The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Eric Frank Russell - Blue Tyson

Eric Frank Russell was an author of half a dozen or so science fiction novels and a large number of short stories, which have been collated into double figure collections and omnibus books. While he is the author of fine stories like Dear Devil and Allamagoosa, he does have some subgenre relevant work, but I have not read his novels or many of his short stories. However, the stories like those found in Men, Martians and Machines were wretched and not worth bothering with.
