    I heard the news earlier today. Can't say I was surprised. Harlan has been in bad health for a few years.

    I discovered him back when he had the weekly segments on the SciFI Buzz show back in the early 90s. Loved those segments and they got me to run to my local library and check out every book of his they had.

    Just ordered Dangerous Visions and the second volume of the series. Maybe now we will get the third book.

    Besides his great short stories and novels, I always enjoyed his reviews of books and movies in Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine. And I liked his readings too—he did great narration for Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea.

    I've always liked this interview roundtable with members of the original Star Trek cast and Ellison. Interesting discussion.

    @peter you just sent me into a Ellison and Synder spiral. Those guys had great conversations.

    Nice! There's something raw and honest about these older interviews that we don't get as often these days. Here's another favorite: Isaac Asimov, Harlan Ellison, and Gene Wolfe discuss science-fiction writing with Studs Terkel and Calvin Trillin on the Alpha Repertory Television Service (ARTS).

    That was great, @Peter, thanks for those posts. I miss these kinds (more thoughtful I suppose) of roundtable discussions about culture on tv. It seems like you only see them happen nowadays regarding politics, but maybe my brain is just blanking out.
