German map depicts the Mars of Leigh Brackett

The German website has about a hundred cool maps based on various books, including one depicting the Mars of science fiction & fantasy author Leigh Brackett’s classic novel Das Erbe der Marsgötter (The Sword of Rhiannon, 1953). I can’t read German, but I recognize several of the sites on the map: Jekkara, Valkis, Barrakesch, Sark and Khondor. Presumably, “Rhiannons Grab,” in the right hand corner of the map, marks the location of the Tomb of Rhiannon!
