Rereading the Lensman series of SciFi books, they are the progenitor of all modern SciFi. In the second book our hero has just mastered mind control as he explores his Jedi Lens powers, used it to infiltrate an enemy base, and convert half its people from the dark to the light side. No, Star Wars didn't invent that. It borrowed it from the Lensman books written before the second world war. Anyway that's a truly great SciFi series, the sheer scope and scale. Terrible terrible prose mind you. But definitely enjoying the second book a ton!
