On the Planet of Ten Thousand Bars by Harry Harrison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Classy setup for this humorous lambast of SF. I mean, if you're going to be a big dumb military man that has never had leave and you're stuck with a big grey brick for a foot (not really an upgrade from his other big lizard foot,) then I'd personally get really psyched to volunteer for a mission on THE Planet of Ten Thousand Bars.
With a drunk as your expert companion.
Yeeesssss... but of course it goes feet up. Between time-travel hijinx, the Planet of Death, time-nazis, and Aztec gods, we know this working vacation has gone to hell.
I'm seriously liking this later Bill the Galactic Hero novels better in these later stories.
