As a long time fan of Frazetta, I have to say that the cover Rocks! Although the title is mostly a misnomer, I enjoyed every story. Swordsman of Lost Terra by Poul Anderson is probably my favorite with it's post apocalyptic setting. People of the Crater by Andre Norton is a lost world story. Not my favorite Norton, but I would like to continue the story in Garan the Eternal. The Moon that Vanished by Leigh Brackett was a cool flight across Venus. A Vision of Venus by Otis Adelbert Kline was condensed fluff. And finally, Kaldar, World of Antares by Edmond Hamilton was the only Sword and Planet story in this collection. I wondered how much of an influence Hamilton might have been on Bulmer's Dray Prescott series because of the title and subject of the story. I would also like to continue this adventure in Kaldar, World of Antares.
Overall, a light and fun read. Recommended!
