RIP Jerry Pournelle

Evidently Jerry Pournelle passed away two days ago at home.  I quite enjoyed reading his books when I was younger.  I may have to go and break a few favorites out of storage.

 

That's sad. I quite like his work and always thought that he made Niven's stuff better, too.

 

He'll be missed.

I always enjoyed whet he would pop up on the tech podcasts I listen to.  He was very well researched and had some interesting opinions.

Discovering his novels and the stuff he wrote with Niven was like the treasure chest at the end of a long quest... full of gold.

 

Thanks for the many hours of entertainment Mr. Pournelle.

 

RIP

This is sad. Another of the "greats" of Science Fiction passing. But on the other hand he had lead a productive life that created a sense of wonder in a lot of people around the world. A life well lived!

 

Damon.
