10: Slippery Jim diGriz

My Favorite Character

14-01-2023 • 27 mins

Librarian and raconteur Bill Householder has read a lot of books, but the ones he read as a nerdy teen have stuck with him all along, and the dashing, roguish hero of some of those books is "Slippery" Jim diGriz, aka the Stainless Steel Rat. Revisit the silver age of SFF with Bill and Jenn, and for the love of everything shiny, don't soil your caftan!
