The prequel to the Stainless Steel Rat. Slippery Jim is here a brash 17-year-old who has left his parents' porcuswine farm, planning to embark on a life of crime. The book opens with Jim bungling a bank job so that he can be arrested and sent to prison, where he plans to learn the art of being a master criminal. Deciding that the Bishop should be his mentor, Jim sets about proving himself worthy of the master's attention.

He eventually has to flee his home planet of Bit O' Heaven with the Bishop, but Garth, the captain of the ship who promised them safe passage, sells them into slavery. The latter part of the book details Jim's adventures on the planet Spiovente, a semi-industrial world fighting feudal wars with weapons smuggled in (against League regulations) by Captain Garth.

    " Always nice to become acquainted with our hero's humble past. Jim wasn't born a rat, but had to discover how to become one through tutelage and loss. By purposefully landing himself in jail, Jim tries to learn from his fellow crooks but realizes only the best rats never get caught. Unfortunately, Jim accidently reveals the secret whereabouts of the most infamous and much-sought-after rat, in an attempt to show off his skills to said master rat. Now, he not only has to save his own skin but that of his new master. "

    " I've never read any of the other rat books and picked this up based of having heard good things about the series. Despite this not being the "first" release-wise, it is the first chronologically, and for me was a good introduction to the series. I will be seeking out more of these books. "

    " Classic sci-fi parody/humor that still stands up today. "

    " A fun book, not quite as entertaining as others in the series, but worth a read. "
