Planet of the Damned
by Harry Harrison
Publisher: Bantam Books 1971
Number of pages: 289
"Planet of the Damned" is classic science fiction and a coming of age story. The hero, Brion, is a young man given his first opportunity to prove his worthiness by trying to save Dis, a horrible planet that seems hell bent on self destruction. Harrison's imagination fills the page with sweeping scenery, even though the book checks in at a relatively snappy 160 or so pages. It is proof that epic science fiction does not need to go one for many volumes ala L. Ron Hubbard.

Fine example of a free on-line science fiction novel. The stories reimagine classic science fiction themes with a quirky style and a cast that includes a smart-mouthed cat, a boy-crazy Artificial Intelligence, a warrior-artist, and a sardonic ghost.

On the colony world of Greyermede, the populace had grown discontented with rule from an aloof and distant Terran overlord. So began the first stirrings that would explode into the most ancient of human dreams. Great science fiction novel.
