Revolt of the Galaxy
Family d'Alembert Book 10
By E.E. 'Doc' Smith and Stephen Goldin
The awesome forces of the Empire of Earth have destroyed most of the evil conspiracy's fleet, including the ship bearing the ice-blooded Lady A, when the Family d'Alembert uncover a plot on the planet Newforest, proving that the conspiracy commanded by the mysterious C is even more widespread than they have dreamed.
For Yvette suddenly realises who - or what - C actually is, and she knows the terrifying true meaning of Lady A's boast that the conspiracy is the Empire!
Revolt of the Galaxy is the tenth and final exciting novel in the enthralling space adventure series whose heroes and heroines are the intrepid Family dAlembert.
E. E. 'Doc' Smith (1890 - 1965)
Edward Elmer Smith was born in Wisconsin in 1890. He attended the University of Idaho and graduated with degrees in chemical engineering; he went on to attain a PhD in the same subject, and spent his working life as a food engineer. Smith is best known for the 'Skylark' and 'Lensman' series of novels, which are arguably the earliest examples of what a modern audience would recognise as Space Opera. Early novels in both series were serialised in the dominant pulp magazines of the day: Argosy, Amazing Stories, Wonder Stories and a pre-Campbell Astounding, although his most successful works were published under Campbell's editorship. Although he won no major SF awards, Smith was Guest of Honour at the second World Science Fiction Convention in Chicago, in 1940. He died in 1965.
Stephen Goldin (1947 - )
Stephen Charles Goldin began publishing science fiction with 'The Girls on USSF 193' for If in 1965. He has written a number of novels and received a Nebula nomination for his short fiction, but is best known for writing the Family D'Alembert sequence, based on a story by E. E. 'Doc' Smith. He lives in California.
