Format: Paperback
I read this years ago when it came out, so my review is of course slightly based on the reaction of a 13 or 14 year old boy and how memory may have altered that reaction in the intervening decades. That said, I remember this as a fun read, grand adventure in the Edgar Rice Burroughs tradition of pulp magazine fiction. I don't remember many details, other than that the protagonist ends up on a Ganymede that is very similar to the Barsoom of Burroughs, where he has adventures of the type some call "sword and planet." I vividly remember how very very disappointed I was when the series stopped after the 2nd volume, "Pursuit on Ganymede" was published.
Pretty obviously a homage to Burroughs, and this was also written about the time that the paperback market was being flooded with any number of Burroughs and Robert E. Howard pastiches. That being said, I remember enjoying it more than some of the other similar books that were coming out at the time, so I'm giving it 3.5 stars and am strongly considering going out and buying a used copy just to see how it holds up.
Probably recommended more to the Edgar Rice Burroughs fans than to the present day Michael Resnick fans (unless you're a completist, like I tend to be) since his more modern writing has matured and has a different slant than this. Still, if you are a Resnick fan (as I still am) and want to see some of his early homage work you might enjoy this. As I said before, it was grand fun.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
An astronaut is stranded on Ganymede, and discovers that it is a place of adventure. Nothing too original here, just the ususal: the most beautiful princess on the planet (if not the solar system) falls in love with the astronaut, but instead of telling him of here love, she pretends to hate him instead. Soon, she is kidnapped by a king of a rival kingdom, and the hero goes to save her. Wild coincidences abound throughout the story, but that is pretty standard for these types of novels. The hero's personality changes whenever convenient to the plot, and of course he is the best swordsman ever seen.
This was one of Resnick's first novels, and it certainly looks like a beginner's book (He is so embarrassed about the series, that he has forbidden the two novels from ever being re-printed during his lifetime). Much inferior to the Barsoom books of which they are so similar on the surface.
