"Wholly absorbing ... a wonderful rollercoaster thrill."

Imagine an empire of the far future, dictatorial, proud, all-conquering, whose citizens could defy it at will by merely entering a store and buying a gun! The guns would be super-weapons that the Empire couldn't duplicate or defeat. — and the stores would be impregnable fortresses open to everyone except soldiers and policemen!

That's the situation of THE WEAPON SHOPS OF ISHER, brilliant, paradoxical, and intensely exciting.
