Peter Benchley - A tribute

Peter Benchley the famous author is no more .Benchley's best selling novel,"Jaws" introduced a new term to Hollywood - Blockbuster.A whole new genre of movies featuring creatures going berserk can be attributed to this novel.The seventies were the peak of Jaws mania and the great white shark became the most feared predator till Spielberg introduced us to the T Rexes in Jurassic Park.Peter Benchley will be sorely missed by fans like me.The world has lost a literary jewel.
