Harry Harrison was. of course, a superb writer who may be best known as a writer of surprisingly humorous military SF – satirical rather than the kind of humour that Douglas Adams wrote; or you may prefer his more serious straight SF such as Make Room! Make Room!, which was filmed a Soylent Green, or the religious story 'The Streets of Ashkelon'. You might prefer his Deathworld novels or Stainless Steel Rat novels, or the Bill the Galactic Hero series, the later episodes co-written with, amongst others, Robert Sheckley and Jack C. Haldeman. You might, if your Russian, prefer his Return to Deathworld series. Harry was big in Russia!
I had planned to limit this gallery quite severely so that I could get it out over the weekend. But things went a bit wrong and I found myself digging around looking for some of the missing images. However, I knew I was never going to get this out in reasonable time, so it's still a little half-arsed even for the 1970s, and it then rapidly tails off so that none of his later novels are included. I will have to revisit this column at some point and fix it. But it'll do for now. For more information there's the SFE, Wikipedia and Chris Priest's obituary in The Guardian.
No mention of Harry's extensive comic output which, again, I'll have to come back to.
