Donaldson, Stephen R.
“I recommend the Gap series. The first book is very nasty. The others are also nasty, but not quite to the degree of the first. However, despite this (maybe in some ways because of this) they are very good. They are also very imaginative. Sort of a dark space opera, in which all the characters should have been drowned at birth.” — jam

Smith, Edward E.
Edward E. Smith, Ph.D., was one of the founders of modern SF. His Skylark of Space series was the first real space opera. Skylark and the later Lensman series had enormous influence in the field. None of this influence was due to Doc Smith’s writing skill: he was, even by the standards of the day, a mediocre writer. By today’s standards his books would probably be considered unpublishable. His deserved reputation rests on the pioneering nature of his writing, his personality — he was beloved by everyone in the field — and on the vitality of his storytelling. Read these books to enjoy them and to see where it all began.
