'The Airlords of Han' has even more technical and detailed information passages than the original story. This distracts from the narration but adds a richness of speculation that is frequently lost in modern writing styles. It also corrects some weaknesses found in the first tale. The story brings a greater understanding of the later writing that borrows from 'Buck Rogers.' Even with the passage of 75 years, there is a freshness and spark to the dated storytelling. T'he Airlords of Han' is a must read for those interested in the roots of modern genre writing and is just plain fun for everyone else.
