Group discussion

Name: Jan Source: unca20050211.htm A good day to you all! How would we feel about a more "systematic" discussion of Ellison's works, in addition to all that's already going on around here? The basic idea is that each week we could chose a story to talk about, so everyone who wants to participate in...

Name: Jan Source: unca20050211.htm Every time a major talent and good person dies it's also and probably most importantly a reminder to appreciate even more the ones who are still around. A thank you to Tony and Castro for the story recommendations, you're doing me a big favor. I have already read ...

Name: Jan S. Source: unca20050211.htm Has anyone read Bob Daylan's autobiography? If not, I'd like to recommend it to everyone including Harlan, who probably has. After all they're the same generation and have lots of background in common. Bob talks about the 50's and 60's in great detail. I wasn't...

Name: Jan Source: unca20050211.htm My two cents about MATRIX: The value of the first MATRIX movie (which was teriffic and intelligent) lay in giving you an outside perspective on your life, it was close to mind-expanding. It required the audience to use muscles of the brain the audience isn't used ...

Genres

Name: Jan Source: unca20050211.htm Just my two cents regarding SF & F. SF is based on what we know, i.e. it is set in a world that is an extrapolation from the world we live in, whereas fantasy is not. It is not correct that sf is futore-oriented and fantasy is past-oriented. Both genres are really...

Does anyone know what the word "mondo" actually means and where it comes from? Or is it mundo? Harlan uses it to express something extreme. I guess it's not the Italian word, so what is it? Thanks for enlightening me.

This is how your post read, so Susan didn't misunderstand anything, I read the same thing out of it. If you reread your post you will f...

On the Road 2

Name: Jan Source: unca20041124.htm Received my copy today from Deep Shag, and it turns out I badly needed my Ellison fix today. Good work! I think Deep Shag is reading? Since Harlan reported making available tons of audio material, I was surpised to see only material from three occasions included. ...

It's also rich. It's not a book that's out to scare you, it gives you much more than that. I can't believe Adam...

Name: Jan Source: unca20041124.htm Concerning scary books, has no one read Stephen King's "It"? To my knowledge, he's never written anything else as scary and capivating. (Yes, the finale's a little weak.) Concerning "One the Road with HE Vol. 2", from the contents listing it looks like it has a de...

Hi Harlan, did you deal with/work with Michael Piller on NTZ, and what do you think about what's become of him, in particular the show Dead Zone?

To everyone who missed me, I was out of the country for a few weeks.:-)

HARLAN

Name: Jan Source: unca20040928.htm Was glad to hear that you support research efforts. I neglected to mention it was for my book for two reasons. a) Because theres no separation in my head between my personal curiosity and the book. It contains what I myself would want to know and read about. b) Im...
