Mars’ Earth-born Emperor battles for survival! Mars is at peace for the first time in generations but its old warlord is still alive and a hidden race of Martians makes itself known, adding to the complexity of the situation threatening that peace. In the grand tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Red Men of Mars is the third installment in the Clayton Drew quartet.
ALIEN DUST relates the first thirty-five years of the colonization of Mars. It is a poignant story of Man against Nature. No individual hero or heroine marches steadily through its pages. There is no triumphal ending-only faint hope. Instead, against a background of the shifting red sands of a planet unfit for human habitation, emerges the grim picture of pioneer men and women pitting their courage, wits and even lives against the biggest enemy in the Solar System-an alien planet. Rich and warm in human emotion, ALIEN DUST is one of those rare science fiction stories which presents Man in his true perspective-as the intruder.
