Edition : 1st Edition
Octavo, cloth. First edition. "Young country bumpkin Bill is press-ganged into the interstellar army, where in time he learns to relish the ludicrous discipline and brainless camaraderie. An amusing, cod-militaristic romp of a space story which succeeds in taking the mickey out of Heinlein's STARSHIP TROOPERS and other novels of its ilk. Still one of Harrison's most effective works." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 40-1. The novel "as Harrison carefully explains. is an example of 'black humor' directed as 'black satire' against the military, and at the same time is a 'parody' of a novel sympathetic to military life . [It] parodies the enormously popular STARSHIP TROOPERS (1959) written by Robert A. Heinlein, who did not enjoy Harrison's joke." - Stover, Harry Harrison, p. 68. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 4-255. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 294-5. Survey of Science Fiction Literature I, pp. 223-27. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with mild tanning to spine panel. A sharp copy. (#149233). N° de réf. du libraire 149233
