Order of Stainless Steel Rat Books
Stainless Steel Rat is a series of satirical science fiction novels by American novelist Harry Harrison. The series centers on James Bolivar DiGriz (aka Slippery Jim & The Stainless Steel Rat), an anti-hero, conman and thief. He’s got quick wits, disguises, charm and is an excellent liar. He can easily justify his crimes by claiming he provides society with entertainment and he’s only stealing from places with insurance. Despite all that, he does not enjoy killing.
The Stainless Steel Rat series began in 1961 with the title novel. The final novel in the series is The Stainless Steel Rat Returns, published in 2010 after an 11 year hiatus.
