What a bargain. 37p for eleven stories (some novel length) by a classic writer. I cant buy a small bar of chocolate for that price! I haven't read them all yet, but the first few were enough to give this a solid 5* rating.
Traditional sci-fi at its best in the style of White, Heinlein, and Asimov. Great writers. (Now I just need to find a Megapack of E.E. Doc Smiths Lensman series!)

A Mixed Bag

Some of the stories here are showing their age , but there are a couple of gems that stand out (normally involving robots). Even though Harrison is capable of brilliance (e.g. The Stainless Steel Rat), a large chunk of the content here failed to grab me (either the characters weren't engaging enough or there was a lack of a 'wow factor'). Yet the Long Arm of the Law is a particularly entertaining story (even though I've read it else where) and there is even a short story that became p

For the price, this was a really good investment. Although I think it's a bit of a cop-out having Planet of the Damned and Sense of Obligation in one pack, Harrison's got loads more stories which would've fitted better.

The short stories are all worth a read. I'm very fond of Arm of the Law and The Velvet Glove, and the Repairman is fun, too. The Misplaced Battleship is a nice intro to Jim, and Harrison really lucked out when he expanded that character. It was fascinating to see DinAlt because of

Adventure and Snark

Lots of great Harrison here, including the magazine version of two of the"Deathworld" novels. Only one short "Stainless Steel Rat" stories, but most of those are still in print elsewhere. For those unfamiliar with Harrison don't let the note in the introduction that says he was a man of the Left scare you- He wrote in a time when the American Left was still anchored in reality. (Yes, I know that sounds odd when talking about science fiction.) Try it, you'll like it!

I read all the Stainless Steel Rat stuff when I was a teenager. Loved it then and saw this megapack eBook on Amazon for, I think, 33p or something. Couldn't resist. It's still great stuff. Fast paced writing, doesn't take itself too seriously, but compelling characters nevertheless. Definitely a 'Classic of Science Fiction' as the title suggests.

A good read

There are only ten books as Planet of The Dammed and Sense of Obligation are the same book with a different name. I have never read a bad book written by Norton and this book with this many stories is a bargain. However it annoys me that the people who put it togather did not even skim the stories or they would have caught the duplication.

Good ideas but sometimes too wordy

For me a good story moves to an end and is not dragged out. Here the story's at times are just like that but otherwise to end but then continue

A bargain collection of some classic SF from one of the great names in the genre. Many I had read before, years ago, and I thoroughly enjoyed re-visiting them. Others were new to me, but just as good. Excellent reading.

Same stories

The story Planet of the Damned was in this book twice. What a ripoff. I like Harry Harrison books and this had a few good stories.

Great classic scifi.

This pack has some of Harrison's best. The stories are examples great early science fiction. A must read for any classic SciFi fan.

No Bill or stainless steel rat but...

It was nice to read some less mainstream work.

Aside from two different versions of one story, a good read.
