Frank M. Robinson is best known for writing sci-fi and techo-thriller novels such as The Power and The Glass Inferno which were both adapted into films with The Glass Inferno being one of the two books that were combined to make John Guillermin’s 1974 classic disaster film The Towering Inferno which starred Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. In 2014, Robinson died at the age of 87 and his most recent works were: 2004’s medical thriller novel The Donor and 2010’s The Errand Boy novelette.
