Print Edition

This title is also available in print in paperback.

[NOTE: The ebook edition is currently a digital replica edition -- a PDF of the scanned page images of the print book -- and not an epub/mobi type of typical ebook file. We are working on a typical epub/mobi type of ebook edition, but this is a large, complex book to convert from paper, so this digital replica / PDF approach is our first step, to get it out there more rapidly. The underlying/invisible PDF text is searchable, but still contains many scanning errors. You can read the page images clearly, just as if you were looking at a physical copy of the book. We want to be clear that it's a PDF for the time being. You will be able to download an epub/mobi file when we have it ready. This is in addition to the existing paperback edition, which heretofore was the only format available.]

This is the definitive concordance to the epic "Lensman" and "Skylark" novels with which the late "Doc" Smith enthralled science fiction readers for so many years. Edward E. Smith stood unchallenged as the inventor and foremost author of science fiction interstellar stories on the grand scale. He was known as the man who opened the Galaxy to science fiction. He wrote The Skylark of Space in 1920, but the vastness of its concepts was so far in advance of the rudimentary science fiction of the time that it was not sold until 1927, to the newly founded Amazing Stories.

This comprehensive concordance has entries for characters, places, events, and many other topics in the "Lensman" and "Skylark" novels. The entries range from only a few words for such minor subjects as "X-plosive" to almost six pages for "Kinnison, Kimball." Both scholarly and sprightly, it is intended for those with nostalgic affection for the "space opera" days of science fiction's early youth when intergalactic adventure was brand new. The book includes a bibliography by Al Lewis and black-and-white illustrations by Bjo.
