Where's the rest of it,
This review is from: Triplanetary (Paperback)
When I first read Triplanetary, a long time ago, there were chapters about Atantis, the Roman Empire and the World Wars (up to WW3). Sadly these aren't included in this edition and what is left feels dated.

Paul Magnussen says:
It looks, from what you say, that this edition is the original version that was serialised in "Amazing Stories" in 1934, before Smith's 1948 rewrite of it to fit into the Lensman series. In that case, I would rather praise Wildside for giving us back the original: quite frankly, I think the revised version is rather a mess, particularly as the preface you mention contains spoilers for the whole Lensman series.
Just my opinion.
