Chapter 1.

Here comes the fifth book in Harry Harrison series about Jim diGriz entitled 'The Stainless Steel Rat’s Revenge'. Sly Jim is now serving the law and justice as a special agent. In this new job, he fully uses his experience as an intergalactic most wanted. The Rat enjoys his work, not only because it implies constant danger and adventures but also because his wife, Angelina, works with him. Unfortunately, she cannot always accompany him. For instance, this time the Rat needs to intrude into an army of one of the most battalions races in the Galaxy

Harry Harrison The Stainless Steel Rat Stainless Steel Rat-1 Chapter 1 When the office door opened suddenly I knew the game was up. It had been a money-maker-but it was all over. As the cop walked in I sat back in the chair and put on a happy grin. He had the same somber expression and heavy foot that they all have-and the same lack of humor. Stainless Steel Rat-1. A few years back I wrote a small book on the subject-under a nom de plume of course-that was rather well received. My theory is that the aberration is a philosophical one, not a psychological one.

Harry Harrison, 'the Monty Python of the spaceways' declares the Daily Telegraph on the back cover of this Stainless Steel Rat sequel. Well, that's somewhat wide of the mark, but they are ripping yarns. This one's a particularly strong episode in the series, I think, with our hero pitted against a genuinely formidable and sinister foe. And I don't mean his new wife, Angelina

User reviews
Of all of Harry Harrison's works, the Stainless Steel Rat series is for my money the most enjoyable. A sly mixture of SF and humor employing equal quantities of satire and parody, with a memorable character at the heart of the stories.

James Bolivar 'Slippery Jim' diGriz is a gleefully anarchic hero with a strong moral center. 'The Stainless Steel Rat' is the story of how this highly individualistic career criminal of the future is recruited into the Special Corps to track down other, more malevolent law-breakers.

This book was one of the shining gems of my teen reading years. The sequels were even better.

It is a "lock-'em-in-the-hole-and-torture-'em-with-'The-Sound-Of-Music'-24/7" crime that the Stainless Steel Rat has not yet reached the big screen.

As for this Kindle edition. 4 out of 5 stars, thanks to a few niggling transcription errors that should have been picked up by the proof-readers.
Another classic! Stainless Steel Rat is a great series and this is another installment, complete with a few cold war references, wonderful characters and a thrilling plot. The audible version is recorded very well and the performance is excellent.
I just read the news today that Harry Harrison just passed away at the age of 87, which means it's a very sad day indeed for the science fiction community. I've been waiting for many years for the original three Stainless Steel Rat books to be released in e-book format (I had one of the original Sony Readers), so after reading today's news, I was reminded to look once again. Lo and behold, here they are! The Stainless Steel Rat, The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge, and The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World, all finally available in electronic form!

I have very fond memories of reading (and re-reading) these wonderfully entertaining books when I was quite young, delighted by their smart-alecky, irreverent narrative style that Mr. Harrison never quite duplicated as sharply in the other Stainless Steel Rat stories written years later. Remarkably, I'm finding they can still make me laugh out loud. Many of the supporting characters are two dimensional, cartoon-character-like dullards (it's always been clear that Mr. Harrison had little regard for the military, for example) that make these such great escapist entertainment. Also, the notion of a bad guy with a high sense of morality about never hurting his "victims" too seriously made "Slippery Jim diGriz" an interesting anti-hero who was always in complete command of his environment, and yet vulnerable to the bad guys because of these high morals.

I can honestly say that few books have ever entertained me the way these have, and I would warmly recommend them to anyone with a sense of humor, as well as what we used to think of as a sense of adventure.

Although the world has lost a very talented author, it's somehow fitting that these books are finally being made available for all to rediscover and enjoy. They are not to be missed!
happy light
I have long been a Harry Harrison fan. I started reading the Stainless Steel Rat books back in high school (early 1980's) and enjoy them immensely. Great escape fiction, fun, light reading, and entertaining. I have bought copies many times, including used copies, so it is about time to have these electronically.

If you have a teenaged boy who doesn't like reading, a good starting point is the Stainless Steel Rat series. Buy a used copy, or a kindle version, these tales are page turners.
It's a classic and it's fun, but do not expect anything too elaborate or in-depth with either character development or futuristic-science descriptions. Aimed at a male reader with typical viewpoints on females and the expected reactions to the main (male) character, but by no means grossly chauvinistic-- the main woman is smart in Harrison's S.S.R. series, but she falls into a typical pattern that has become a stereotype for many of Harrison's (and similar writer's) books.

Overall: a quick, fun read that doesn't demand too much cerebrally.
I read this book when I was a kid and reading it again I enjoyed it more. What I enjoy most is the clever unfolding of the story, the confidence of the character and how he dealt with or struggled with his weaknesses. It is interesting to see what the author envisioned as a future technology.
Just a good old fashioned romp through the galaxy with our old friend Slippery Jim. If you want a serious look at the political process in science fiction read another book. If you want to just let go and enjoy some lighthearted space opera Harrison is usually a good choice. This book is no exception.
Harry's SSR series is one of my favorites. It's hard to put down. Full of humor and the unexpected :)
