I reread his first novel THE POWER every couple years and it never lets me down. The finest dark suspense novel Cornell Woolrich never wrote and at the same time pure Robinson.

I read it about the same time the movie came out. I mentioned the movie here on "Overlooked Movies" a while back.

Another icon of my youth gone.

I met him at a PulpCon, and we talked about THE TOWERING INFERNO and other books and movies. I believe he also had a table selling posters of pulp cover art at the time. I think I have all of his pulp cover books. He, John Gunnison, Phil Nelson, and I went to a bookstore in town (Dayton) together. Very sorry to hear of his passing.
