    A Great Collection

    It's wonderful that we have a compilation of the seminal works of E.E. "Doc" Smith. These books are the foundation of modern SF, with galactic size plots, secret plots, larger-than-life heroes and contemptible villains. Who else would conceive of using planets as weapons?

    However, the execution of this compilation is inadequate and disrespectful to the material. Clearly, the books were scanned and converted using OCR, but also clearly, no one reviewed the quality of the scan. The result is that there are many, many scan errors that interfere with the enjoyment of the books. For example, 'Ah! You are here' becomes 'Ali, you are here.' You have to stop and figure out what the scan error is. This is a horrible way to treat these important works.

    Editors, please have someone review and fix the errors.

    Whilst having the entire Lensmen series is a good step - dropping "The Vortex Blaster" in favor of Skylark Duquense would have been "da bomb".
    My goal is to update this some day and make it readable for the 21st century.
