The other didn\'t speak—he was surely one of the officials—and Brion could sense his outraged anger. He must have drawn his gun, because the other man said quickly, "Put that away.

The Misplaced Battleship

Harry Harrison

Science Fiction / Fantasy

Novelist Christopher Priest wrote in an obituary: Harrison was an extremely popular figure in the SF world, renowned for being amiable, outspoken and endlessly amusing. His quickfire, machine-gun delivery of words was a delight to hear, and a reward to unravel: he was funny and self-aware, he enjoyed reporting the follies of others, he distrusted generals, prime ministers and tax officials with sardonic and cruel wit, and above all he made plain his acute intelligence and astonishing range of moral, ethical and literary sensibilities.

"I suppose you didn\'t enjoy using the maser-projector either, nor threatening to cook holes in me. For a cop you seem to be very tender hearted." "I did it only to save your friends. I did not want them to get hurt." "Get hurt!" Jason roared with laughter. "Space-cop, don\'t you have any idea what Pyrrans are like, or what kind of a setup you were walking into? Don\'t you realize that I saved your life--though I really don\'t know why. Call me a natural humanitarian. You may have a swollen head and a ready trigger-fin

When one of them breaks down, it is never an accident and repairing the thing is never a matter of just plugging in a new part."
