RIP Jerry Pournelle

A Science Fiction Great Passes

This is sad news. Jerry Pournelle is one of the great writers of the generation of writers that followed in the footsteps of Heinlein and Asimov.

My personal favorite book by him (and Larry Niven) is The Mote in God's Eye, which is one of the best First Contact stories ever.

I like to think that all my favorite writers are immortal, and as history shows, the good ones are.

Rest in peace, forever among the stars.
