The Repairman

Book cover
By: (1925-2012)

The Repairman by Harry Harrison is a thought-provoking and engaging science fiction novella that follows the story of a repairman with a unique set of skills. The protagonist is a likable and relatable character, who finds himself caught in a web of politics and power struggles beyond his control.

Harrison does a fantastic job of world-building, creating a future society that feels both familiar and alien at the same time. The technology described in the novella feels realistic and serves as a backdrop for the larger themes of the story.

The plot moves at a brisk pace, keeping the reader engaged from start to finish. The tension builds steadily throughout the novella, culminating in a satisfying and unexpected conclusion.

Overall, The Repairman is a well-written and entertaining read that will appeal to fans of science fiction and dystopian fiction. Harrison's storytelling is top-notch, and his ability to create vivid and imaginative worlds is on full display in this novella. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and engaging read.

Book Description:
This is a collection of 3 of Harry Harrison marvelous early stories that were published in Galaxy, Analog and Fantastic Universe. The Repairman (1958) is a straight fun SF story of a man getting a job done. It is most typical of his later style in series like the Stainless Steel Rat; Toy Shop (1962), a short piece exploring bureaucratic blindness and one ingenious way around it and The Velvet Glove (1956), my favorite for its writing style, fun perspective, sly social commentary on the scene in 1956 and just plain delightful imagination. And he manages to pack excitement and mystery in at the same time.
