One of the best sci fi authors is E.E.(Doc) Smith. He wrote the Lensman series in the 1930s. His descriptions of atomic war were so real, that during WW2 the US Secret Service investigated him because they felt he knew something about the development if the atomic bomb that he should not know.

We have completed the sale of my Dads literary estate and are looking forward to seeing his works republished by Wildside Press.

I think there will be a lot of younger readers that will enjoy seeing some of his hard to find works in circulation once more.

"Sorry, Isaac Asimov is highly unlikely -- most works in copyright and still very popular/available from larger companies. Sorry I missed your blog post -- most people post suggestions in the Forum."

Here's a rather frivolous suggestion for a megapack. This is a writer I've never actually read, but boy, do I remember those paperback cover.s... A crime writer (among other things, but for those he used other names) who wrote his hard-boiled American novels in his native Australia. The name: Carter Brown.This guy was more prolific than Walter Gibson. Once humongously popular, currently almost completely forgotten.See More
