Re: Farewell to the stainless steel rat

I read the SSR and the SSR's Revenge as a spotty 14 year old while my friends at school were all into Adam and the Ants etc, but clearly my mind was on more serious subjects.

RIP Harry, I think I need to re-find your work again

Oh man, I had completely forgotten about those books. I'm going to have to go find them for a re-read.
