E. E. "Doc" Smith
Write science fiction novels. As _Galactic Patrol_ was one of the first books that I ever read, it will always have a special place in my hearts. Classic science fiction, which really defines the term "space opera".
Smith is now sadly deceased.
- Science fiction series. The first six volumes are really the story of the Lens, while the seventh is a story set in the same universe. An epic story of a universe-wide conflict, that is finally decided by a civilisation from the planet Earth.
- Science fiction series. The scientist Richard Seaton discovers a way of releasing the ultimate energy, allowing him to create a spacecraft to travel to the stars. When the spaceship "Skylark" is completed, an accident means it is launched out of control with only the scientist and a few friends onboard.
- Science fiction series. The family d'Alembert is a circus troupe that is renowned galaxy-wide. The family is loyal to the Empire and provides a cover for imperial agents. Jules and Yvette d'Alembert are two of the best of the family and act to uncover plots against the Stanley Dynasty.
