Addendum: One of the things which I hate, which won't bother most, is the ignorance of nearly all writers when it comes to guns. Connell has Rainsford see the General with "a small automatic pistol", then when the General avoids the deadfall he doesn't lose his revolver. This makes as much sense as if Ivan were sometimes a huge Cossack and then became a Bolshoi ballerina.
I first made acquaintance with Northwest Smith [he walks silently in his spaceman's boots] in a collection of three stories far back in my past. The stories are dated, true, but still interesting. It's short, so you haven't lost much if you don't like it, but if you're like me, you'll wish for more, so READ IT.
I like so many here read this in HS and have since read several stories and at least one book with the same plot. The writer has to really be bad who can fail to write a good story based on this plot. I didn't realize how old it is, but other than the Russian it doesn't make a difference. If somehow you haven't read it, do so now. It's one of the classics in literature [with a small "l"].
This title seems to have been withdrawn; it\'s no longer listed at Project Gutenberg. The audiobook is still listed and downloadable.I had this but lost it somehow and now can\'t find it anywherel
