Today's random featured guest:Harry Harrison

Harry Harrison

The author of - to date - almost sixty novels and over a hundred short stories, Harry Harrison is one of the world's most popular and best-loved science fiction writers.

He was drafted in 1943, on his eighteenth birthday, and was trained as a power-operated turret and computing gunsight specialist. He left the army in 1946, having been promoted to sergeant.

His forthcoming work includes 50 in 50, a collection of fifty short stories from the fifty years Harry has been writing.

As a writer he is second to none, as a convention guest he is always popular and entertaining, and as a person he is warm, intelligent and humorous.
