First Lensman - E.E 'Doc' Smith

This is the Forty-third in my one-book-at-a-time bookshelf.

The Lensman series starts to gather momentum with the first lensman setting the tone for those who would follow. There are the small battles within the larger battle and the introduction of non-human lensmen.

The Lensman series has been compared to Asimov's Foundation series and there are many points of similarity, especially with the large canvas of space and time and the deterministic nature of the universe, but Asimov tends to be cool and intellectual, while Smith is emotive with lots of rough and tumble.
