Rebels Of The Red Planet by Charles L. FontenayLooking for old-fashioned pulpy goodness? Have a look, and a listen to the first chapter |MP3| of the newest SFFaudio Challenger’s podcast:

Rebels Of The Red Planet
By Charles L. Fontenay

The reader is Paul W. Campbell (of the “Cossmass” audio drama series Estalvin’s Legacy).

Rebels Of The Red Planet was first published in 1961 by Ace books. Fontenay was a WWII vet, who was “born in Brazil of a father who was by birth English and by parentage German and French, and of a mother who was by birth American and by parentage American and Scottish.” This mixed background caused him difficulty as he went from enlisted soldier to officer during the war. It seems that the security clearances for his secret work required clear citizenship. When not fighting wars or writing SF Fontenay was a newspaper man.

Here’s the blurb on Rebels Of The Red Planet:

Dark Kensington had been dead for twenty-five years. It was a fact; everyone knew it. Then suddenly he reappeared, youthful, brilliant, ready to take over the Phoenix, the rebel group that worked to overthrow the tyranny that gripped the settlers on Mars.
