About the Author

Harry Harrison (born March 12, 1925 - ) is an American science fiction author best known for his character the Stainless Steel Rat and the novel Make Room! Make Room! (1966), the basis for the film Soylent Green (1973). He is also (with Brian Aldiss) co-president of the Birmingham Science Fiction Group.
Before becoming an editor, Harrison started in the science fiction field as an illustrator, notably with EC Comics' two science fiction comic books, Weird Fantasy and Weird Science. He has used house names such as Wade Kaempfert and Philip St. John to edit magazines, and has published other fictions under the names Felix Boyd, Leslie Charteris, and Hank Dempsey (but see Personal Life below). Harrison also wrote for syndicated comic strips, creating the Rick Random character. Harrison is now much better known for his writing, particularly his humorous and satirical science fiction, such as the Stainless Steel Rat series and the novel Bill, the Galactic Hero (which satirises Robert A. Heinlein's Starship Troopers).

I am now into my 70's and thought I would always be reading books made of paper. Surprise! Now I'm reading by NOOK as well - and I like it. For one thing I can browse through a giant library of e-books and rediscover books I read ages ago. Deathworld by Harry Harrison is one of them. I first read it 50 years ago and liked it just as well today. I recommend it highly to all sci fi fans.

Nice easy sci-fi read, but a little long. In some places it's slow, and it seems to drag sometimes, but it has a lot of action. Not the best sci-fi I've ever read, but pretty good. There is a sequel, Deathworld 2 or The Ethical Engineer. The plot is fairly believable, as are the characters. The 'psi' (psychic) abilities of some of the characters add a nice touch. The element of nature against man os intresting, although somewhat undeveloped.
