Hadn't heard of his passing, but really liked his work. Thank you for the heads-up. Or heads down, metaphorically speaking.

It fits in with my mood, I suppose. August is often not my favorite month. His death was not untimely (thank goodness), and I feel more wistful than anything. He's from a day when authors actually KNEW things.

Slippery Jim was one of my heroes, and I thank Harrison for creating him.

Well, crap. Another great author lost.

I've read some of his works, and they were great for his time. He will be sorely missed.
