This is not a complete Brackett, or even a complete Brackett SF. For complete I recommend the Heffner hardcovers. But if you can't afford those, want to sample first or just need great old-time SF to give to a friend, Gollancz has put together a very nice collection here, from the very early "Sorcerer of Rhiannon" to "Road to Sinharat" which was nearly her last trip to Mars. If you're looking for her best-known novels, note they're all here in the shorter magazine novella versions--SWORD OF RHIANON as "Sea Kings of Mars" SECRET OF SINHARAT as "Queen of the Martian Catacombs" and PEOPLE OF THE TALISMAN as "Black Amazon of Mars." In addition to those, "Lorelei of the Red Mist" with Ray Bradbury deserves special mention. Add in Brackett's non-fiction "Letting My Imagination Go" an afterward by Stephen Jones, a map of Brackett's Mars and the best cover painting I've ever seen for any Brackett story or collection, and you've got quite a collection. Buy two and give one to a friend. I did.
