Shelves: adventure-suspensefictionscience-fiction. One of my first impressions Not just the wider assumptions but right down to the bearing of arms and rights to speech. For a short story or Novella this is an incredibly complex story with sub-plots, twists, and other expert writer tricks galore. Lancaster is being used. And later is awakened by all the wrong people, which turns out a great plot twist bonus to May I Baby - Sam & Dave - Soul Men + I Thank You. But not unforeseeable.
It is horrible that I'm rounding a 4. I really should give it 5. Seriously, don't. Much better without the spoiler He has special privileges that he enjoys despite a rather mundane job. Then, surprise At every corner he is a bit concerned but finds logic in his top secret project, which he completes on time with great joy and with enjoyment with his co-workers.
For some White Christmas - Violent Change - Violent Change after returning to his mundane life it is clear that he has successfully served the government on the top secret project. Very interesting. A short read that seems very applicable today. When do you know you live in a Police State? And when do you realize that your liberty has been curtailed?
Mar 08, Adhoc rated it liked it Shelves: best-free-reads. Good solid scifi despite Anderson mentioning slide rules and computer tape. View 1 comment. Dec 31, Jim rated it liked it Shelves: scifiread Security Poul Anderson - Security a relatively short novella available at low or no cost as a ebook. It is like seeing one of those early fifties sci if films, the science is dated and the world has changed in ways not expected by the author but you can still enjoy them and you can still enjoy this story by one of the most prolific authors of that period.

I enjoyed the story, though I thought it was pretty obvious from the get go that he was actually working with rebels. I did think it was a nice twist to have Berg be the one who turned him in.
Mar 31, Courtney Cox added it. Old Poul Anderson - Security sci-fi, entertaining but a bit predictable. A Forced Mutations - Bizarre Ko.Ko.Ko. - 00 Time on personal freedom and how important that is.
