One of SF's most beloved rogues: the Stainless Steel Rat!

Slippery Jim DiGriz is the Stainless Steel Rat: the galaxy's greatest interstellar thief and con artist. For novel upon novel, the Rat has outfoxed the forces of conventionality, cutting a stylish swathe through dozens of star systems-and stealing the hearts of thousands of readers.

Now three of the Rat's greatest exploits are collected in a single volume. In A Stainless Steel Rat Is Born, we see the origin and early days of Jim DiGriz's brilliant criminal career, as our underworld hero is forced to work for the Good Guys. Conscripted again in The Stainless Steel Rat Gets Drafted, this time into a planetary army, the Rat must avenge the murder of his mentor-in-crime. And in The Stainless Steel Rat Sings the Blues, Slippery Jim must retrieve a missing alien artifact, while disguised as a futuristic rock-and-roller...or forfeit his life.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Long Live the Rat!

"When Kingsley Amis read the first Stainless Steel Rat novel he said, 'Well, Harry, you have written the first picaresque science fiction novel.' I nodded sagaciously-and at the first opportunity rushed to my dictionary.

"Picaresque 1." of or relating to a type of fiction in which the hero, a rogue, goes through a series of episodic adventures.

Well, that is a fair enough description. My hero is alone against the universe, with every man's hand-if not every woman's-turned against him. He is without the law, verily a law unto himself, with a strict sense of morality. Aren't the two mutually incompatible? No, as you will soon discover..." -Harry Harrison, from the Introduction

"Cheerfully larcenous and anarchic. Long may the Rat run roughshod over the forces of law, order, and the square world." -"The Orlando Sentinel"

"Harrison's fictions constitute one of the main monuments in modern SF." -Paul Di Filippo, "," on "50 in 50"
