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.

HASH(0xa75efa68) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa7836f78) out of 5 stars Great, significant science fiction from a master of the craft March 14 2013
By David Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
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!
