Galactic Patrol


This book might be fun if you can read it as classical pulp adventure and overlook the questionable morals.

Kinnison the Lensman acts as judge, jury and executioner as needed? Has an enhanced body, enhanced senses, and mind control abilities? Can break any laws as he wishes and give any orders to anybody? Is responsible to no one? What could possibly go wrong...

The book was published in 1950. Doc Smith apparently had not followed recent history. This was egregious enough for me to seriously spoil what might otherwise have been a fun adventure.

Not recommended.
