your medical situation went so well, Harlan. And I laughed out loud when I saw that tee shirt while you greeted the crowd in line outside the New Beverly. Perfect for you.

HARLAN: SFX/Terminator

Glad to hear you're still in one piece. You put the "fight" into "fighting fit"...

I thought it would please you to know, my copy of SFX arrived today, and they've devoted two full pages to your Terminator clarifications - quoted you at length (I'm guessing from the call you made to them), and even put up a nifty side-by-side photo comparison of the opening sequences of "Soldier" and "The Terminator" (where the similarities are shockingly clear). It's a really nice article, and you come across as the reasonable, urbane, handsome fellow that you really are. There's a nice photo of you, a link to here, and even a plug for the new edition of "Harlan Ellison's Watching".

I'll throw my copy of the magazine in the post (sorry, the "mail") today for you. Hope everything else is peachy, and that the Paramount lawyers are quaking and soiling their pants at the very mention of your name.

Please give the lovely Susan a kiss and a cuddle from me. Jodie also says hello, and sends her very best to you both.

Health issues

Harlan, may your health continue to be good for decades to come, and may you soon put all of Paramount's lawyers into intensive care.

What's the first thing you'll do with Paramount after you own it? Demolish the Gene Roddenberry building?

Great news for Harlan and Susan. Personally, I think it is Susan's care that is making all the differance.

I received my notice that the Rabbit Hole 47 was my last and to renew now since 48 just went out. If I renew now am I able to still get 48? I'm also interested in the books listed in 47 (Deathbird and Weird Tales).

Thank you!

Here's why I love the internet:
a few days ago, I caught a passing mention of an article Gay Talese had done in Esquire Magazine about Frank Sinatra. Among other things, it chronicled a confrontation between our esteemed host and Mr. S. I was then able to track down and read that article in the Esquire archives, 5 minutes later.

Skimmed most of it - Frank was a great singer, but his person doesn't interest me. The confrontation, though, was fun.

Anyone who can do the things that Harlan has done in his life, including going toe to toe with Ol' Blue Eyes, is fully capable of making all four horsemen rear, wheel, and gallop madly in the opposite direction.

Good on ye, Mr. E.

and I have an odd sighting of Harlan-related material. The new IKEA north of Charlotte is using the Swedish edition of the Essential Ellison as decor in a few sections. Sadly, I can't read Swedish, but from the few words I could pick out it seems to be the real thing. Not quite what I expected on my visit.

Now to see if:
A-Harlan needs a copy and B-if I can buy one.
