Galactic Effectuator

by Jack Vance
Release date: 1980
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

The title is an editorial invention for the collected Miro Hetzel stories: ”Freitzke's Turn” (1977) and ”The Dogtown Tourist Agency” (1975).

Meet Miro Hetzel, Galactic Effectuator. He's part gentleman, part detective, part fraud and his trail of exploits cuts through some of the most improbable civilisations in the univers. Join him in a triop to the planet Maz, whose natives are so fierce that they'll fight three battles before lunch and then dine on the enemy – a planet that only a man with Miro Hetzel's steely nerve would dare to visit at all.
