Harry Harrison 87 died today in Britain, no details are available. Harrison best known for his Stainless Steel Rat series and the novel Make Room, Make Room which became the film Soylent Green has been a prolific author of science fiction since the 50’s.
I first discovered Harrison in the early 70’s when I started reading his Deathworld series which he started in the 1960’s. He was the first author that I went out of my way to find more of his books to read. Harrison was a master of satire as seen in Bill the Galactic Hero, Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers and his most famous The Stainless Steel Rat series.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this time.
