‘Take that you Alpha Centaurian swine!’ Carter Thoris grated through his clenched teeth as…he fired a burning laser beam into the armored thorax of the Captain.

His body said it for him, arrogant, tall, heavily muscled, bronzed and nude under the transparent atmosphere suit. He was breathing lightly and normally, and his face never changed expression as he looked at her desperately heaving breast.
1964H. HarrisonHow the Old World Died in Galaxy Oct. 83/1
When a robot was finished building another robot he activated him with a magnetic copy of his own brain tape and the new robot went to work doing the same thing.

Hautamaki pointed at the sky above them, at the star-filled sweep of the Milky Way, burning with massed stars. ‘There, far out there on the other side of the core, roughly half way around the lens of the galaxy.’
1960H. HarrisonDeathworld in Astounding Science Fact & Fiction Feb. 136/2
The talkers must have well-developed psi facilities, that was obvious now. There is no barrier of race or alien form when two creatures share each other’s emotions. Empathy first, so there would be no hatred or fear.
1960H. HarrisonMisplaced Battleship in Astounding Science Fact & Fiction Apr. 100/1
There were no witnesses to the tragedy, but a number of monitor stations had picked up the discharge static of a large energy weapon being fired.
1970H. HarrisonNova One Introd. p. ix
Some of the more enthusiastic science fiction aficionados tend to overstate the claims of this medium. Modern SF definitely does not date back to the second century and Lucian of Samosata, or even to the Gothic and fantastic novels of the last century. It has roots there, of course, just as it has roots in all fiction, being a part of the greater main of fiction.

There was no mechanical propulsion visible, but the sphere came swooping up towards their ship where it swung in orbit above the golden planetoid. The sphere stopped, just outside the ship and clearly visible from the viewports, bobbing in a small arc. ‘Some sort of force beam,’ Hautamaki said, ‘though nothing registers on the hull instruments.’
1981H. HarrisonPlanet of No Return 111
A small red light that had been blinking on the rear of the holocamera changed to green, indicating that the development cycle was complete. Brion took out the roll of film and slipped it into the holder of the projector. When he switched it on a jagged wall of metal instantly appeared in the opening between the trees. It floated there, against all reason, a holographic projection indistinguishable from the real thing.
1993H. HarrisonRepairman in H. Harrison Stainless Steel Visions (1993) 89
I have repaired hyperspace beacons from one arm of the galaxy to the other and was sure I had worked on every type or model made.
1968H. HarrisonFuture of the Future in Amazing Stories July 5/1
I would like to suggest that ‘inner space’ can be translated as ‘subjective’ and is no more complex than that. Ballard is not the only one to write subjective science fiction.
1963H. Harrison in Analog Science Fiction/Fact July 25/2
‘I have killed the jump control so we can’t get to another star. However, there’s nothing wrong with our space drive, so we can make a landing on one of the planets—you saw for yourself that there is at least one suitable for habitation.’ ‘Where I will fix the jump drive and continue the voyage to Cassylia. You will have gained nothing.’

They were all in the control area when the bell pinged softly and they broke through, back into normal space. Here, at the galactic rim, most of the stars were massed to one side.
1965H. HarrisonBill, Galactic Hero (1966) 92
You just can’t feed all those carbon and hydrogen atoms into a sun and get away with it. The thing has gone nova, and I hear that they didn’t manage to evacuate some bases on the inner planets completely.
1960H. HarrisonDeathworld in Astounding Science Fiction Feb. 131/2
You are from off-world, that I know. No junkman would have lifted a finger to save my life. You are the first off-worlder my people have ever known and for that you are doubly welcome.

This stripped away the surface plastic that covered the far harder plasteel of the flexible saw inside.
1960H. HarrisonDeathworld in Astounding Science Fiction Jan. 26/1
I'm sure the Cassylians don’t want to advertise their bad sportsmanship, so there won’t be anything as crude as a roadblock. But the port will be crawling with every agent they have. They know once the money gets off-planet it is gone forever.
1989H. HarrisonBill the Galactic Hero: Planet of the Robot Slaves 129
Fighting Devil hummed to itself as the sky lightened in the west—the planet of Usa rotated backward—as it reloaded all its weapons and charged up the ray projectors.
1965H. HarrisonBill Galactic Hero (1977) 86
Bill stepped from the slideway at the nearest elevator while the old man and his voice vanished into the vapour, and…began flipping furiously through his Floor Plan.
1972H. HarrisonCast-Iron Rat in Worlds of If Feb. 85/1
How had they known what was going to happen? They knew because some time-hopper had read the newspapers after the event then had jumped back in time to give the warning.
1970H. HarrisonFinest Hunter in World in Prime Number (1975) 74
‘You of course realize, Mr. Lamb, that not one hunter has ever bagged a Venusian swamp-thing?’ Godfrey Spingle spoke into the microphone, then shoved it toward the other man. ‘Indeed I do. I’ve read all the records and studied all the reports. That is why I am here on Venus. I have been called the finest hunter in the world and, to be perfectly honest, I would rather enjoy being called the finest hunter in two worlds.’
