Has anyone read any Leigh Brackett books?

I was given Sword of Rhiannon a while back and thought it was fantastic.

I read The Long Tomorrow and I thought it was overrated. Mostly it was about

a kid who wants to expand his horizons in a society that's static and backward. But he never really gets to do that. The end. Also scary scary nuclear power plants.
It's supposed to be one of the best sci fi books of the 1950s but others are better. I should check out Sword of Rhiannon sometime.

I started reading another called 'The Big Jump' but haven't really got into it yet. I recommend 'Sword of Rhiannon' though. Also I never knew Leigh Brackett was a woman. Only because a woman writing sci-fi back in the 50's seems unheard of. She also screen wrote 'The Empire Strikes Back' too, crazy. I might try and get a few others, like all stories they can be hit and miss.
