Here are the two series that are in our list" ** stars show which ones are on the list. Obviously, we just read the first four in the Lensman series because 2, 3, and 4 are on the list. Somebody once told me, though, that Triplanetary (#1) was their favorite.

Re Skylark series, we will have to read all of them. Note that it was published 1966 and he died in 1965, so it may have been a salute to one of the fathers of SF by the fans. Or maybe we just start the 4th and see if it makes sense by itself.

No more to say about this subject . . .

Lensman

Triplanetary (1948)
First Lensman (1950)*
Galactic Patrol (1950)*
Gray Lensman (1951)*
Second Stage Lensmen (1953)
The Vortex Blaster (1960)
Children of the Lens (1954)

Skylark

The Skylark of Space (1946)
Skylark Three (1948)
Skylark of Valeron (1949)
Skylark DuQuesne (1966)*

Reading four Lensnan books makes sense, by the time we are through reading them we should all have some idea whether to read more books from the same series.

If I remember right from when I owned the paperbacks, they are short. Perhaps we can read more that one a month
