The Venus series, describing the adventures of scientist/adventurer Carson Napier when he crash lands on Venus, consists of four books: Pirates of Venus, Lost on Venus, Carson of Venus, and Escape on Venus. The novel, which was written two years before the outbreak of World War II, satirizes Nazi Germany by including a fascist political faction called the "Zani". There is also a character named "Muso" as a reference to Benito Mussolini. Carson of Venus was nominated for a Retro Hugo Award for best science fiction novel of 1939. - wiki.
