Techno-Thriller writer Craig Thomas dies at age 68

Craig Thomas, most known for his 1977 novel Firefox, made into the movie starring Clint Eastwood, passed away on April 4th, 2011 following a bout of pneumonia.

Firefox was Thomas' second published novel and was a huge bestseller in the UK and United States.  The royalties from that novel allowed him to turn to writing full-time and over the next 20 years, he wrote 16 more novels, many of them bestsellers in their own right.

The Guardian published a full obituary yesterday - available here.
