Publisher's Summary

On the planet Pyrrus, human colonists have fought a centuries-old war with the native life forms. These life forms adapt to human tactics and technology, evolving new species so rapidly that natives returning from even brief trips off planet must be carried in protective armor canisters from their ship to the safe buildings, where they will learn of the latest deadly threats. The Ethical Engineer is the second volume in the Deathworld series. It was originally published as a two-part serial in Analog magazine in 1963.

Less Action More Existensialism

The usual great voicing by Christian Rummel and crew brings like to this sci-fi classic. Unlike Deathworld I, a good part of the confrontation in Deatworld II is philosophical / Metaphysical. But still, all-in-all a great job.

Never a dull moment

As always Harry H keeps you on your toes and Christian Rummel's narration is fitting to the flow of the story.
