The AIRLORDS of HAN appeared in the May 1962 issue of Amazing Stories Fact and Science Fiction.

The AIRLORDS of HAN tells how the American survivors of the Han invasion rise up in a second War of Independence. Buck Rogers, a man from the Twentieth Century, helps the war with military knowledge lost in the five hundred years that past while he was in suspended animation.

The Han controlled the sky with powerful floating cities, disintegrator and repeller ray equipped airships, and communication technology. The new Twenty-fifth Century American technology and the fighting methods brought by Rogers wrestle control of the air from the Han but the fighting has just begun as the Han launch counter strikes at the Americans.

'The Airlords of Han' has even more technical and detailed information passages than the original story. This distracts from the narration but adds a richness of speculation that is frequently lost in modern writing styles. It also corrects some weaknesses found in the first tale. The story brings a greater understanding of the later writing that borrows from 'Buck Rogers.' Even with the passage of 75 years, there is a freshness and spark to the dated storytelling. T'he Airlords of Han' is a must read for those interested in the roots of modern genre writing and is just plain fun for everyone else.

S.A. Gorden, Reviewer

Philip Francis Nowlan (1888 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – February 1, 1940 in Philadelphia) was an American science fiction author.

After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania he worked as a newspaper columnist. He married, moved to the Philadelphia suburb of Bala Cynwyd and created and wrote the Buck Rogers comic strip, illustrated by Dick Calkins. The character Buck Rogers first appeared in Nowlan's 1928 novella Armageddon 2419 A.D. as Anthony Rogers. The comic strip ran for over forty years and spun off a radio series, a 1939 movie serial, and two television series. Nowlan also wrote several other novellas for the science fiction magazines as well as the posthumously published mystery, The Girl from Nowhere. Philip Francis Nowlan was married to Theresa Junker. They had ten children: Philip, Mary, Helen, Louise, Theresa, Mike, Larry, Pat, John, and Joe. ---From Wikipedia
