I enjoyed reading some of his collaborations with Larry Niven - The Mote in God's Eye, the Hereot books etc. It has been a while since I read any of his works. He certainly had a long & busy life.

Ditto. That's rather sad.

This saddens me. He has (co-)written much that I've enjoyed. Mote, Footfall, Falkenberg's Legion, The Gripping Hand, and Fallen Angels.

Here is couple of podcast interviews with him, the first one has a rather unique way of spreading manure on the farm
