RIP Harlan Ellison
« on: June 29, 2018, 09:57 AM »
Harlan Ellison was one of the most influential writers of short fiction and nonfiction of the 20th century, writing in every genre he could and protesting any attempt to pigeonhole his work.

RIP.

“For a brief time I was here, and for a brief time, I mattered.”

That was a very interesting read -- read his wikipedia page also. Sounded like quite a character...

What a coincidence.  I just watched A Boy and His Dog movie with Don Johnson again.  It was based on an Ellison story.

May he Rest in Peace and know rewards for the quality he gifted to many lives.  Amen.
