Hey, Harlan?

This is so not okay.

so now he has gotten to Jerk Emeritis.. I don't like his writing, and i don't like what he did to science fiction, and i have a feeling i wouldn't like him, if we ever met.. He helped turn a genre for engineers with imaginations into a dopeadelic angst fest...IMHO..

Not to say that SF didn't need a shaking up, not to say that a lot of great stuff didn't come out of the "Dangerous Visions Movement", not to say that he didnt open doors for a lot of Women and other non-standard-isssue-white-male-writers... But a jerk and master of the hollywood cheap shot..


Skroom.
and, while i'm raving, the contrast between Ellison and Arthur C. Clarke, in personality, prophethood, imadination and life style is pretty awsome. at least at my distance..
