THE SAGA OF A CLASSIC SF HEROINE CONCLUDES! Gerry Carlyle, the Interplanetary Huntress, who brought 'em back alive from the jungles of Mars, Venus, and the moons of Jupiter in the golden days of the science fiction pulps, returns for a final outing, up against the most dangerous challenge of in the nine planets! When the sexist Professor Erasmus Kurtt insultingly challenges her to prove who is the "better man" in a race to Saturn and back to capture the planet's deadliest lifeform, with whoever returns to Earth with it first the winner, Gerry's blood boils – and its off for Saturn, with her fiancee, Tommy Strike, at the helm of her atom-powered rocketship, The Ark. But, Erasmus Kurtt is no professor, but a ruthless-schemer with a secret plan of his own. Soon, the Interplanetary Huntress soon finds herself marooned on Saturn, her ship sabotaged, while she must lead her crew into barehanded battle against the sharp-clawed, ten-foot Dermaphos, the eight-legged Kite, and the superdeadly Gora. Treachery, secrets, a friendly alien race, and a last minute battle against monsters that tests Gerry Carlyle's knowledge and skills to the limit show why Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine said, ""This will take you back to the good old days of S-F ...The heyday of Gerry Carlyle, the fabulously gorgeous interplanetary hunter ... sizzling stuff ... surprisingly readable. If you like a huge collection of assorted BEMs and well-thought-out gimmicks in tight situations, you will assuredly go for this." Out-of-print for over fifty years The Interplanetary Huntress' Last Case is the third and final volume in this republication of the adventures of the fabulous Gerry Carlyle; an article by Arthur K. Barnes' on "Better Characterization in Science Fiction"; and the 1956 first edition illustrations.
