5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By SF lover on April 12, 2011
This is a wonderful story about 'Slippery' Jim DiGriz, later to be known as The Stainless Steel Rat. We first see DiGriz and his two companions in this book when he beats a Casino Planet to win money so they can purchase weaponry to defend themselves against their home planet, the planet Pyrrus. This story is a wonderful short story showing how these three people work together but if you have a Kindle you would be better off spending slightly more and getting much more in the book "The Misplaced Battleship and Other Works by Harry Harrison"

First this story is in the public domain, which means there is no copyright. Many of these non-copyrighted stories where written for the SciFi pulps of the 50's like Astounding(no longer in existence ), they were short and intended to be serialized. This story gave rise to the satirical and humorous Stainless Steel Rat series beginning in 1961. It is a great story and well written , it does have that incomplete feel of an intended serial but it is still a good story and a fun read. Fortunately if you enjoy it there are several complete books that continue the story.

Why on earth has this been published? It's a couple of chapters from Harry Harrison's original "The Stainless Steel Rat" book (with the remainder of the book currently unavailable in digital form). I bought it as I recognized the text, thinking it might be The Stainless Steel Rat under another name. It is not. It doesn't even stand alone as a story.

The Stainless Steel Rat book would have rated 5 stars from me - a humorous SF classic. Being asked to pay for this excerpt? Outrageous!

Be warned. Save your money, wait for the whole book.

I love classic sci fi and especially Harry Harrison and am infinitely grateful that I have found a lot of his works on Amazon. This tale of a roguish agent on the hunt for the thief of a battleship was both nostalgic, smart and humorously tragic and yes a good morsel of sci fi.

Harry Harrison is an author from the second half of the 20th century. He writes his novels in simple prose that carries the story line and satisfies the reader.

Harry Harrison's writing are amazing. I would recommend this book and every single other piece of literature he has ever written.

Read this decades ago and decided to reread, fun book, dated, better than some of Harrison's other SSR adventures, good for a quick read.

This is a short story. If I had paid a buck for it I would have been happy. Looks like this was printed on someones home printer with a fancy cover stapled to it.
