Norstrilia - Cordwainer Smith

A little bit of Australian satire in Norstrilia. e.g. Northern Australia. This is the only place in the galaxy that the sheep who produce an immortality product can be raised. This causes Norstrilia to be the richest place in the galaxy.

That sort of money will always cause problems.

The people of Norstrilia are happy as they are, and don't want people coming there, or to go out and take over the universe.

The main character here thinks differently, and hence gets into a ton of trouble, taking his money out into space.

4 out of 5
