    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.

    Not the stainless steel rat

    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..Show More »

    Bill should know that you never complain in the Troopers. But when his new foot looks like it's turning into something green, scaly, and abundantly clawed, a visit to the medics would seem to be reasonable. But before he can say "Quintiform computer error", he seems to have got himself volunteered again, this time for a suicide mission on Tsuris - the planet nobody ever comes back from.

    Bill's in trouble again. A hideous outer-space infection has transformed one of his feet into a satyr's hoof; he has two right hands; and the nurses at the hospital where he lies recovering from his last escapade are steel robots. But soon he's off again in search of science fiction's greatest clichés.

    Tasteless is right.

    Also juvenile, and incoherent. I won't give it 1 star because every once and awhile a joke does manage to land.
    This book is mostly sizzle and ..Show More »

    Bill - the perfect Starship Trooper: big, brawny, and brainwashed. Possessor of two right arms (impressive when it comes to saluting) and a foot that is threatening to turn into something more suited to being an umbrella stand than anything that could be squeezed into a size 11 sneaker.
