Harry Harrison (1925-2012) was an American novelist of science fiction, best known for his Stainless Steel Rat character. His novel Make Room! Make Room! was loosely adapted into the film Soylent Green, starring Charlton Heston. Before he starting writing, Harrison was an artist for EC Comics series Weird Fantasy and Weird Science. He also wrote syndicated comic strips. His science fiction was usually full of satire and adventure, although he also used serious themes (like in the case of Make Room! Make Room!).

Harry Harrison’s debut novel was Deathworld, published in 1960, although he had already made significant contributions to the genre beforehand. Below is a list of Harry Harrison’s books in order of when they were originally published (and in chronological order when necessary):
