Any Sci-Fi fans will surely know who I'm talking about. I only just found out by clicking on Wikipedia that his book "Make Room, Make Room" was the foundation of the 1973 Charlton Heston classic film "Soylent Green". He has of course written other books, but his most famous creation was Slippery Jim DiGriz, AKA "The Stainless Steel Rat". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stainless_Steel_Rat
TWO reasons why I'm posting this.....
(1).....Another piece of my childhood is gone
(2)...... As the character was first written over 50 years ago, I think it's high time the SSR was turned into a movie.
HONESTLY though sifters, you don't even have to be into Science Fiction to appreciate them, "The Rat" was a lovable thief who had to operate in a high-tech world, he was k-i-n-d o-f a cross between James Bond & Monty Python.
