FLUX AND THE TIN ANGEL

Fontana paperback, 1979. Cover painting by Peter Jones.

"TWO COMPLETE NOVELS IN ONE VOLUME - A HEFTY DOSE OF RON GOULART'S OWN SPECIAL BRAND OF COMIC MADNESS 
Ron Goulart writes the wildest and whackiest books in the whole field of science fiction. in FLUX, secret agent Ben Jolson has to sort out the bizarre planet Jaspar where girls and boys are being made into human bombs which explode on contact. Jolson is a member of the galaxy-famous Chameleon Corps and can turn himself into just about anything - a doctor, a lawyer, an Indian chief, a refrigerator. But his task on Jaspar strains even this master of disguise to the limit. 
Bowser is the TIN ANGEL, a wise-cracking bionic dog and top-rated star of 1999's television. But to Bert Schenley, his agent, he's still just a dog - and a constant source of anguish. They go off on tour to California where a guerilla war is in full swing. True to form Bowser doesn't let such a minor distraction grab the headlines from him - even though the rebel fighters are intent on blotting both Bert and Bowser out."
