  This is off topic but I thought it was worth a post. 

  I was shocked to read this.  My father mentioned it to me and I shocked.  I thought maybe he made a mistake but there it was in the paper.  He wrote alot of books but he'll be remembered for JAWS.  That was quite an adventure book for me growing up as was THE DEEP and THE ISLAND.  Thinking about the books and how they fit into my childhood got me to thinking about the adventure books Papa liked.  One, which I read last years was The Man-Eaters of Tsavo, and I loved that book(and the movie made from it).  All the books made for fun and rousing reading.  Just think just how Papa read Man-Eaters as a young man and how future writers - or current - on this site had some of Benchley's books.  Well, some of you probably read Tom Sawyer or followed the hunt for Jack the Ripper.  Har, har.

  Just some thoughts.
