    You don’t know the master of space opera, E.E. “Doc” Smith? Why without Smith, there’d be no Star Wars or Star Trek. Wherever fast-talking rocket jockeys rescue curvaceous alien princesses from hordes of tentacled brain-suckers from planet Zebulon, you can bet that E.E. “Doc” Smith chronicled their exploits. With plenty of laser-gun blasts, too.

  4. Lars; I would thought you were a jerry pournelle. I was Hal clement; and I’m depressed about it. (I might have hoped for P. Dick, or C. Smith.)
