Book Note: Edward E. Smith, Spacehounds of IPC (#2)

I read this book about 19-Jan-2005. I've read this book before. The book is copyright 1931. This note was last modified Thursday, 20-Jan-2005 16:39:38 PST.

This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.


I finally read through my first-edition hardcover of this one. To the best of my memory, no significant changes from the paperback I'm familiar with. I can't help noticing, however, that this book, and the others advertised on the back cover, are priced at $3.

I seem to have done very detailed comments last time, so I don't find myself drawn to repeating them.

There are some interesting notes on the author on the rear jacket flap, and a nice picture. It mentions he spent some of his childhood on a 160-acre homestead in Idaho (reminiscent of Seaton), and that he worked as a miner for a while (the mining scenes in various books sounded fairly convincing to me).

It also says that Skylark was finished in 1920, which is two to five years later than most modern sources give.
