Spacehounds of IPC - Edward Elmer "Doc" Smith. While the newcomer was talking, he had stripped the covers from a precise scale model of the solar system and from a large and complicated calculating machine and had set to work without a wasted motion or instant-scaling off upon the model the positions of the various check-stations and setting up long and involved integrals and equations upon the calculator.

In contrast to the Skylark and the Lensman series by Edward E. Smith, a visionary, foremost science fiction author, Spacehounds of IPC is a "stand alone" book. It narrates of a huge spaceship on a . .outine flight to Mars being partially destroyed by aliens, who try to convey it to Jupiter. In view of the date of writing, 1931 to be exact, the story appears to be a striking fantastic adventure. Amazing technology, the unknown life forms, suspense and heroism – the book possesses all these in abundance. MoreLess Show More Show Less.

Farbelow the surface lay the city of Zbardk, the largest of the fewremaining strongholds of the human race. At one portal of the city atorpedo-shaped, stubby-winged rocket plane rested in the carriage of acatapult. Near it the captain addressed briefly the six men normallycomposing his crew.

A good many of us, who are now certain beyond a doubt that space travel will forever remain in the realm of the impossible, probably would, if a rocket that were shot to the moon, for instance, did arrive, and perhaps return to give proof of its safe arrival on our satellite, accept the phenomenon in a perfectly blase, twentieth century manner

Good old fun, old-style science fiction! Smith was criticized for not having the story events occur "outside the solar system", but those comments are from picky "spoil-sports". Old-time sci-fi is literature that you should just relax and enjoy! Smith wrote lots of books involving additional galaxies. It should be remembered that "Doc" Smith was one of the first old-time sci-fi writers who had a PhD and employed real science to his fictional books, along with the Physicist John W. Campbell ("Who Goes There?", the basis for "The Thing" movies). Little doubt George Lucas got his idea for The Death Star from the Metal Planetoid that Smith used in his Lensman series. The idea of The Sunbeam (Star Wars), Hyper-Spatial Tube (Artificially Created Wormholes) and a Supercomputer are also "Smith originals" from the Lensman series. "Doc" Smith was a genius, way ahead of his time!

I was unsure how this story was going to grab me. Sure, it was quite dated, but seeing as it was published shortly after WW2, it had a lot of imaginative ideas about space travel, combined with old-world mechanical technology. I found the characters to be likeable and even if the troubles they got into and out of seemed rather farcical, I still rate this story as very enjoyable. Would be nice to see this turned into a movie some day!

A dated story written many many moons ago, but it was one of the first sci fi books I read as a child and I find that I still love it. Like Burroughs, the science in the sci fi isn't really there and the characters are rather one dimensional, but still enjoyable.

When you think that this work was first published in 1931, much closer to the 19th Century than our own, you have to be impressed. So much is wrong with the science, especially the planetary science, that you just shake your head sometimes. But that's with 80+ years of hindsight. Take this story in context and it's a great read. The "with it" banter and expressions are so far out of date that you have to laugh out loud, but that's half the fun. Highly recommended.

Read and re-read books by this author in my early teens Skylark, Lensman series etc

Enjoyed reading this book again - ok it is not the most sophisticated SF - but for the time when it was written it had some interesting ideas even if they are 1930s simplistic

This was an interesting read, I'd say a cut above the genre for the time period in which it was written. There are many dated catch phrases with it, but if you can get past that, the description of technology is interesting. I'd say it's "All X!"

An excellent space opera, one that contains variants of other things that were seen in other novels, such as the snake like beings that resemble Worsel and the other Velantians, pressor and tractor rays, and other things. There is a refreshing lack of ray guns (no DeLameters here!) and super weapons, at least on the human side. I do have to say that this contained some of the most realistic portrayals of a woman in Smith's books, similar to the women in the SUBSPACE novels.
"DOC" SMITH audaciously created a fine race of super humans to interact with nefarious aliens, which are beyond understanding, in this novella from his late forties. In my mind it has withstood the test of memory and remains lumpy in character development but wonderful in action!
