A treat for fans who weren't able to make it to Octocon this year: Paul's
transcribed his interview with Harry from the convention, which you may find
by clicking here.

Shock! Horror! Surprise! Etc!|
Is there anyone out there who knew that Harry's classic short story "The Streets of Ashkelon" was adapted into a comic strip by none other than legendary artist Brian Bolland? I certainly didn't know, until a couple of weeks ago when I saw the magazine containing the story for sale on eBay.
The Comics chapter has been updated appropriately.

We're currently recovering from Octocon
2001 where an excellent time was had by all. Harry spoke on several
panels, all extremely well attended. For a panel dedicated to Harry's
50-year career as an SF author, Harry was interviewed by Paul Tomlinson,
author of Harry's forthcoming bibliography and most of this website (except
this bit). Paul also conducted a number of private interviews with Harry,
which will shortly be appearing on this site.|
I'll write up a full report in the next day or so, but in the meantime, here is some news: Mel Gibson's production company has renewed their option for the rights to make a movie based on The Technicolor Time Machine. A screenplay for the movie has already been written by legendary Hollywood scribe Marshall Brickman.

Your humble webmasters will be at Octocon 2001
(see above) to chat to Harry and get all the latest news - expect a full
report shortly afterwards.
|2001 10 02||
We've just added a new chapter: At the Movies,
which includes a 1969 article by Harry on the future of SF movies, his
introduction to John Brosnan's book Future Tense, a transcript
of a panel from the 1987 WorldCon, and more!

Amazon.co.uk programs, if you visit those sites by clicking through the
links on this site, they'll pay us a few pennies (or cents) for
everything you buy. If you haven't visited BooksAMillion.com yet, do so
now! It's a great site with a lot of books and some superb discounts!

Okay, folks... We've now updated the translation pages.
Keen observers will notice that the format has changed: Translations
are no longer listed by country, but by language, which should make
things a lot easier for tracking down those elusive editions...
This means that the system update is complete... Hooray! Your humble webmaster is now going for a lie down...
|2001 07 21||
As promised a few days ago, I've completed the updates to the bibliographical
data... Including complete (as far as we know) publication histories and
details of reviews. Enjoy!
That said, there are still a few sections of the website that require further updating, notably the translations pages...
|2001 07 19||
Updated some more bibliographical info - publication histories for all of the
books and short stories are up to date. The reviews will be updated shortly.
Also, changed the Biography pages to reflect the new style.
And not only that, we've just added a brand new chapter: Esperanto!
|2001 07 15||
As promised many moons ago, we've given the bibliographical pages a complete
overhaul. One of the most important changes is that we've merged all of the
book-related chapters with their appropriate biblio pages. Note: the update process
is not yet 100% complete: all of the framework is there, but some of the data
has yet to be updated. This will happen over the next week or so.
|2001 07 04||
Just a quick note: the Bookplates are now sold out!
Many thanks to everyone who bought them: your money goes towards keeping
this website on-line!

overhaul... It should now be a lot easier to navigate!

Remember those elusive forthcoming chapters I mentioned yesterday? Well, one
of them isn't forthcoming any more - it's here! Yes, all you fans of Star
Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers - especially Brian - are in luck!
|2001 06 06||
In addition to our cool new front page, we've just added a basic chapter
listing all the known cover artists in our database. There are, sadly, many
covers for which we don't know the name of the artist: if you can supply
information on any of these, we'd be very grateful!
Click here for the Cover Artists chapter.
On the same note, a few astute fans have noticed that many of our chapters have been listed as "coming soon" for quite some time now. Rest assured that they are indeed forthcoming - unfortunately other work on the site generally takes priority. But we are working on the chapters. Promise.

It's taking us longer to put together the chapter on Harry's comics work than
we'd anticipated, so we've decided to go ahead with what we do have: Click
here to see the chapter as it stands. We'll add the
remaining parts as they are completed.

Remember the "Worst Cover Ever" in our A Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah!
chapter? Well, we've received a very plausible explanation for some of the odder
bits from Andy... Worth checking out (and if anyone has any other thoughts,
feel free to send them along).

50 in 50 will be the definitive collection of Harry Harrison's short stories;
50 stories for a 50-year career (hence the title). "But," I imagine that I hear you ask, "exactly
which stories will be included in the book?"|
The contents of the book have not yet been confirmed, but here's the most recent information that we have. Each of the book's nine sections features a new introduction by Harry.
