The Pirates of Ersatz

by Murray Leinster

4 ratings, 2 reviews

Bron is the offspring of infamous space pirates but instead of following in the family footsteps he decides to become an electronic engineer. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get out, something pulls him back in. This is a tongue-in-cheek space adventure along the lines of the Stainless Steel Rat by Harry Harrison. It was originally published in the FEB-APR issues of Astounding Science Fiction in 1959.

Awesome story & excellent narration. Would highly recommended as a lighthearted plot with thoughtful undertones. A unique view on society & mankind from a million light years away...
