The Stainless Steel Rat Series|
This is Jim diGriz's 'coming of age' story: in it, he loses his virginity and. presumably, by joining the army, his innocence. The grotesque sergeants of Harrison's Bill, the Galactic Hero and Planet Story are again present, and under the adventure story is a serious anti-military message. There is a parody too of Isaac Asimov's recent novels in the Foundation/Robot series.
Dedication: This book is for Rog Peyton and all the Brum gang.
