mjr wrote:The other was one of my brothers' and a series (3 I think). In the first book the main character was a con man who got invovled with a colony where everyone had become a super warrior. Everything on the planet, plant and animal, was bent on offing the humans. And in one of the sequals he sucks the bad guy into an argument about ethics and ethos solely to get his hands on a book to throw (at the controls?)
The first book has an alien character that is an ambassador or avatar and has this great line where he tells the protagonist about being 'set upon by doodlehums' (hoodlums). Is this enough to ring a bell with anyone?

Sounds like the Deathworld trilogy by Harry Harrison.
