Hi-fi sci-fi: don't miss the rest of the Skylark series.
©1949 E. E. "Doc" Smith; (P)2007 Books in Motion
Enjoying all over again a series of books I had read in my youth. My Dad passed his E. E. Doc Smith on to my brother and me and we read them and just ate them up. Smith introduced me to Sci-Fi and the love has lasted a lifetime. I loved the Skylark series because it fired my imagination and dreams. Yes, man would some day venture into space as the explorers man is.
Seaton was amazing, but managed to stay down to earth. Duquesne grew enormously through the books, but then stayed true to his character in the end. Do tigers really change their stripes?
I loved seeing the softer side of Duquesne come out. His scenes with the aliens for "DNA" preservation was very interesting.
The enemy became the friend/ally to overcome adversity.
Loved the reader and the books. I think Doc Smith was really a romantic at heart.
