American SF author Harrison dies Wednesday, 15 August, aged 87!
I've read a lot of his Stainless Steel Rat books and a few others-he always wrote with a sense of humour and humanness, and he was also known for creating the book that would become immortalised in the 1973 film Soylent Green about overpopulation.
He was incredibly popular at SF conventions, known for being very open and friendly, and was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.
RIP Harry.....you will be missed!
