"The Stronger" ~ 1930's story by Frederic Arnold Kummer Jr. about a Saturnian bully on Mars
Thanks to another generous fan of old pulp magazines at the Internet Archive, you can read or download “The Stronger,” a sci-fi novelette of interplanetary hijackers penned by Frederic Arnold Kummer Jr. and illustrated by artist Jack Binder, as it was originally published in the April-May 1939 issue of Dynamic Science Stories magazine.
“Instead of a space-trip from Venus to Earth, Jim Weston found himself a shanghaied member of a slave-crew, Mars-bound on Saturnian Slane's rocket ship. And when they crashed on the red desert of Mars, this Earthman showed a Saturnian bully that on any planet its, guts, not size, that makes the man!”
