    2. A cavalry of pigs Love it I read this with a huge grin throughout so clever So funny I ve not read much sci fiction, finding sometimes that the plot can get bogged down in overly technical descriptions So it was a relief to find this hilarious book reads like a secret agent Get Smart episode with undercover agents aided by pigs and robots, that just happens to be set against an outer space backdrop The first half The Men From P.I.G Porcine Interstellar Guard is my favorite of the two tales foll [...]

    4. Harry pulls off two fast and lightly comical planetary tales in his usual matter of fact style Both stories are linked by their subject matter of inhospitable colonies intercepted by an agent I found the Men from P.I.G to be keeping with Harry s gift for galactic absurdity but all in all both books provided an entertaining read.


    5. Highly readable, quick to get through.The Men From PIG is the superior of the two 60 page stories, some real flashes of genius and originality.The second story is readable too Overall, worth a read.
