NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED . . .

Captain Pausert thought his luck had finally turned—but he did not yet realize it was a turn for the worse. On second thought, make that a turn for the disastrous*.

Unlucky in love, unsuccessful in business, he thought he had finally made good with his battered starship Venture, cruising around the fringes of the Empire and successfully selling off odd-ball cargoes which no one else had been able to sell. He was all set to return home, where his true love was faithfully waiting for him ... he hoped.

But then he made the fatal mistake of freeing three slave children from their masters (who were suspiciously eager to part with them). They were just trying to be helpful, but those three adorable little girls quickly made Pausert the mortal enemy of his fiancee, his home planet, the Empire, warlike Sirians, psychopathic Uldanians, the dread pirate chieftain Laes Yango—and even the Worm World, the darkest threat to mankind in all of space.

And all because those harmless-looking little girls were in fact three of the notorious and universally feared Witches of Karres. A rollicking novel from the master of space adventure.

The Witches of Karres is a wonderful tale of interstellar adventure. Well written, fast paced and full of non-stop fun, the story follows Captain Pausert as he helps the 3 witch sisters back to their home planet. I have had my copy for twenty years now and still re-read it often. A wonderful story.

Fun, funny, and even safe for the kids, it's a great read. Schmitz is a hidden treasure and I'm glad Eric Flint has compiled his other stories into book form.

This old paperback was given to me from my father so many years ago. He enjoyed it and knew I would as well. Now my copy is rather fragile and worn out from many re-readings so I'm glad I can get a new copy. I enjoy the different characters, and I enjoy the way the Captain starts out rather insipid, but develops nicely into a quite likeable character. The three witches are probably not what one would expect in the traditional witchy sense, but more enjoyable because of that. Plot turns are unpredictable even when you just know it will all end well.
