Er, Paul, you might want to mention "Make Room, Make Room" - as the post reads now it looks like "Soylent Green" was the result of the Stainless Steel Rat.

Ah man, I loved those Stainless Steel Rat books as a kid. I think I might have read BTGH too, that sounds familiar. RIP.

Aww, man... This hurts. The Stainless Steel Rat books were some of my favorites when I was a kid. Not to mention Bill the Galactic Hero and all the others. Damnit.

Sad. "Slippery Jim DiGriz" was one of my favorite fictional characters,back in my highschool days.

In one one Bill the Intergalactic Hero books there was a minor character named Spleen, who torn apart by shrapnel for no other reason than to have Bill exclaim "Someone vented Spleen!"

Can we have a Slippery Jim DiGriz movie now please? R.I.P. HH, and in the book Soylent Green was NOT freaking PEOPLE.

God! The scene where Bill comforts himself by shaking his own hands with the transplant. And the drill sergeant explaining the immense complexity of their jobs as fuse-replacers. Reminds me of every work orientation I've ever had: "It will take years, probably decades for any of you to master this skill..."

What a great (and versatile) writer!
