Brion Brandd used this gift to win the Twenties, an annual physical and mental competition among the best and smartest people on Anvhar. But scarcely able to enjoy his victory, Brandd is swept off to the hellish planet Dis where he must use his heightened sense of empathy to help avert a global nuclear holocaust by negotiating with the blockading fleet, traversing the Disan underworld, and cracking the mystery of the savagely ruthless magter.Summary by Great Plains.
Great fun, classic scifi. Harry Harrison always delivers. I had to laugh at the book cover...once you read the story you will see how hilarious it is. A story filled with likable people who have good character, and do the right thing. The alien planet's ecology and the inhabitants' adaptations were realistic and unique.
