Seller does not offer returns. Brackett's professional illustrators have universally drawn Stark as light-skinned, even sometimes blond.
The artists' choice to ignore Brackett's written description and substitute a generic light-skinned blond pulp hero, even as late as , may reflect prejudice against dark-skinned people. The effect of these misleading illustrations has been such that Stark is never remembered or referred to by critics as a black-skinned character, though he is clearly described as such in the stories. While Stark is described many times as having very dark skin, he appears to be of Caucasian rather than African descent; Brackett repeatedly tells her readers that Stark's unusual coloring is due to prolonged exposure to extreme sunlight while growing up on the planet Mercury.
Brackett openly created Stark as a pastiche of Edgar Rice Burroughs ' popular John Carter of Mars and Tarzan characters, and Stark's sun-blackened skin is the Mercurian version of Tarzan's sun-bronzed skin.
Stark first appeared in a group of novellas published in the pulp magazine Planet Stories. The expanded versions were first published in as an Ace Double paperback, and again in under the title Eric John Stark: Outlaw of Mars. The internal chronology of the stories is different from the publishing order; in "Queen of the Martian Catacombs" Stark is on Mars, having fled capture on Venus; "Black Amazon of Mars" takes place soon after, but in an unexplored and barbaric area close to the north pole of Mars; and in "Enchantress of Venus", Stark has returned from Mars to Venus to look for a missing friend.
The two expanded novels have inconsistencies with their novella originals. The Secret of Sinharat is almost identical with "Queen of the Martian Catacombs" up to the point at which Stark arrives at Sinharat, but a crucial plot point is revealed earlier in the novella, and further developments diverge from while occasionally overlapping the storyline of "Catacombs".
These stories are science fantasies set on a distant but primitive extrasolar planet , since Stark's original Solar System venue had become unacceptable to publishers. As a result, although the character's personality and origins are retained, there are few other links between the Skaith novels and the earlier Stark novellas. A final story, Stark and the Star Kings , places Stark into the world of her husband Edmond Hamilton 's Star Kings series, making it a rare collaboration between the two.
