BBC Radio 7 Broadcasts Leigh Brackett’s “The Last Days of Shandakor

BBC Radio 7 recently broadcast a reading of “The Last Days of Shandakor” (1952), a novelette by Leigh Brackett. Both Episode 1 (30 minutes) and Episode 2 (30 minutes) are archived and will be accessible for the next few days through BBC 7’s "Listen Again" feature.

“An epic space adventure written in which Mars is portrayed as a dying planet where desperate Earthmen compete with the last Martians and other alien races for lost knowledge and hidden power," Brackett's "The Last Days of Shandakor" was originally published in the April 1952 issue of Startling Stories magazine.
