_Retief of the CDT_ is the eigth Retief book and the fifth Retief collection. It consists of five novelettes from _If_, published between 1969 and 1971. They are: "Ballots and Bandits," "Mechanical Advantage," "Pime Doesn't Cray," "Internal Affair," and "The Piecemakers".
In the first tale, the Groaci have been driven off Oberon-- but that does not prevent the local alien bullies from trying to control the elections. It's up to Retief to untangle things. The second story is set on a planet loaded with artifacts of junk. There _might_ be a treasure hidden on it, but those pesky Goaci and some killer robots keep interrupting any hunting parties. The third tale is set on a planet where the natives speak a kind of modified Pig Latin.Read more ›
