Publisher's Summary

There is a dark power in the galaxy working against the rise of civilisation, and the First Lensman is leading the way in the fight against chaos. By founding the Galactic Patrol, the Lensmen seek to unite the civilised beings of the galaxy and weld a star fleet of such stupendous power that the forces of darkness and chaos will be defeated.

In this sequel to Triplanetary, E.E. Smith continues the epic galaxy-spanning saga and artfully combines political intrigue with mighty space battles and super science.

Get the other version

I got this version instead of the one read by Reed McColm and unfortunately, the reading is pretty dire. It is available with Reed as the author and I would suggest that version. As for the story, it’s old fashioned space opera (it was first published in 1950), so be prepared for that. If you are ok with that, this is a fun romp.
