RIP Harry Harrison

15 Aug

Harry and his writing influenced me when I was quite young, I discovered The Stainless Steel Rat roughly around the age of 10.  Jim was a rebel, something a young boy could look at and think “Wow, he is so bad but so cool!”.

Later in life I also discovered the Bill series which were a lot funnier.

Harry was best known for writing “Make Room, Make Room” which people might know better as Soylent Green.

It’s very sad that Harry never lived to see a Stainless Steel Rat movie but now I hope it happens more than ever.

 

Rest in peace Harry, your stories will stay with us forever.

A Stainless Steel rat runs free in space forever.
