The first book of Smith's Lensman series, Triplanetary traces the conflict of two powerful races, the enlightened Arisians and the evil Eddorians, as played out on Earth. The book follows snippets from Atlantis, Rome, the two World Wars, and a near-future in which men freely travel in space, finally culminating in a great space-battle. The writing is undeniably pulpy, as one might expect from science fiction written in the 1930s, but lots of fun for all that. Final verdict: a fun, if very campy, read.
