The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Jack Williamson - Blue Tyson

Jack Williamson was a science fiction and fantasy author who amazingly produced work in nine consecutive decades. Hence his output is considerable, dozens of novels and a considerably larger total of short stories. Quite a few of which will be of interest. I have read only a tiny percentage of his work, ranging from the decades old Prince of Space story to the relatively recent The Ultimate Earth.

His Legion of Space series is his well known work in this subgenre, and it is space Three Musketeers plus Falstaff in this story of traitors aligning with alien invaders to usurp the Empire.
