Code Duello

    United Planets' spy team included a man who could never lose a bet-but this time the odds were astronomical. Section G, the top secret security unit of United Planets, had a special problem on their hands with the situation on Firenze. The most unusual squad in Section G's history included:
  • A research biologist who could bend steel bars like rubber bands,
  • A middle-aged lady with total total recall,
  • a cowboy who's bullwhip was deadlier than a ray gun,
  • a brazen yound lady acrobat who looked like an eight-year-old kid,
  • a mild young man who never lost a bet in his life,
  • and the best pickpocket that ever lived.

Story Survey

Code Duello by Mack Reynolds

Irene Kasansky said, "He's expecting you. Watch out. The jetsam is flying today." She did things to the bank of orderboxes she had on her desk, even as she clipped out her words. Her deft hands flew, pressing buttons, flicking switches.

Sid Jakes grinned at her. "I've never seen the day," he said, "when you didn't think the jetsam was flying. I hate to say this, Irene, but I think you're a fake. I think you like here at Section G."

She glared at him.

Lee Chang Chu, who stood next to the assistant Section G head, said, "Irene is the most efficient colleague we have."

Irene snorted and snapped into an orderbox: "Well, find him, then!" She flicked it off and glared up at Lee Chang, standing here hardly five feet tall and very antique Oriental in her cheongsam dress. "Let me tell you, Goody Two Shoes, my resignation is in. This efficient colleague has had it. I'm transferring to Statistics."
