Author, Harry Harrison died on August 15, 2012, according to his web site.
The first time I heard of Harry Harrison, a friend handed me the book, West of Eden. For two years, Harrison conducted research for this book, interviewing anthropologists, biologists, engineers, linguists, and philosophers.
West of Eden takes a look at a parallel world of what if dinosaurs never became extinct and how they evolved.
Harrison’s work shows a great narrator with a vivid imagination that sends readers on one out of this world scenario after another.
If you are looking to read something totally different and “far out,” I suggest you read one of Harry Harrison’s books.
