Book Description

26 Jun 2007
They were four of the greatest minds in the Universe: Two men and two women, all Psionic Primes, lost in an experimental spaceship billions of parsecs from home. And as they mentally charted the cosmos to find their way back to Earth, their own loves and hates were as startling as the worlds they encountered... Here is E. E. Smith's classic science fiction novel -- one of the greatest space operas of all time!

1.0 out of 5 stars poor 11 Jan 2010
I didn't like this book at all. I've read all the Lensman series - they were valid when I was aged 15, and there valid today at 50.
But the Galaxy Primes, in my opinion, is not worth the bother. Despite it being short, I had difficulty reaching the end. It mainly consists of incomprehensible dialogue. No comparison with Lensman.

3.0 out of 5 stars More nostalgia 5 May 2013
By TerryL
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like this authors "Masters of Space", a blast from my past. It wasn't brilliant then (but it was something to read on the daily commute), and the many years since haven't made it any better. Still, it's fairly enjoyable rubbish and deserves the extra star I've given it just for the enjoyment I got out of re-reading it as remembering I don't have to do that commute any more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something a bit different 16 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although written a while ago this SF story can still be read today without seeming to be outdated. There are one or two occasions where its age is obvious but the story about supremely mentally developed humans will stand the test of time.
