Had a stroke, apparently. [Also appears to be recovering, but it brings him back into the focus.]

Going over the old list and their reasons for being on the list, I've come to deem Ellison's "dying" remarks as a bit of hyperbole on his part. Rather than saying "I'm terminally ill so allow me to live my life" he was saying "I'm an old man so I should spend my time wisely". True to his character I'd say.

Another Zsa Zsa Gabor, then?

Beginning to feel that Harlan Ellison, like Superstar Billy Graham, wasn't so much as announcing his imminent death as saying "Hey everyone, look at me! Look at me! Pay lots of money to come to the conventions I attend because I might be dead next year I suppose idk"

Still well enough to throw a lawsuit at New Regency and producer Andrew Niccol, alleging that they've ripped off Repent Harlequin! Said The Ticktockman for their upcoming Justin Timberlake flick In Time.

Here is a classic Harlan Ellison interview. Play this in front of any obnoxious Trekkies you know as he destroys their favourite show :skull: :





Well after reading his Wikipedia entry it looks as if I'm probably the only one on here who's not familiar with the guy, what with his credits for Star Trek and I Robot and the like.

But the bit I liked best on there took me to a cameo in Gay Talese's celebrated feature on Frank Sinatra. The whole feature is a long read but worth it. Gay Talese is new to me but shouldn't be; amazing to think he wrote that without getting an interview with Sinatra. The piece was written in 1966 long before the Godfather films that alluded to Sinatra's mafia connections. Talese is 78, coming up 79, and will get an obit when the time comes. But he looks OK just now.
