If you like Robert Heinlein’s books, especially his later books, you’ll like The Galaxy Primes. E E (Doc Smith) was a close friend of Heinlein’s and in some ways a mentor to him. The influence of books such as The Galaxy Primes on Heinlein is obvious. In some of Heinlein’s books, such as The Number of the Beast (not one of his best books, but clearly an homage to authors such as Doc Smith which makes it kind of fun and endearing) you can see Doc Smith’s influence, especially in the strong females.

I read this as a teen, and grabbed it when I saw it on Kindle. I'm glad I did. The only thing I remembered about it from the 60s was that I had thought it "racy"and on reread, I thought it well thought out, and making what was for its time some good points. Not great fiction, obviously, but well worth a few hours to reread! I thoroughly enjoyed all but one thing -- their ubiquitous cigarettes! I had forgotten that EVERYone in SF smoked back then! I got a good laugh at myself out of that one.

I've recently been (re-)reading a bunch of Doc Smith books. It's been a lot of fun, particularly the Lensman and (to a lesser extent) Skylark series. This one, however, is a stinker. It's not related to the Skylark or Lensman series, which is fine, but the entire premise of the book is over the top. There's also a sexual side story that is really pervasive, and not very well done. Read it if you must, but surely you can find something better.

To the best of my knowledge over at least 50 years of reading SF&F, this is the only attempt to describe civilization(s) based upon the idea that the vast majority of the population are psionic. While this is classic space opera - the main characters are lost in space, fight invading aliens threatening the humanity of the worlds they are visiting, finally learn control of the mechanical psi-functioning spacecraft, and begin unifying the galaxy as a part of the United Galaxian Societies- it is also a subtle commentary on our civilization, especially the cold war. One notable idea is the statement "To the mature mind, there is no such thing as status. Each knows what he can do best and does it as a matter of course. Rank is not necessary."

With a nearly incomprehensible plot, unbelievable and unexplained coincidences abounding, and characters who have none, this stilted example of early E.E. Smith is best avoided unless you are looking for a couple laughs at how badly he used to write. Even those laughs wear then. I persevered to the end hoping to find some redeeming feature, or even a paragraph, buT alas, it was not to be.
Stick with Skylark and Kimball Kinnisson, though with the passage of time and the coming of so many great SF writers, with literary skills as well as scientific imagination and knowledge, I fear those will have diminished in impact as well.

I first read this book when I was a teenager many years ago. This book is from some of the best of the golden age of Science Fiction, and if you didn't already know "Doc" Smith was a friend and mentor to Robert Heinlein. both of these authors were true wordsmiths and masters of their craft. There is something about a story teller when they are good that will draw a person in and make them forget reality for a moment to enjoy the story. this story holds up through the corridors of time as an icon from the days of innocence.

If you've read the lensman series then you'll be familiar with E. E. Doc Smith's style. I like the lensman books and have enjoyed other novels of his too. This is a different matter. In this book he takes a different universe but tries to develop the parapsychology in a different way. It is a real miss. The characters are grating and the plot boring familiar. Give it a miss.
This author is one of my favorite Sci-Fi authors, and this book is one of a kind. He has other titles also, such as the Lensman series, that are a good read. Of course, the book is a flight of fantasy, where the principles flit from planet to planet in an "iron powered" spaceship directed by mental forces (nuclear fusion was not understood when this book was written, so this lapse is excusable) battling evil doers of all types.
