overall idea of Planet Stories—a forgotten master in the Edgar Rice Burroughs tradition, who set precedents both through his own work and as a member of the Weird Tales editorial staff (not to mention as the literary agent for Conan creator Robert E. Howard). This week, however, I'd like to focus the spotlight on the one reason for republishing The...

One of a Kline

... One of a Kline Tuesday, August 12, 2008Otis Adelbert Kline, author of The Swordsman of Mars, is probably the author with the least name recognition on our current schedule. ... And that's on purpose. You see, once upon a time, before we realized that we could actually get folks like Michael Moorcock, Piers Anthony, and Robert E. Howard, we set our sights on trying to bring back, not just the best authors of the genre, but the best forgotten authors. Yet once we opened our doors, we...

Almuric (Trade Paperback)

Conan in Space!

... Conan in Space! Tuesday, February 19, 2008Okay, I lied. Robert E. Howard's Almuric, the latest release from Planet Stories, isn't actually a Conan novel. But it sure feels like one. No, as a piece of literary history, Almuric is actually far more fascinating. Best-known as the creator of Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard was one of the most distinctive and well-regarded voices of the pulp era. His brutal, might-make-right take on fantasy inspired generations of books, films, and...
