Fiction, Science Fiction

Slippery Jim diGriz is out for revenge on the captain whose actions led the Bishop to his death. The problem is that this guy is not a lowly captain but the general of an army who is launching an interstellar attack. To get close to him, Jim has to pretend to be a member of the community... and then he gets drafted. What follows is a typical farce in which Slippery Jim is staying one bit ahead of pursuit, especially as he finds himself helping the Space Navy to track this horrible man down. These novels are just for fun and should not be read as anything but silly.
