On Twitter this morning (15 August 2012), I found the sad news that Harry Harrison has died. Harrison was the author of the Stainless Steel Rat series and of Make Room! Make Room!, the book that was the basis for the movie, Soylent Green. If you’re not familiar with his writing, you’ve missed out on a treat. (And Nick, if you’re reading this, give me back the book that I loaned you!) He shows us that the truth is often askew to the “normal” world, and we need more authors like him.
