It's a fun romp.4/5(78). This book manages to poke fun at just about every novel or movie ever written or produced about starships, starship troopers, or galactic empires. In fact, this book manages to poke fun at novels and movies that were written long **after** Bill the Galactic Hero was published/5(4).

But even with my bias, Bill the Galactic Hero is a fine piece of political sci-fi. Harry Harrison's book is not so much an anti-war manifesto as it is an anti-ridiculousness manifesto. There was a death in my family this week, so reading a funny sci-fi book was both a good and bad idea/5.

For all the years that BILL had served in the Troopers, with all the hard beds, hard heads and no creds, any booze on offer was probably embalming fluid, or worse/5.

Bill is a farmboy on a small backward agricultural planet who is drugged, hypnotised, then shanghaied into the Space Troopers and sent to recruit training under a fanged instructor named Deathwish Drang.

After surviving boot camp, he is transferred to active duty as a fuse tender on the flagship of the space fleet in battle with the Chingers, a small reptilian race. It took Harry Harrison nearly 40 years to write a sequel to his underrated anti-war satirical novel, "Bill the Galactic Hero", and, while it's not nearly as clever, scathing, and apropos as the original, "Bill the Galactic Hero: The Planet of the Robot Slaves" is still humorous and entertaining/5.

Bill, the Galactic Hero is written by Harry Harrison who is also the author of Deathworld, Make Room. Make Room. (filmed as Soylent Green), the popular Stainless Steel Rat books, and many other famous works of SF.3/5(8). It was the highest honor to defend the Empire against the dreaded Chingers, an enemy race of seven-foot-tall lizards.

But Bill, a Technical Fertilizer Operator from a planet of farmers, wasn't interested in honor-he was only interested in two things: his chosen career, and the shapely curves of Inga-Maria Calyphigia. Then a recruiting robot shanghaied him with knockout drops, and he came to in.

Bill, The Galactic Hero. Harry Harrison was a genius. The way he managed to use absurdity, satire and slapstick humour to talk about some pretty grim subjects is nothing short of remarkable. Way before Pratchett, Holt, Adams and Naylor, Harrison was creating some of the funniest books on the planet.5/5.

The Bill, the Galactic Hero book series by multiple authors includes books Bill, the Galactic Hero, Bill, the Galactic Hero: The Planet of the Robot Slaves, Bill, the Galactic Hero: On the Planet of Bottled Brains, and several more.

"Bill, the Galactic Hero" by Harry Harrison is a quirky, funny, and complex storyline that is enigmatic, imaginative, and original. I don't ever remember reading a story like this before, it's quite simply one-of-a-kind which to my mind makes it amazing and remarkable in every way.4/5(55).
