Russell has a wonderful and unique sense of humor. This is a priceless picture of one of the special authors of the "Golden Age". These stories will stay with you for many years.

Excellent Short Stories you won't find anywhere else (unless you kept all your Analog's like I did).

Endless entertainment Sept. 2 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A wonderful collection of stories that you'll dip into over and over. Russell's social and political concerns (freedom, equality, social justice) are combined with clever, witty stories that use the SF genre without getting bogged down in science.

Great, significant science fiction from a master of the craft March 14 2013

I was first exposed to Eric Frank Russell in 'Wasp'. After reading that book, I began to delve into his other works. I have to say that I've never been disappointed in his work. He combines good hard science, reasonably presented, with humorous situations and great plot development to deliver a very entertaining product that will hold your interest until the end. Highly recommended!

Eric Frank Russell is a legend in SF circles and even I, who don't normally like short stories, found these fun to read.
