My Review of Skylark Three

Skylark Three (Skylark, #2)

Skylark Three by E.E. “Doc” Smith

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The Skylark Three is the second of four novels in Smith’s Skylark series. The three in the title refers to the third spaceship they built. Like most Smith novels, it moves along with a lot of action. Overlord Seaton of the Central System deals with interplanetary war between the planets of the system. Then the monstrous Fenachrone race is introduced, and they threaten the whole galaxy with conquest. Only Seaton can stop them! If you ever wanted to know what pulp fiction of the classic age of science fiction is like, this series is a good place to start. Smith is regarded as the “Father of Space Opera”, and this is where he started.

I read this as part of a collection “The Works of E.E. “Doc” Smith”
