The Galactic Patrol’s Lensmen are the most feared peacekeepers in the Galaxy. The ‘Lens,’ a telepathic jewel matched to the ego of its wearer, is the ultimate weapon in the war against the merciless pirate Boskone and his forces of lawlessness. The only problem is the Galactic Patrol isn’t sure how to capitalize on the Lens’ incredible powers, but new graduate Kimball Kinnison is determined to learn. Taking command of the experimental fighting ship, the Brittania, Kinnison and his crew set off on a journey of harrowing adventures, coming face to face with deadly space creatures, and the evil pirate Helmuth…
who may be the dreaded Boskone himself. Read by Reed McColm. 9 CD’s 10 Hrs.
Triplanetary was first serialized in Amazing Stories in 1934 and it later on formed the first of the Lensman series, where it set the stage for what is one of the greatest space opera sagas ever written. This original publication brings us to a distant planet inhabited by a highly developed aquatic race called the Nevians. They have managed to harness the atomic power of iron and have an enormous need for the metal to generate energy, but their planet has virtually no iron reserves. They build a spaceship to venture into the universe and find iron. Eventually they discover that Earth has huge amounts of iron and the Nevians start to extract all the iron out of Pittsburgh with a special ray. This ray shoots into the city and immediately vaporizes and removes any iron from the buildings, machines, earth, and even from human blood. It is up to Conway Costigan, a mercilessly competent, two fisted whiz agent of the military Triplanetary Service, and his colleagues to save the planet.
In First Lensman, we find the benevolent super beings of Arisia ready to bestow the first ‘lens’ on a human being which, among other things, will give humans telepathic powers. The honor goes to Virgil Samms, who will ever after be known as the ‘First Lensman.’ But it’s a title that he’ll have to earn by establishing the Galactic Patrol, a group that is at once powerful and incorruptible, and will protect the universe from the evil and almost unstoppable Eddorians. If that weren’t tough enough, Samms must also dodge assassination attempts at home and help his second in command, Rod ‘The Rock’ Kinnison, win the presidency of North America. And that’s just the beginning of his troubles.
Space Duel to the Death. Somewhere among the galaxies was the stronghold of Boskone a network of brilliant interplanetary criminals whose mania for conquest threatened the future o all civilization. But Where? Boskanian bases dotted the universe shielded by gigantic thought screens that defied penetration. It was up to Lensman Kim Kinnison, using his fantastic mental powers, to infiltrate the Boskonian strongholds and learn the location of the enemy’s Grand Base and smash it forever! from book’s back cover
The Imperial Stars
Classic space opera adventure, Book 1 in the ‘Family D’Alembert’ series. The Empire of Earth, spanning more than a thousand solar systems, is threatened by a conspiracy from within. Now, with more than three quarters of the Galaxy ready to fall into enemy hands, the Empire is forced to call on its top secret weapon: the renowned Circus of the Galaxy featuring the d’Alembert family, a clan of circus performers with uncanny abilities. But even these super agents may not be in time to save the Empire.
The Clockwork Traitor
Classic space opera adventure, Book 3 in the ‘Family D’Alembert’ series. By law, Princess Edna, heir to the interstellar Empire of Earth, must marry a commoner. But as she travels through her domain, word comes of a mysterious threat to her succession. It’s up to Jules and Yvette d’Alembert and their family of circus performers, all agents of the Empire, to uncover this bizarre plot before it can wreak havoc for all of humanity.
First book of The Lord Tedric series of space operas, expanded by Eklund from the original story by E. E. Doc Smith which was first published in Universe Science Fiction in 1954: published here as a collaboration, though Gordon Eklund was not credited in the UK Allan Wingate edition the US edition also published earlier in 1978 was paperback only.
Spacehounds of Ipc
One of the most fascinating mysteries of the heavens is the comet. It goes through space, gets near enough to the earth to be seen, and then goes off and disappears in celestial distance. Often it has a hyperbolic orbit, which would make it impossible to come back. Yet it may return apparently contradicting the geometry of conic sections. This only goes to prove once more that it is risky to say anything is impossible…
A good many of us who are now certain beyond a doubt that space travel will forever remain in the realm of the impossible, probably would, if a rocket that were shot to the moon, for instance, did arrive, and perhaps return to give proof of its safe arrival on our satellite, accept the phenomenon in a perfectly blas , twentieth century manner. Dr. Smith, that phenomenal writer of classic scientific fiction, seems to have become so thoroughly convinced of the advent of interplanetary travel that it is difficult for the reader to feel, after finishing Spacehounds of Ipc, that travel in the great spaces is not already an established fact. Dr. Smith, as a professional chemist, is kept fairly busy. As a writer, he is satisfied with nothing less than perfection. For that reason, a masterpiece from his pen has become almost an annual event. We know you will like Spacehounds even better than the Skylark series.
Masters Of Space
Jarvis Hilton is in charge of a handpicked team of scientists and a navy warship on a deep space mission, dubbed Project Theta Orionis. On the outbound journey, automatic sensors drop their ship the Perseus into normal space for an encounter with a mysterious skeletal object. The encounter leaves them baffled, and leads them to a view an epic space battle. But strange as that is, it’s nowhere near as mysterious as finding a planet covered in radioactive fuel ore and populated with humanoid robots who have been expecting their arrival and greet them as returning masters…
The Galaxy Primes
They were four of the greatest minds in the Universe: Two men and two women, all Psionic Primes, lost in an experimental spaceship billions of parsecs from home. And as they mentally charted the cosmos to find their way back to Earth, their own loves and hates were as startling as the worlds they encountered…
Here is E. E. Smith’s classic science fiction novel one of the greatest space operas of all time!
