I called Paul to praise him, and he mentioned, en passant, that BOB BOOTH had outfoxed his doctors' diagnoses of imminent death more than a few years ago but, nonetheless, had, finally, at last, just passed away. And Paul reminded me that when we first met, in Rhode Island, long ago, that it was at...

Re: 1969 - VIC AND BLOOD cycle

An interesting Blu-ray of the film has been released (review), and Harlan was interviewed.

Harlan in The Guardian Ah, All The Lies That Are My Life. One of my great apologias for being the idiot I am. It was based upon – well, there are two legs upon which it stands. One of them is the relationship that I have had with another writer all my life, who was at one time a very, very close fri...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

I'm glad I held back because Steve has responded much better than I could have. I'm almost afraid Steve would be able to sum up my character as concisely... No, I'm unpredictable...

Re: Peluquero Redux

It's breach of code to hover about or make noise when someone else is on the phone, especially if it's an important or personal call (which can be hard to tell). As long as she's still attempting to find a place, there's proabably not much you can do except make sure she knows and obeys basic house ...

I'm simply too busy myself to contribute anything in the foreseeable future, at least until a new book comes out. I occasionally check if everything still works or to edit the Glass Teat page or a link. If someone happens to read a Harlan book not covered here, they're always welcome to put some kin...

Re: 1965 - 'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman

The ultimate point of the story, and the reason he subverts his own fable, is not that we should fight conformity or fight individuality because society or some author tells us we should (or because some flimsily-drawn character tells us so), but rather we should protect and fight for what we love ...

Re: Bots

Thanks, Rick. I get new IPs every day.
If it applies only to me, it's not a big problem, though for the sake of young readers and legitimate non-fans I submit it's better to stick to well-known titles with short, easy words missing.

Re: An update on my life

I told you all this before, but you seem to want a response. Do stop putting all those demands on yourself simultaneously and forgive yourself every harmless shortcoming or mistake once you've learned from it. You will keep making mistakes and not always live up to your standards, like everybody els...

Re: Bots

Is it possible to stop submitting confirmed human beings to the same old anti-bot procedures again and again and again? After three years or so, the system should accept to the fact that we're here. I'm really tired of the prompts and I don't even post very often. I also object to the new (to me) Na...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

The flame wars are orchestrated by Steve and myself behind the scenes and we hope you'll like the next one better. As for Rick, you should know that the original Rick hasn't been heard from in many years - the current one is an alter ego of Steve's. (I was surprised too.) There will be no revamp apa...
