Jerry Pournelle (August 7, 1933 -- September 8, 2017) was an American fan, pro writer, and computer journalist with a PhD in political science. In his early years he worked in the aerospace industry before turning to writing SF and for the computer industry (he was a popular regular columnist for Byte). His many collaborations with Larry Niven, including such books as The Mote in God's Eye and Footfall may be his most enduring work. He was a long-time member of LASFS, was a regular contributor to Amra, and co-authored the fannish novel Fallen Angels with Larry Niven and Michael F. Flynn.
