Warren Peace: Dimensions
Warren Peace Book 2
By Bob Shaw
Warren Peace joined the Space Legion to forget - and forget what it was he wanted to forget. In his quest to find out who he'd been he got turned into an Oscar by a symbiotic alien parasite.
Oscars are invulnerable superbeings, immune to everything and with no need for air, food or drink, let alone sex and drugs and rock'n'roll. Marooned on an airless planet with a whole bunch of them, Warren is bored witless.
Then a chance encounter with a lump of pryktonite turns him back into a human, and Warren embarks on a new career- as a galactic troubleshooter. His first mission takes him (with a couple of Oscars providing the muscle) to a water-covered planet where a company producing a mind-blowing drug is having trouble with its alien work force. It seems they're smuggling alien porn mags on to the planet, and are too...tired to work. Warren sets out to find the solution...
Warren Peace is the second bizarre episode in the series that began with Who Goes Here? By the acclaimed author of Orbitsville and the Ragged Astronauts trilogy.
Bob Shaw (1931 - 1996)
Bob Shaw was born in Belfast in 1931. After working in engineering, aircraft design and journalism he became a full time writer in 1975. Among his novels are Orbitsville, A Wreath of Stars, The Ragged Astronauts and his best-known work Other Days, Other Eyes, based on the Nebula Award-nominated 'Light of Other Days', the story that made his reputation.
