Harlan Ellison, feeling his health fading, will be making his last convention appearance at MadCon.
I got to meet him once, and even got him to break up with a laugh and shake my hand at Dragon*Con, when he was one of the M.C.’s for Iron Artist and I was pulled from the audience to be a judge. (The contestants were Larry Elmore and Don Bluth — and yes, that was a big moment for me, in fact!)
As I don’t expect to be at MadCon, I’ll simply say here that I admire you, Mr. Ellison, and your work has meant a lot to me over the years. Thank you!
