Synopsis

When the Inter-Planetary Corporation's crack spaceliner Arturus took off on a routine flight to Mars, it turned out to be the beginning of a most unexpected trip to the unexplored moons of distant Jupiter.



For once wreaked on Ganymede, the survivors had first to master that world's primeval terrors, then reconstruct a new spacecraft, and finally find a way out of the problems presented by the warring intelligence of the Jovian system.



SPACEHOUNDS OF ICP is justly considered to be on of Edward E. Smith's finest novels - a standalone classic of exciting space adventure.

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. E. Everett Evans (1893–1958) Edward Everett Evans was a long-time genre fan who later became a minor SF writer. He helped to put on the first Westercon and published the fanzine The Time-Binder in the 40s. His professional works included the novels Man of Many Minds (1953), The Planet Mappers (1955), Alien Minds (1955), and the posthumously-published collaboration with E. E. ‘Doc’ Smith Masters of Space (1976).
