Los Angeles-born Mr Harryhausen died at his home in London on May 7, it has been confirmed.
Ray was known for his painstaking work using stop-motion animation to bring fantastical creatures to life on screen.
I was honoured to have the rare opportunity of an exclusive interview with Mr Harryhausen in 2010 following the release of a remake of Clash of the Titans.
Tribute was paid to the visual FX legend by Darren G. Davis, publisher at American comic book company Bluewater Productions, which has released a number of graphic novel sequels to Harryhausen's cinema classics.
