Seven Short Science Fiction Stories by Harry Harrison

ByHarry Harrison

This is a collection of seven fantastic and short science fiction stories by Harry Harrison. The stories include: (1) The Misplaced Battleship (It might seem a little careless to lose track of something as big as a battleship ... ), (2) Arm of the Law (How could a robot—a machine, after all—be involved in something like law application and violence?), (3) Toy Shop (The gadget was strictly, beyond any question, a toy), (4) The Repairman (Being an interstellar trouble shooter wouldn’t be so bad … if I could shoot the trouble!), (5) The K-Factor (Speed never hurt anybody—it's the sudden stop at the end), (6) Navy Day (The Army had a new theme song: "Anything you can do, we can do better!" And they meant anything, ...), and (7) The Velvet Glove (This is a not too distant future where robots—particularly specialist robots who don't know their place—have quite a rough time of it). It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of these timeless stories.
