The villainous He has travelled back in time to mankind's distant past on the legendary planet Earth (or Dirt) of 1984, where he is altering events so that people who opposed him in the Rat's present cease to exist, Angelina amongst them. Using the Helix, a time-travel device invented by the Special Corps' Professor Coypu, diGriz travels to 1984 America, and then to Napoleonic France where tanks and aircraft are helping bring about Napoleon's victory.

    " What can make a Slippery Jim adventure better? How about time travel? Not enough? How about the Napoleonic War and NYC in the 1970s? Yep. It's that good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Heavner | 1/11/2014

    " fun scifi brain candy. A fun (almost flippant) look at time-travel and paradoxes.. "

    " Liked this Stainless Rat book a lot - nice Time travel twists "

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Theyers | 11/26/2013

    " I shall be introducing my children to Harry Harrison's Stainless Steel Rat as soon as I can! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 11/9/2013

    " Fast paced, as all the Rat books so far. Dues Ex Machinas at every turn help make this the tongue-in-cheek parody sci-fi adventure series that's as good as the serious stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Graham Crawford | 10/30/2013

    " fluffy sexist James Bond in space with lots of gadgets sci-fi forgot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 8/2/2013

    " While not as good as the previous books in the series its still provides a lot of the witty humor displaced in this series so far, the whole time travel edge to the story really threw it off a lot though, hence only 3/5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Gordon | 6/2/2013

    " Along with the SSR and SSR's revenge , an absolute classic. Few dull moments. Pulp in a great way. Classic. Classic Classic must read. Movie now please. No really, now!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Uhri | 1/31/2013

    " Least favorite of the first three SSR books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thom | 7/28/2012

    " Two of my favorite genres - time travel and the Stainless Steel Rat. No explanation of why characters just "fade out" at the beginning of the story, and clearly no "parallel dimensions" hypothesis, but good fun regardless. As an aside, some good clean fun poked at 1970s Earth, the US in particular. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Ward | 2/17/2012

    " This was definitely a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sridhar Reddy | 11/9/2011

    " the issues of time travel are not very well dealt with and I wasn't convinced at one or two instances. The central idea is very far fetched even in fictional terms. Comedy is good though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dean Lappi | 6/8/2011

    " The Stainless Steel Rat Saves The World was the first Stainless Steel Rat book I read. It is a classic. I read the Stainless Steel Rat books every few years, and have done this for the past 30 years. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dani Kollin | 3/11/2011

    " Ugh. A real let down from second in the series and drop off of epic proportions from the first. Time travel is always a dicey gambit and quite hard to do well. Suffice to say this book rests in the decidedly 'unwell' category. "

    " super drug, time travel.napoleon win. "

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.
