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 probably have no business starting this thread considering I only read 2 books this week, but diminished budget or no, Amazing Spider-Man 566 was pretty interesting, although I must have missed when Daredevil was revealed as Matt Murdock.
