Here’s a cover which Harry Harrison mentions occasionally because there seems to be something not quite right about the Rat’s gun…🙂

    Not just the gun – which reminds me more of a hair drier – I’d say. The uniform and that helmet(?) and wrist-watch-thingy look interesting and futuristic. The pose of the Rat is nice too, but I just cannot see Jim in that face. I think he looks too old on that cover.
    And the way the eyes look isn’t the energy I imagine the SSR has. Looks more melancholic.

    Slippery Jim looks like Man About The House’s Richard O’Sullivan in this pic.

    I think the sight on his gun is what makes it look a little odd…it’s not exactly aligned to the barrel, is it?
