ONLY HUMANITY'S TWO-FISTED
DIPLOMAT CAN SAVE U5 NOW !
"... into the chaotic Galactic political scene, the CDT emerged to carry forward the ancient diplomatic tradition . . : Corps diplomats displayed an encyclopedic grasp of the nuances of Extra-Terrestrial mores asset against the labyrinthine socio-politico-economic Galactic context..."
—Official History of the Corps Diplomatique, AD 2940 NOT! What they really had was Retief! Ignore the official version—in these pages is the real story of how Retief tied the bad guys' eye-stalks in knots, and made the Galaxy safe for humanity.
|Publisher's Note: The stories and novel herein have previously appeared in parts in Envoy and New Worlds, Galactic Diplomat, and Retief's War. This is the first unitary edition.
"Some of the funniest; cleverest, and most (unfortunately) realistic stories ever written about life at the sharp end of international relations. You're about to have fun."
"A James Bond figure among helpless bureaucrats . : . adventure tales that are brisk, light and sardonic. . .
. satirically wild SF adventures . . . improbable plot twists and slapstick action:"
. . . zany humor and puns leaven the action; and, of course, Retief carries the day. Fans of the peerless diplomat will want to get their hands on his latest assignment."
