Peter Benchley, the author of Jaws (as well as a handful of other aquatic-themed horror novels), just died. A legend in the (since cheapened) thriller genre, and, apparently, a very nice guy. Benchley, very sweetly, used to sketch sharks on everything he signed (see photo).

A few ways to pay tribute in London:

– The London Aquarium. Always has sharks around. And, possibly more interestingly, ROBOT FISH! I find this fascinating. Go go gadget fish!

– Conveniently, the Sale Sharks face off against the London Irish on 26 Feb, in the Guinness Premiership.

– Brush up on the story of Damien Hirst’s The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (aka ‘the big dead shark’).

    I too spent valuable employer time looking at this site. Thanks for turning me on to it! My boss busted me, but then got tangled up in the beauty of these drawings, so I didn’t get an ass whooping.
