His website (harryharrison.com) is reporting that that he passed away yesterday from unknown causes.

He was one of my favorite authors simply because, while he was broadly a Scifi writer, his body of work was so eclectic. Personally, I'll always have a soft spot for The Stainless Steel Rat and Bill, the Galactic Hero, but I also fondly remember The Deathworld Trilogy, which was as dark as the first two were light. I guess I'll be reading some Harrison during sustained silent reading in my classes for the next few weeks.

Ad Astra, Mr. Harrison.

I'm a big Neil Gaiman fan (the novels, never got into the comics), but this statement disappoints me. Some may say I'm splitting hairs here, but there's no guarantee that if Adams were alive he'd write a "Douglas Adams Hitchhiker's book.
