Description

A stainless steel rat for a stainless steel world …

Meet Slippy Jim, aka The Stainless Steel Rat, aka James Bolivar DiGritz. A man of many names and many talents … all of which add up to make one of the greatest con men of all time.

Charming, quick-witted, physically fit, a master of disguise, a skilled liar, an accomplished bank robber and exceptionally talented at breaking and entering, he’s everything a master thief should be. He’s also about to be caught, turned, and sent back out onto the streets as part of the Special Corps.

Join the adventure in this omnibus edition of the first three Stainless Steel rat adventures: The Stainless Steel Rat, The Stainless Steel Rat’s Revenge, and The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World.

Publisher Review

Endlessly inventive and studded end to end with laugh-out-loud hilarity. What Terry Pratchett has done for fantasy, Harry Harrison did resoundingly for SF. His Stainless Steel Rat storms the barricades of po-faced Golden Age SF with laughing gas grenades and rams an explosive charge right up its complacent rock-ribbed arse. -- Richard Morgan Truly breathtaking -- Times Literary Supplement The Monty Python of the spaceways -- Daily Telegraph Fast-moving and very funny -- Evening Standard
