This is also one of my favorites and I try to read it at least once a year. I think its the best example of his early idealism and honest social criticism that made it attractive to me. Other early stories of this type had the following characteristics 1.) They involved faulty social systems. 2.) The heroes were usually unimportant or middle class individuals who were emotionally innocent i.e. they didn't initially recognize good from evil until they were usually drafted by circumstances into becoming heros. Other early stories of this style that I can remember are 1.) The Blue World-"Sklar Hast" 2.) Dodkins Job- Dodkin 3.) Though he wasn't poor he was a victim of his Social System- The Grayyven Warlock in "To Live Forever". There are no doubt more, but I can't remember them. I enjoyed them all and reread them periodically!
