ZAZ: Are the late Stainless Steel Rat books any good? The last one I read, in the 1990s, was not very good. Not as bad as Keith Laumer's late work (after his stroke), but not Harrison-in-his-prime either.
tomWright: Been a long time since I read anything by him, which is a shame as I remember enjoying them, even if I do not remember them.Think I'll download a bunch onto the Kindle. I am sure his survivors will appreciate it.
muchrooms: I also has a sad. Time to dust off my Stainless Steel Rat books and try them again. Used to love those books! How's Deathworld, anyone who's read it?
Memoryalpha: Oh, now that sucks, he was one of my favorite authors. Only a hand full of decent authors left now./sigh
MaudlinMutantMollusk: muchrooms: I also has a sad. Time to dust off my Stainless Steel Rat books and try them again. Used to love those books! How's Deathworld, anyone who's read it?In a word: outstanding/pure space-opera at it's finest, and Harry at the top of his form
Joe_diGriz: The Stainless Steel Rat books were a large part of my childhood, and the inspiration for my username here and elsewhere.The Bill the Galactic Hero series was silly, but still a fun turn-off-the-brain read.Time to figure out where all of those books got packed...
KrmtDfrog: dangit, all my favorite childhood authors are dying on me :(
