All the creative energies of the West have been directed into space exploration and development - dozens of new worlds are being opened up. Left behind on Earth are the sluggish remnants of former greatness.

But in the East, a mighty dictatorship has arisen - a single absolute monarch rules: The Nameless One of the East. What follows is a raging conflict, on Earth and in space - conflict as only master pulp storyteller E.E. "Doc" Smith can write it.

About the author (2011)

E. E. 'Doc' Smith (1890 - 1965) Edward Elmer Smith was born in Wisconsin in 1890. He attended the University of Idaho and graduated with degrees in chemical engineering; he went on to attain a PhD in the same subject, and spent his working life as a food engineer. Smith is best known for the 'Skylark' and 'Lensman' series of novels, which are arguably the earliest examples of what a modern audience would recognise as Space Opera. Early novels in both series were serialised in the dominant pulp magazines of the day: Argosy, Amazing Stories, Wonder Stories and a pre-Campbell Astounding, although his most successful works were published under Campbell's editorship. Although he won no major SF awards, Smith was Guest of Honour at the second World Science Fiction Convention in Chicago, in 1940. He died in 1965.
