My Review of The Vortex Blaster

The Vortex Blaster (Lensman, #7)

The Vortex Blaster by E.E. “Doc” Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Vortex Blaster is set in Smith’s Lensman universe, and some Lensmen and the Galactic Patrol make an appearance, but is really a stand-alone novel that really does not need to be read as part of the series. The plot involves a man with a computer in his brain who takes on the job of snuffing out “atomic vortices” that periodically erupt from nuclear power stations. It turns out that he is the first person capable of doing this, which sets him up a tour of the galaxy and various adventures. And being in the Lensman universe, mental powers are involved, but in this case distinct from the powers of the lensmen.
