    " indication early on in my life that the BBC were telling me lies about westminster- might find if I read it today that it isn't up to the standard of deviance of our current generation of wise guys "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 GyÅ‘zÅ‘ | 10/26/2013

    " The best one of the first four. The characters are much more developed and finally no time travel "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noah Easterly | 10/5/2013

    " These were more fun when I was younger. But worked well to fill the time, and as a palate cleanser. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 9/23/2013

    " This is my favorite in this series, it is funny without being too slapstick and has great social commentary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 5/18/2013

    " More Stainless steel rat - best read in order "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erika | 5/3/2013

    " I'm pretty sure this one was my favorite... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dehibberdwrites | 4/20/2013

    " The Stainless Steel Rat series was an excellent and entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Young | 12/12/2011

    " Slippery Jim DiGriz does it again. I don't care what anyone says, these stories are great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan457 | 11/4/2011

    " Slippery Jim rigs the political system. Great conman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Randall | 10/28/2011

    " An interesting continuation of the saga. Hardly earth-shatteringly brilliant, but it's nice to see how James' kids (now grown up) handle things in the field. james' reading speed may leave the imagination behind a little, but it's an interesting read all the same. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 7/4/2011

    " Funny, tricksy and a born criminal, the stainless steel Rat goes into Politics! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorian | 6/13/2011

    " Fun read and fun characters. I started with this one and for some reason believe that it is likely not the best in the series. So I will be reading more about the stainless steel rat, but with hopefully more laughs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea Decker | 5/23/2011

    " Slippery Jim is at it again! I was very surprised at his new mission. He's running for president on a planet with a corrupt government to help fix it? But how will he work for the Special Corps if he does that? But the book had a great ending which I thought was appropriate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Egrommet | 5/3/2011

    " Still great fun, but these are prequels and have a less edgy feel. Worth a read but go for the originals first "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saeed | 1/10/2010

    " Yummy pulp scifi from my younger days. "

    " 'loved this book... Harry Harrison is funny in all his books, but I especially loved these first few in the Stainless Steel Rat series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theodore | 5/26/2007

    " The grandaddy of all heist series. Depicting the birth of a (human) con arrist. In the past we had rats sneaking through the holes in the wooden framework of society in the very distant future the rats must be made out of stainless steel to fit through and make a living in the spaces of a society.

About the Author
Author Harry Harrison

Harry Harrison (1925-2012) was drafted into the Army after finishing school and served in World War II, where he learned both to shoot guns and repair analogue computers. Leaving the Army at the end of the war, Harrison teamed up with Wally Wood and produced professional comic book art. When the comic book boom came to an end, Harrison moved from drawing to writing. In 1957 his story, “The Stainless Steel Rat” was published in Astounding, and introduced a character which would stay with him (and readers) for the next forty-odd years. In 1975 Harrison had his first brush with Hollywood when his novel, Make Room! Make Room! was used for the basis of Soylent Green. His novels have also been successfully adapted for other media: radio plays and readings, a board game, at least one computer game, and, taking us full-circle, comic books, most notably 2000AD’s adaptations of the Stainless Steel Rat books.

In a career spanning sixty years, Harrison produced more than a hundred short stories, edited over thirty anthologies, and published more than sixty novels.
