Jim DiGriz is caught during one of his crimes and recruited into the Special Corps. Boring, routine desk work during his probationary period results in his discovering that someone is building a battleship, thinly disguised as an industrial vessel. In the peaceful League no one has battleships anymore, so the builder of this one would be unstoppable. DiGriz’ hunt for the guilty becomes a personal battle between himself and the beautiful but deadly Angelina, who is planning a coup on one of the feudal worlds. DiGriz’ dilemma is whether he will turn Angelina over to the Special Corps, or join with her, since he has fallen in love with her.

The Rat, disguised in the most hideous combination of alien physical features, is sent into the centre of the aliens’ stronghold, where he finds himself the object of desire among the aliens. His task is to stop the aliens, who plan to wipe out every human in the universe.

The Stainless Steel Rat for President

This time the Special Corps has given the Rat a daring assignment – liberate a backward tourist planet from the clutches of an aging dictator.

Stars and Stripes Forever

On November 8, 1861, a U.S. navy warship stopped a British packet and seized two Confederate emissaries on their way to England to seek backing for their cause. England responded with rage, calling for a war of vengeance. The looming crisis was defused by the peace minded Prince Albert. But imagine how Albert’s absence during this critical moment might have changed everything. For lacking Albert’s calm voice of reason, Britain now seizes the opportunity to attack and conquer a crippled, war torn America. Ulysses S. Grant is poised for an attack that could smash open the South’s defenses. In Washington, Abraham Lincoln sees a first glimmer of hope that this bloody war might soon end. But then disaster strikes: English troops have invaded from Canada. With most of the Northern troops withdrawn to fight the new enemy, General William Tecumseh Sherman and his weakened army stand alone against the Confederates. Can a divided, bloodied America defeat England, or will the United States cease to exist for all time?

Stars and Stripes in Peril

‘HARRY HARRISON IS ONE OF SCIENCE FICTION S MOST PROLIFIC AND ACCOMPLISHED CRAFTSMEN.’ The New York Times Book ReviewIn the midst of Civil War, a stunned North and South join forces to combat a sudden attack of British troops. Though the Americans are victorious, three years later a new threat emerges. Her Majesty’s Army is massing for a possible attack through Texas. Into the gauntlet Lincoln sends his chosen angel of death, General Ulysses S. Grant while his top soldiers, including Robert E. Lee and William Tecumseh Sherman, plan the most daring naval invasion ever launched: an assault on British soil itself. Stars and Stripes in Peril is the new masterwork from one of the world s most provocative authors. Venturing beyond a fascinating question of what if? Harry Harrison brilliantly examines the people and passions that make up nations both great and small and shows how technology and politics had the power to shape history s first great World War…
half a century before it began…
‘Lovers of novels of alternate history hold Harry Harrison in high regard and his latest book can only enhance that esteem.’ Abilene Reporter News

Stars and Stripes Triumphant

In England, Irish born citizens are being herded into prison camps. On the high seas, a furious British Navy is seizing American cargo ships bound for Europe. And on the Thames, a new weapon of unparalleled destructive force is sailing toward an impregnable city spearheaded by a daring act of espionage. For U.S. president Abraham Lincoln, Britain’s Queen Victoria, Lord Palmerston, and a loyal opposition, a day of reckoning is at hand…
and so is history s most astounding battle. Harry Harrison s series of alternate history, based on the U.S. Civil War, stands as a provocative work of imagination, drama, and brilliant historical insight. Now in the thrilling finale, Harrison tells a stunning, action packed story of America s rapidly growing military might being locked, loaded, and aimed at the heart of England itself. For the two countries that share a language and a heritage, the conflict began at the dawn of the U.S. Civil War. Just as America was about to tear itself to pieces, Britain itself committed an act of war by seizing a U.S. packet ship. In retaliation, the Confederate States rejoined the Union and took up arms against England. Repulsing a British invasion, and defeating her majesty s army first in Canada, then in Mexico, then in Ireland, American pride and power swelled. Britain, like a wounded lion, howled in shame and anger. Now, Queen Victoria s empire is more dangerous than ever before, turning against the Irish on her own soil, flexing her naval might, and all but forcing a weary President Lincoln to authorize the next step in a headlong journey toward war.A tale of daring and strategy, Stars and Stripes Triumphant explores how arrogance turns superpowers into victims, how regional conflicts can explode into world wars, and how the personalities of a few men and women can change the course of history itself for better or for worse. From the Hardcover edition.

Winter in Eden

Harry Harrison, an acknowledged master of imaginative fiction, broke new ground with West of Eden.

Return to Eden

In West of Eden and Winter in Eden, master novelist Harry Harrison broke new ground with his most ambitious project ever. He brought to vivid life the world as it might have been, where dinosaurs survived, where their intelligent descendants, the Yilan , challenged humans for mastery of the Earth, and where the human Kerrick, a young hunter of the Tanu tribe, grew among the dinosaurs and rose to become their most feared enemy.

She’s been cast out from her kind, under sentence of death, but how long will her banishment last? For her strange attraction to Kerrick has turned into a hatred even more powerful than her instincts an obsession that compels her to hunt down Kerrick and kill him…

The Misplaced Battleship

from the introductory:

‘It might seem a little careless to lose
track of something as big as a battleship…

but interstellar space is on a different scale
of magnitude. But a misplaced battleship
in the wrong hands!
can be most dangerous.’

WHEN it comes to picking locks and cracking safes I admit to no master. The door to Inskipp’s private quarters had an old fashioned tumbler drum that was easier to pick than my teeth. I must have gone through that door without breaking step. Quiet as I was though, Inskipp still heard me. The light came on and there he was sitting up in bed pointing a . 75 caliber recoilless at my sternum.

‘You should have more brains than that, diGriz,’ he snarled. ‘Creeping into my room at night! You could have been shot.’

‘No I couldn’t,’ I told him, as he stowed the cannon back under his pillow. ‘A man with a curiosity bump as big as yours will always talk first and shoot later. And besides none of this pus*syfooting around in the dark would be necessary if your screen was open and I could have got a call through.’

Inskipp yawned and poured himself a glass of water from the dispenser unit above the bed. ‘Just because I head the Special Corps, doesn’t mean that I am the Special Corps,’ he said moistly while he drained the glass. ‘I have to sleep sometime. My screen is open only for emergency calls, not for every agent who needs his hand held.’

‘Meaning I am in the hand holding category?’ I asked with as much sweetness as I could.

‘Put yourself in any category you please,’ he grumbled as he slumped down in the bed. ‘And also put yourself out into the hall and see me tomorrow during working hours.’

He was at my mercy, really. He wanted sleep so much. And he was going to be wide awake so very soon.

‘Do you know what this is?’ I asked him, poking a large glossy pic under his long broken nose. One eye opened slowly.

‘Big warship of some kind, looks like Empire lines. Now for the last time go away!’ he said.

‘A very good guess for this late at night,’ I told him cheerily. ‘It is a late Empire battleship of the Warlord class. Undoubtedly one of the most truly efficient engines of destruction ever manufactured. Over a half mile of defensive screens and armament, that could probably turn any fleet existent today into fine radioactive ash ‘

‘Except for the fact that the last one was broken up for scrap over a thousand years ago,’ he mumbled.

I leaned over and put my lips close to his ear. So there would be no chance of misunderstanding. Speaking softly, but clearly.

‘True, true,’ I said. ‘But wouldn’t you be just a little bit interested if I was to tell you that one is being built today?’

Oh, it was beautiful to watch. The covers went one way and Inskipp went the other. In a single unfolding, in concerted motion he left the horizontal and recumbent and stood tensely vertical against the wall. Examining the pic of the battleship under the light. He apparently did not believe in pajama bottoms and it hurt me to see the goose bumps rising on those thin shanks. But if the legs were thin, the voice was more than full enough to make up for the difference.

The K-Factor

from the introductory: ‘Speed never hurt anybody it’s the sudden stop at the end. It’s not how much change that signals danger, but how fast it’s changing…
.’ WE’RE losing a planet, Neel. I’m afraid that I can’t…
understand it.’ The bald and wrinkled head wobbled a bit on the thin neck, and his eyes were moist. Abravanel was a very old man. Looking at him, Neel realized for the first time just how old and close to death he was. It was a profoundly shocking thought. ‘Pardon me, sir,’ Neel broke in, ‘but is it possible? To lose a planet, I mean. If the readings are done correctly, and the k factor equations worked to the tenth decimal place, then it’s really just a matter of adjustment, making the indicated corrections. After all, Societics is an exact science ‘ ‘Exact? Exact! Of course it’s not! Have I taught you so little that you dare say that to me?’ Anger animated the old man, driving the shadow of death back a step or two. Neel hesitated, feeling his hands quiver ever so slightly, groping for the right words. Societics was his faith, and his teacher, Abravanel, its only prophet. This man before him, carefully preserved by the age re*tarding drugs, was unique in the galaxy. A living anachronism, a refugee from the history books. Abravanel had singlehandedly worked out the equations, spelled out his science of Societics. Then he had trained seven generations of students in its fundamentals. Hearing the article of his faith defamed by its creator produced a negative feedback loop in Neel so strong his hands vibrated in tune with it. It took a jarring effort to crack out of the cycle. ‘The laws that control Societics, as postulated by…
you, are as exact as any others in the unified field theory universe.’ ‘No they’re not. And, if any man I taught believes that nonsense, I’m retiring tomorrow and dropping dead the day after. My science and it is really not logical to call it a science is based on observation, experimentation, control groups and corrected observations. And though we have made observations in the millions, we are dealing in units in the billions, and the interactions of these units are multiples of that. And let us never forget that our units are people who, when they operate as individuals, do so in a completely different manner. So you cannot truthfully call my theories exact. They fit the facts well enough and produce results in practice, that has been empirically proven. So far. Some day, I am sure, we will run across a culture that doesn’t fit my rules. At that time the rules will have to be revised. We may have that situation now on Himmel. There’s trouble cooking there.’ ‘They have always had a high activity count, sir,’ Neel put in hopefully.
