Happily, it's been quite a while since I updated my obits page. However, this week the special-effects guru Ray Harryhausen and the biblical scholar Geza Vermes both died.
Harryhausen's obits are below. There were none for Vermes (though I see that there'll be one in tomorrow's Daily Telegraph), so I'll catch up with him next weekend.
Ray Harryhausen (d. 7 May 2013). Special-effects pioneer.
