"Harrison was best known for his "The Stainless Steel Rat" series, starring the free-spirited anti-hero Slippery Jim DiGriz, a quick-witted conman who travels the universe swindling humans, aliens and robots alike. His 1966 work, "Make Room! Make Room!" a sci-fi take on the horrors of overpopulation inspired the 1973 film "Soylent Green" starring Charlton Heston."
One of the great old school SF writers.

He was also a warm-hearted and witty raconteur. I'm glad that I was able to meet him at a convention and speak with him personally.

Sad to hear, I only got to read or two of the Stainless steel rat series, but I still have a soft spot for the "Technicolour time machine"! RIP Harry
