Mixed bag - some good some bad,
This review is from: Jack Glass (Golden Age) (Hardcover)
This book is three stories about Jack Glass, a wanted criminal in a future solar system where a draconian oligarchy rules the space-ways. Glass is rumored to be a terrorist and is certainly anti-authority. He believes that his survival is vital to the survival of the species. And so he has to commit a series of murders. The first tale is of seven convicts marooned on an asteroid and what they will do to survive. One of the convicts is Glass, and what will he do to survive? The second and third tales are linked with the same characters and lead to a chase across the solar system, from Earth to space habitat. The second tale was an Agatha Christie style whodunnit. Deliberately so, and was probably the more interesting of the to because it introduced the nobility of the future. The third was a chase story and was a bit of a bore.
