Subspace Survivors by E. E. Smith

Filed under: Science Fiction — Randolph @ 3:45 pm

Subspace Survivors by E.E. 'Doc' SmithThis is a rather typical space opera by Doc Smith. It was written around 1960 so is a little more modern. The heroes are about prefect, the villains evil, all are fairly shallow.

Some ships occasionally disappear in hyperspace, so this is one of them. The story is how the crew copes, and deals with onboard pirates. Naturally, everyone carries their guns.

The story is about their survival when subspace problems happen.

Generally, the story is very short, there aren’t enough subplots, and little tension. Within the scope of Smith’s earlier works and others in similar genre’s it’s ok, but I think others are better.
