After saving the world, diGriz is called on to save the universe. Liberating his two, now teenage, twin sons from a military boarding school and penitentiary, diGriz sets out to free his wife, who has been arrested by the tax men. But the family is soon fighting an enemy of a different sort when the humans-only galaxy of the League is invaded by all manner of hideous aliens.

The Rat, disguised in the most hideous combination of alien physical features, is sent into the centre of the aliens' stronghold, where he finds himself the object of desire among the aliens. His task is to stop the aliens, who plan to wipe out every human in the universe.

    " The description on the site is for the wrong book. THis is a about The Stainless Steel Rat and not Bill the Galatic Hero. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 9/11/2013

    " Read like Terry Pratchett (a funny fantasy writer), was very entertaining. Except for the one part were the author obviously is getting on a soapbox about capital punishment, there was no reason for it to be in the library's discarded books sale. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erik Graff | 8/2/2013

    " I'd read Harrison's Deathworld books as a kid and picked this up remembering how much I'd enjoyed them--in grade school! I was disappointed, but then again my tastes had changed. This novel and this series are bits of fluff, not to be taken seriously, but entertaining, even funny, sometimes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J.P. | 7/31/2013

    " Harry Harrison's rat books are always good for a laugh and although the plot is occasionally thin as in this one, they never fail to entertain "

    " standard ssr fare - slippery jim sets out to rescue his angelina and ends up saving the universe again! the adventures of the rat and his family are enjoyable light brain candy and not meant to be taken serious, and never should they be! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 6/7/2013

    " Maybe his most famous book. I enjoyed it pretty well but it didn't convert me to a big fan of the series. I've not read any others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/2/2013

    " Funniest thing ever. A total potato-chip book, and it doesn't take a bunch of brain cells to read, but it's good for a laugh. Who else has champagne in their emergency survival kit but Jim DiGriz? NO ONE! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 12/8/2012

    " More Stainless steel rat - best read in order "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillip Hall | 12/5/2012

    " I absolutely fell in love with the Stainless Steel Rat series. They are goofy, fast paced, and humorous sci-fi books. It was my first introduction to Harry Harrison and also my first time ever reading a comedic sci-fi book. I loved both of them immediately. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Young | 8/2/2012

    " When I read this the first time when I was a young teenager I thought this series was awesome. After many years and re-reading it, I realize it is only good. Still, I am giving it 5 stars since that was my initial reaction when I first read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 GyÅ‘zÅ‘ | 7/12/2012

    " Not as bad as the last one The metaplot from the second book was a plus too Still "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jay | 5/31/2012

    " It was ok. Not sure I'd recommend but always he kept a good sense of humor mixed in. As always with SSR, plot moves quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seagoat | 1/14/2012

    " I fell in love with The Stainless Steel Rat books based on this. My teen years became full of harry Harrison and I do not regret a thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 1/3/2012

    " Fun stuff; one of the middle adventures of Slippery Jim de Griz. Kind of a mock heroic novel--Spy Kids meets the Simpsons, maybe, because Jim brings his equally felonious family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dehibberdwrites | 8/10/2011

    " 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 Matt Heavner | 7/19/2011

    " Same attitude.. I fun fast "read"/listen. The narrator is great and adds to the attitude/humor/feel of the book. There is the straight-ahead action, first-person narrative. This book does have a few fun twists with they gray-men and the "morality leaders". Fun in an adolescent way. "

  • 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.
