Short stories of Jaime Retief, a member of several ambassadorial delegations to various planets. It's made up of the usual tongue-in-cheek tales of pompous incompetent Ambassadors who only manage to do the right thing because of the adventures of Retief and sometimes his immediate boss, Magnan who is partially competent.

RETIEF: Ambassador to Space. by Keith Laumer ‧ RELEASE DATE: Ma That Galactic Diplomat is back befuddling bureaucrats, thwarting his old enemy the Groaci, and in general polishing up planet pitfalls in this series of short stories. Retief is possibly Science Fiction's most humorous, and also invariably triumphant, recurring character; embodying the intelligence and machismo of James Bond (Retief's portrayal on the cover art of some of the books is rather remininiscent of James Coburn as Derek Flint from the Our Man Flint movies) and the wit and behind-the scenes manipulation of P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves/5(7).
