The Winds Of Gath by aegiandyad The Winds Of Gath by aegiandyad
The Dumarest Saga [link] is one of the least known and longest running SF pulp fiction franchises since Edgar Rice Burroughs' 'Tarzan Of The Apes'. It's an honest to God by-the-numbers formulaic pulp adventure series in which Dumarest always finds himself on a strange planet which hosts some great treasure or attraction, usually guarded by a very dangerous hazard or monster. There is nearly always a knife fight and less than a third of the way into the series our hero steals something from a Cyclan research lab which puts the Cyclan, a ruling clique of emotionless super brains who acts as 'advisors' to planetary governments, firmly on his trail and in hot pursuit of their stolen secret, the 'affinity twin', which is a method of controlling the mind and actions of another being by telepathic means.

this is all dreadfull schlock, of course, but quite enjoyable for the thirty odd novels Tubb eventually produced. The Winds Of Gath was the first and takes place of a planet where the main toruist attraction is the epopnymous winds, said to be capable of driving an unprotected listener mad with the fury and the illusory sounds and voices they evoke from the tortured Gath landscape.
