'The Rat can hold his head up high amongst the most elevated superhero company; Bulldog Drummond, James Bond and Flash Gordon' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
Harry Harrison is one of the established greats of SF, whose work includes the cult film Soylent Green. The Stainless Steel Rat is his most popular, and most iconic creation.
'Fast-moving and very funny' -- Evening Standard 'The Monty Python of the spaceways' -- Daily Telegraph 'Truly breathtaking' -- Times Literary Supplement 'Endlessly inventive and studded end to end with laugh-out-loud hilarity. What Terry Pratchett has done for fantasy, Harry Harrison did resoundingly for SF. His Stainless Steel Rat storms the barricades of po-faced Golden Age SF with laughing gas grenades and rams an explosive charge right up its complacent rock-ribbed arse.' -- Richard Morgan
