Harlan Ellison

Post by marshb » Thu Jun 28, 2018 11:29 pm

Harlan Ellison has passed away in his sleep at the age of 84.

Ferocious writer of short stories and scathing essays. My faves were "I have no mouth and I must screem!", "Jefty is five" "Croatoan" , "Repent harlequin! Said the tick tock man." and a bunch of others too many to count.

I loved his Glass Teat essays about television! Caustic and sometimes hilarious but deadly serious.

He also contributed to B5! How cool is that!
Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.

He has some of the best titles for his stories ever! Have met the man personally. He will always be unforgettable! His body of work should be taught in every university.

Best Harlan quote for today...

"For a brief time, I was here; and, for a brief time, I mattered."

Lol yes! He used to sit on display and write entire stories while crowds watched. Insanely talented.
