Harry Harrison

And the wheel of life draws to a close over another great one, Harry Harrison. Not of the Golden Age, but the age that followed. I enjoyed many of his books: Captive Universe, the various Deathworld tales, the Stainless Steel Rat stories and more. My brush with him was a brief attempt to purchase (for publication) a SF-RPG that originally had been developed by FASA based on his Deathworld tales.

Obituary by Christopher Priest here. Some of his books as free eBooks here.

Addendum: Harry Harrison on the film version Make Room! Make Room! A roundup of tributes from the Tor Dot Com site.
