The Skylark of Space is perhaps the greatest interplanetarian and space flying story to appear in any pulp fiction publication. The story is chock full of excellent science and, woven through it there is also that very rare element, love and romance. This element in an interplanetarian story is often apt to be foolish, but it does not seem so in this particular story. The Skylark of Space is considered to be one of the earliest novels of interstellar travel and the first example of space opera.
We know so little about intra-atomic forces, that this story, improbable as it will appear in spots, will read commonplace years hence, when we have atomic engines, and when we have solved the riddle of the atom.
You will follow the hair-raising explorations and strange ventures into far-away worlds with bated breath, and you will be fascinated, as we were, with the strangeness of it all.
