Print
It was the highest honor to defend the Empire against the dreaded Chingers, an enemy race of seven-foot-tall lizards. But Bill, a Technical Fertilizer Operator from a planet of farmers, wasn't interested in honor-he was only interested in two things: his chosen career, and the shapely curves of Inga-Maria Calyphigia. Then a recruiting robot shanghaied him with knockout drops, and he came to in deep space, aboard the Empire warship Christine Keeler. And from there, things got even worse.

Among American sci-fi writers, Harry Harrison isn't usually ranked up with Bradbury, Dick, and other luminaries, but he's worth checking out. He's perhaps best known for his Stainless Steel Rat series, but he also wrote for "Flash Gordon," and was the author of the novel that became the basis for "Soylent Green." "Bill the Galactic Hero," which was recently turned into a film by cult director Alex Cox ("Repo Man"), has some similarities with other military sci-fi books like "Starship Troopers" and "Ender's Game," but Harrison's book, inspired by "Catch-22" and his own military service, is a satire. It can be a little heavy-handed, with characters named Deathwish and Spleen, but he makes his point. Followed by a sequel.
