The Hero (1971) by George R. R. Martin

A short but sweet story from the early writing days of George R. R. Martin. Martin shows his gift for quick, effective, yet deep characterisation here, and the story is also really neat conceptually. Has a lot of the interesting, tricky moral situations he’d later be known for too.

I give it three hrangans, and a thousand worlds.
