A sequel to the author's Bill, the Galactic Hero, published over 20 years ago, this book is the first of a new series of novels featuring Bill. With two right arms, an artificial foot, and a set of surgically implanted tusks, Bill sets out to find the source of Chinger-controlled metal dragons.

After reading some of the series previously, I found the readers representation of the characters a little whiney. The story us also a little too silly.
I picked this book because I love Harry Harrison's stainless steal rat. It had parts that were fun but I think it tried to be a little too cute. What worked in the stainless steel rat was more raw and uncultivated here. The humor was lowbrow in fact so lowbrow that sometimes it really was funny. With this being the first in the series I am 50/50 on the fence whether I'll continue with the next book.
The Hank books are much better than these.
Not sure, remembered the Bill stories being better.
He is excellent.
