Jim and Angelina are on holiday on the paradise planet Lussuoso, where the very, very rich can avail themselves of rejuvenating treatments and become young again. Just when boredom seems about to set in, Jim learns that Angelina has disappeared, seemingly the victim of a religious scam. Evil genius Justin Slakey has a machine that allows him to travel between universes. He uses it to prey on religious believers, tricking them out of their money and then using them as slaves in his coal mines. Aided by his twin sons, James and Bolivar, Slippery Jim descends to a planet that seems to be a real-life version of Hell - and when you can't take metal weapons between the universes, what do you arm yourselves with? Salami, of course.

    " Sor of like a Poul Anderson story in concept - but otherwise Slippery Jim and family now.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christopher Gordon | 3/30/2012

    " Not a classic. But worth a quick read. If you're unfamiliar with SSR then check them out in order, the first 4 are classics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 8/28/2011

    " Interesting book which kept me reading. The characters were likeable and the story had lots of good twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandi | 3/29/2011

    " The movie and the book are very different. Don't let the movie hype taint your brain on the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/11/2011

    " I really liked the forward thinking of the author regarding overpopulation and the unsustainable situation in which we will (or are now starting to) find ourselves. Unlike in the film, Soylent [Green] is NOT 'people' in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois | 3/8/2011

    " I'm not too much of a science fiction fan, but I liked this story.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 1/12/2011

    " A bleak outlook for the world, over populated and under resourced. This story is the basis for the movie Soylent Green, but they are completely different stories, so can't really be compared. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhysnixon | 10/9/2010

    " awesome story, nice and bleak. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jnyama | 9/15/2010

    " Probably more frightening now, then it was 10 years ago, as we seem to be plummeting headlong back into the same situations that created the dystopia Harrison presents. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gozde | 5/26/2010

    " yazildigi tarihten neredeyse bugünü öngörmüs. o kadar vahim olmasa da çok yaklasmis bir durumda olmamiz ise içler acisi. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mystfromthesea | 4/21/2010

    " This was the book that the movie "Soy-lent Green" was based on. It was a nice fast paced read and I enjoyed it. There were some key differences between the movie and the book, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. "

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.
