First his feed back was short and sweet, he loved it, it was very much a detective type novel set on Mars. From my perspective, I had to remember this was science fiction, because the story was so good, I'd forget that the action was on Mars.
It reminded me of the movie Outland, which is a western story set on IO, a moon of Jupiter. In this case, its like a film noir, totally - but set on Mars.
So, if you like film noir type novels, or science fiction, than you will love Police Your Planet.
If you love both, than perfect!
Read it! You wont' put it down, its fantastic!
Then there's the girl. There's always a girl. But remember the times in which stories like this were written. So, yeah, the girl has to be there, and she seems to want to kill our hero. There's always a hitch!
If you like Del Rey, you'll like this one, too.

It has the characters and scenarios that made for great sci-fi after WW II. Read more
One of the first sci-fi books I read in my youth, I'm glad it held up well after returning to it 30+ years later... It's not deep, it's not thoughtful. Read morePublished on March 7, 2013 by Paul Pelfrey

More people of course who profess the love of Science Fiction need to search out and read such classics. Read more
This 1950s sci-fi adventure story has been a favorite of mine for many years. I am not sure what it is about the 1950s era sci-fi that I like so much. Read morePublished on May 7, 2012 by Mike
I don't think this story was ever intended to be taken too seriously. It has the feel of a crime comic book set on Mars. Still, it was fun to read. Read morePublished on December 29, 2011 by Robin Lynn Frank
