    E.E. "Doc" Smith
    Edward Elmer Smith also E.E Smith, E.E Smith, Ph.D E.E Doc Smith, Doc Smith, Skylark Smith, or to his family Ted , was an American food engineer specializing in doughnut and pastry mixes and an early science fiction author, best known for the Lensman and Skylark series He is sometimes called the father of space opera.


    SHAZBOTother bitter, CLASSIC disappointment. I’m not sure who E.E. Smith was sleeping with or what incriminating photos of the publisher he had stashed away, but this book is a stool sample. It started as a wonderful buffet of big ideas and interesting concepts. However, once digested and squeezed through the pen of Mr. Smith, it became eminently flushable. From a historical perspective, this book has a strong pedigree as the Lensmen Saga is the series most often cited as paving the way for la [...]

    "In the not too distance future, while fleets of commercial space ships travel between the planets of numerous solar systems, a traveler named Virgil Samms visits the planet Arisia. There he becomes the first wearer of the Lens, the almost-living symbol of the forces of law and order. As the first Lensman, Samms helps to form the Galactic Patrol, a battalion of Lensmen who are larger than life heroes. These solders are the best of the best, with incredible skills, stealth, and drive. They are de [...]

    One can see the great influence that this work has had on TV science fiction and comic books like the 60's/present day version of "The Green Lantern," but I'm not sure why.Smith's writing is very stilted. It's worth it to muddle through this just to understand the scope of its influence, but I can't continue with this series. It's too dated and the writing is too poor.

    Title: First LensmanSeries: Lensman, Book 2Author: "Doc" E. E. SmithGenre: Science FictionSmith continues his epic Lensman series in First Lensman. The Arisians are continuing to monitor and influence the development of four different races in the galaxy, specifically interested in the human race from Tellus (or Earth). Where Triplanetary, the first book in the series, literally took the reader back to the very beginning of the conflict between the Eddorians and the Arisians, describing the init [...]

    Storyline: 1/5Characters: 1/5Writing Style: 2/5World: 1/5I read these 1950s pulp fiction classics more out of devotion to the genre than for the pleasure of the actual book. In most regards this typifies the space operas of the 1940s and early 50s: damsel, hero, and villain characters; choppy action sequences; and awful dialogue. In a couple of areas this is a vast improvement, however, over the Edgar Rice Burroughs pulp era. Smith spent a lot of his wordcount and effort on addressing potential [...]

    Classic space opera, and very possibly the canonical example of the genre, as massive fleets assemble to create and defend civilization, whilst a hero is elevated to god like powers and abilities, and a new force to save the universe if established. No, this is not star wars, its Lensmen! Sadly, however, it is lost in the campy and often misogynistic rhetoric of the age Dr Smith lived in. The sense of Flash Gordon-esc / dime store novels / serial radio programs from the first installment still r [...]

    The First LensmanClassic space opera. It is hard to rate a book that has had such an influence on everything that came after it - Dune, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Ender's Game to name a few - so that it doesn't seem original at all. It is often compared to Asimov's Foundation, but I found the Foundation trilogy much more compelling, with a much deeper plot line. The writing styles are similar, and both are examples of what I call "Grand Humanism" in science fiction (man conquers the galaxy, etc), [...]

    My expectations on sitting down to this book were not high. The previous Doc Smith book I'd read was not that impressive and had a bunch of casual racism, even though it was, for the time period, not too bad for how it depicted women.Note: The rest of this review has been withheld due to the changes in policy and enforcement. You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    Although I enjoyed Triplanetary, the set-up novel for this extended series of classic science-fiction, I still didn’t really understand what the big deal was. I’d heard people rave about these books and insist that games and films should be derived from them. I’d even seen a Lensman anime back in the ‘80s and I understand there was a Lensman board game back in 1969. But while there were some good moments in Triplanetary, it didn’t really explain the hype.Well, I can’t say that about [...]

    The good aliens who are guiding history to a positive outcome give the galactic patrol a device called a "lens" which, among other powers, allows them to communicate telepathically. United by the lens, the patrol goes about eradicating bad guys and turning people to a peaceful, pluralistic, democratic way of life. The series is a forerunner of Star Wars/Star Trek mindsets. Good and evil are clearly defined and people perfectible.

    I found this book to be very much a product of its time, and would have said two stars except there is that spark of something more.The style comes directly out of boys' adventure books, only the moralizing is tempered. Brains are extremely important, but so is brawn and physical perfection. A Real Man is at least 6 feet tall, a natural athlete, and at the top of his class. Physical beauty is usually linked to moral superiority. E.E. Smith takes that one step further and makes the women also sma [...]

    OK - Well Triplanetary was a bit of a head scratcher, but definitely fun with the hardy-boys-esque adventure, but First Lensman is where this series starts to take off (clear ether). E.E. Doc Smith was a true sci-fi adventure writer. There are only a few in his class (i.e. Frank Herbert, Robert Heinlein) who can let their space adventure imaginations run wild. Today I think things are more stiltedIn First Lensman we are allowed into deeper thought experiments with the introduction of the Lens - [...]

    The second installment in E E "Doc" Smith's wonderful series. Virgil Samms is contacted by an alien race - the Arisians - who do mental battle with the Eddorians. Samms is invited to come to Arisia, where he becomes the First Lensman. Equipped with his new, psychically attuned, personalized Lens, he searches the galaxy for other potential Lensmen - men of such high mental quality and impeccable integrity that corruption isn't in their nature.But as with all things good, evil wants no part with t [...]

    Some of the original Space Opera. I remember liking the Lensman books quite a lot as a kid but when I tried to rereading one as an adult it didn't do much for me. Still, I'm going to give them 3 stars. They were pretty full of action and adventure and imagination, but the writing is pretty bad in general

    The second book in what is IMHO the best Space Opera series of all time. Book 2 introduces the Lens and first lensman Virgil Samms. The only bad part was the eBook was horrible. It was unacceptably loaded with typos and grammatical errors. If I didn't love the book so much I would never have continued reading it.

    E.E. Smith is one of the grandfathers of hard science fiction. The Lensmen series is the blueprint of action/adventure in hard science fiction. This is the 8th time I am reading the series, and I get more out of it each time. So do yourself a tremendous favor and read the series. It stars with Triplanetary, then the First Lensmen, Galactic Patrol, Gray Lensmen, Second Stage Lensmen, and finally Children of the Lens. Any science fiction series that Two thousand million or so years ago two galaxie [...]

    I have a soft spot for classic sci-fi, particularly in the comparison of the authors' views on future technology against today's position. This is a great example, although I found I lost my way in three or four places; the plot seemed to jump about a bit too much for me. (Perhaps if I re-read it a little slower it will become slightly clearer for me? I'm going to tackle books 3 to 7 in the series first though!)

    Jack Repenning
    The birthplace of Space Opera!Considerably more literate and insightful than the Damon Runyon dialogue might suggest, the “Skylark” and "Lensmen” series virtually invented the genre that came to encompass Star Trek, Star Wars, and The Terminator. Although each novel stands well alone, the sweeping vision arc caries deep thought about what it means to be human, how to do it best, and in particular the proper role of Earth’s sole standing superpower.

    Very strange. Stereotypes and old fashioned words. It had a good ending though. Most defiantly more books.

    Originally published on my blog here in August 2009.The second novel in Smith's Lensman series, First Lensman is a unified narrative (unlike Triplanetary which precedes it). It follows on directly from the events of the first book, detailing the later stages in the fight against drugs and corruption led by Virgil Samms. (Samms plays a comparatively small part in Triplanetary, which was more concerned with the swashbuckling adventures of his sub-ordinates.)The first half of the novel is an explan [...]

A mysterious barrier, hanging unseen in space, turned back all ships. then the word came to Earth, inexplicably but compellingly:‘GO TO ARISIA!’Virgil Samms, founder of the Galactic Patrol, went – and came back with the Lens, the strange device that gave its wearer powers no man had ever possessed before.Samms knew that the price of this power would be high. But even he had no idea of the ultimate cost – nor o [...]

    First Lensman by Doc E.E. Smith. Read in 2016 on 6/1 to page 71, on 6/22 to page 107, on 7/7 to page 211 and completed it on 7/16. I liked it. I recommend it to classic science fiction fans.”First Lensman” is a story that follows incorruptible heroic space adventurer Virgil Samms as he attempts to establish a military or police force to protect the civilization from those who would rather have chaos.The idea in the Lensmen series begins when a alien species, the Arisians, so unbelievably adv [...]

    The Lensman series is classic in a way certain other thingsare. It, while not an establishes of a form, was in some way a sort of perfected embodiment of it. The rocketships and rayguns crowd were always sort of trying to be this, and yet itself, Lensman is often more than that.First Lensman takes the broad strokes of the previous work, Triplanetary, and sets about stucturing the actual tale of the Lensmen. An extradimensional race called the Eddoreans have reached a point where they cannot dest [...]

    The Lensman Series has been called the Lord of the Rings of science fiction. Honored and praised as the series that provided 20th Century science fiction with lift-off, nearly every trope, icon, plot of the genre can be found here. Epic space battles, space ships of every size and shape, aliens ranging from very human to totally alien, good-guy aliens, telepathy, other dimensions, background settings spanning billions of years, planetary conditions from edenic to hellisheven robotics (after a fa [...]

    I managed to get through this one with only a few eye-rolling moments. It's still more of the same, a product of the era in which it was written, with several casual assumptions about which particular social habits will still be around in the distant future (notably smoking and casual sexism). The Lens is finally introduced to the characters who make up the newly created Galactic Patrol and Galactic Council, and I'm still kind of at a loss to explain why this series is so revered among fans of s [...]

    Nach Triplanetary folgt der (chronologisch) zweite Teil aus der Lensmen Reihe. Virgil Samms bekommt als allererster Mensche eine Lens und den Auftrag, die galaktische Patrouille zu gründen. Dazu bereist er verschiedene Planeten um nach geeigneten Kandidaten zu suchen und er gründet eine Schule mit sehr strengen Ausscheidungskriterien, in der nur die besten, intelligentesten, absolut ehrlichsten Bewerber bestehen. Unterstützung kann er gebrauchen, denn einige finstere Gesellen treiben ihr Unwe [...]

    So I'm planning to read many of the SF classics that I've never gotten around to. And by read, I mean listen to the audio book while I do other things since I obviously haven't wanted to sit down and read most of these books. Much of this book I listened to while designing an ultra modern Sims2 apartment complex. Although this is book 2 in the series - I have foolishly listened to it first and there was a bit of an issue with the first two chapters. They probably make much more sense in situ tha [...]

    I don't remember who recommended EE 'Doc' Smith to me, but I'd never read his Lensman series.I think? it might have been an Asimov on writing book [something along that title - maybe Asimov 'Gold' where he has many essays]. Anyway, these are a definite MUST for the sci-fi lover's why[1] they're set in a sort of alternate earth - meaning it's very familiar, but slightly differentt enough to bother you as you read one way or another, and no need to learn weird words for food, or strange flying dra [...]
