Read full description of the books:
Harry Harrison is author of over 40 books, of which Deathworld, originally published in John W. Cambell's Astounding Science Fiction, was 1st. Since then he has won the Nebula Award, the Prix Jules Verne & the Premio Italia. This omnibus edition contains Deathworld & its two sequels, together with an introduction written by him in 1999. Note that Deathworld 2 was originally published in the UK as The Ethical Engineer.
The Deathworld books concern Jason dinAlt, a professional gambler with psi powers who travels the galaxy in search of adventure. In each book he finds it on a different but equally dangerous world. These novels are tough, fast-moving hardboiled pulp thrillers. The future societies & technologies depicted now seem old fashioned, but the Deathworlds are vigorously imagined & convincingly dangerous.
Tho tense & exciting, the trilogy's original impact has lessened due to the sheer number of imitations there have been of these very successful & influential tales. Nevertheless, the first Deathworld novel remains a SF classic & all three books make for gripping reading. This single volume edition represents an essential part of SF history.--Gary S. Dalkin (edited)
