It's been years, even decades, since I last read those words.

What? Oh, you said Doc Smith, not Doc Savage. My bad!
I also recommend his Skylark series. The parallels in the fourth book with some of Heinlein's later works are interesting..

One thing I'm running into while reading Galactic Patrol is the same thing I ran into with some of the Nero Wolfe books: someone used a spell checker on the output of the OCR, and it's "fixed" some of the proper names.
In a couple of the Wolfe books, Orrie Cather has been renamed Orrie Gather. And just now, in the last part of Galactic Patrol, the planet Trenco has been renamed Trench. Sigh.
What's stupid about this is that in other Wolfe books, Orrie's name is right, and in the early part of Galactic Patrol they got Trenco's name right.
