If you want to learn about Space Opera from the Golden Age, this is not a bad place to start. Smith is considered by many to the Father of Space Opera, and this collection is a convenient place to get started. The works are somewhat uneven, with Masters of Space really filled with cardboard characters and "gee-whiz" plotting, but on the other end Triplanetary and The Vortex Blaster are pretty good. Since this is generally available inexpensively on the usual e-book sites, give it a try. You might find something you like.
