These books are so cute! They all feature David "Lucky" Starr in a sci-fi take on the Lone Ranger. All six books are quite similar in a few ways. For example, Asimov tries to keep you on your toes if you try to figure out who the mastermind villain is, but the villian in each book is a similar character. So once you find out who it is in the first book, you can probably tell who it's going to be in the others.

These books are quick, easy, fun reads, and might make a good introduction to science

Written as tales for children under the name Paul French, this is a compilation of all six stories in one novel. If only someone had handed me this when I was younger, instead of Nancy Drew, by foray in to SF would have started much sooner. Sadly the stories are mostly out of print or horribly difficult to get at libraries. Good stuff!

If you like the nostalgic feel of Buck Rogers, the adventurer in space righting wrongs, you'll love the Lucky Starr adventures. Lucky Starr, space ranger and his side kick the diminutive Bigman solve mysteries with science and fists. Each adventure takes place on the planets in this solar system. While the science is dated – Venus isn’t covered by an ocean, Mercury doesn’t keep one side to the sun and the other always in the dark, I enjoyed the hard science approach. Earthmen don’t land on a pla ...more

A fun series. I enjoyed the introduction by Isaac Asimov-it was amusing and the background information he gave was interesting. One thing-this story was supposed to be a counterpart to the Lone Ranger but Lucky Starr was only the "Space Ranger" in the first two stories. I kept expecting him to pull out his force field/mask and it never happened. I still enjoyed the stories though-they are well written and a great choice for Sci-Fi fans looking for a light, entertaining read.

Asimov gilt als eher schwere Kost im SciFi Bereich. Als Begründer der Robotergesetze hat er einen sehr guten und meist auch begründeten Ruf HardSF zu schreiben. Mit Lucky Starr zeigt er das er auch in der Lage ist einfach nur SciFi zu Unterhaltungszwecken zu schreiben. Ließt sich leicht und entspannt, ist und bleibt kreativ und spannend.
