Bill, The Galactic Hero (Bill, The Galactic Hero, #1)Bill, The Galactic Hero by Harry Harrison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I simply had to revisit this series after recently come down from my Stainless Steel Rat binge.

For one, the humor is a bit more biting in this one. Satire? Absolutely. A bit catch-22 while dunking on Starship Troopers and having a jab at Trantor's city planning. (Foundation, ya'll!)

But best of all, this mid-sixties book lampoons all the rah, rah military, revolutionary leaders, bureaucracy, and plain-ole-stupidity. It's fast, has a light touch, and speeds through all those baddies like a bullet through paper.

Just be careful of winding up with two right hands. :)
