Gateway Welcomes the Lensmen – As They Were Meant to Be Seen!

27 June 2017

A few months ago we wished legendary SF cover artist Chris Foss a very happy birthday. Now, we have a present for all who love his art.

We’re delightewd to announce that E E ‘Doc’ Smith‘s classic ‘Lensman’ series is now available in eBook from SF Gateway, adorned with the wonderul Chris Foss covers from their iconic Panther paperback editions (mostly: there were a few titles where the original art was unavailable in high-res form, so we had to substitute other – equally wonderful – Chris Foss art).

The result, as we’re sure you’ll agree, is stunning:

You can find these and more of E E ‘Doc’ Smith’s work via his Author page on the Gateway website, and read about him in his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.

    Doc Smith expanded my young mind while at high school along with Bradbury , Clarke and Asimov . Foss coloured it in and inspired my imagination beyond the edge of the universe . Without these two influences , I would have remained a turnip .
