This was another book I read as a kid and had fond memories of. When I found it at Powell’s books for under $4 I just had to pick it up. Harrison seems to focus on “pulp science fiction” — all of the stuff I have seen from him has been short and easy reading, as is the case with this book. What do you do if you’re stuck on a farming planet, smart, and bored out of your brain? Apparently the answer is to turn to a life of crime for entertainment. That’s what James DeGriz does, and he is a great anti-hero while he’s at it. Great book.
