The sequels fill a much needed absence.
I think you're not recommending them, but
I might be not the only person struggling to
tell. The hour is late.
I think I heard that witticism before, so that the
absence of those sequels was what was much needed,
the filling of which deprived us of what was needed,
was obvious enough.
Wilson "Bob" Tucker, who coined the phrase "Space Opera," beats around
the bush a bit with _Exile of the Skies_ written by Richard Vaughan
(reportedly at the tender age of seventeen):
"I remember Richard Vaughn's novel very well, although not
clearly at this distance in years and I am pleased that it
will again be in print. I have liked it so well for such a
long time that many years ago, when an editor asked me to
recommend novels to him for reprinting, /this/ one was
never the top of my list. Unfortunately that editor did
not reprint the story and I waited until now to read it
Fortunately for fans who enjoy escapist science-fiction stories,
Tucker's oppressive opinion opus ended a while ago.
