Teat Treats

Harlan's essay argues that watching TV per se is the malaise - yet he himself has continued to do so (I know he's a fan of Sifl and Olly!). There is nothing wrong in watching TV - but it needs to be carefully balanced. The secret is moderation. Watching TV for ten hours a day is excessive. We can al...

Holmes & the Ripper

Whilst we're talking about TIME AFTER TIME, I'd like to highlight the two feature films which bring Mr Holmes and Jack face to face, namely 1965's A STUDY IN TERROR (UK) and 1979's MURDER BY DECREE (UK/Canada). John Neville and Christopher Plummer play the respective Holmeses, with Donald Houston an...

Living in London as I do, 'Prowler..' has a particular resonance.... The 'Jack the Ripper' guided tours around the various murder sites in the Whitechapel area have proliferated over the past few years. The subject obviously continues to hold a fascination for the general public, as it does me. I we...

Harlan on Film

Name: Rob Ewen Source: unca20050211.htm Good to hear about MEFISTO IN ONYX - wasn't Laurence Fishburne attached to the film previously? It's time we had Harlan up on the big screen again; A BOY AND HIS DOG was thirty-odd years ago now. I know TV has featured his work since then, but I'm puzzled as ...

Name: Rob Ewen Source: unca20050211.htm Micheal, 'I Have No Mouth...' was dramatised for the BBC radio series CHILLERS in 2002, and featured David Soul, with Harlan as AM (whose voice was recorded, I was told at the time, in Ellison Wonderland itself). The other stories in the series were: CORONA b...

I couldn't let this discussion go by without mentioning the appearance of the story in THE ILLUSTRATED HARLAN ELLISON. It was probably the first Ellison book I ever picked up back in 1978 in London's only (at the time) fantasy bookshop, DARK THEY WERE AND GOLDEN-EYED. Steranko's 3-D illustrations fo...

My two cents..... The story is divided up into 26 sections of differing lengths. I've always perceived it as consisting of 12 inhalations and 12 exhalations - the final erratic breaths taken by a dying person (or planet). And the final one - THIS IS FOR MARK TWAIN - is capitalised, a visual 'shout',...

HE Calendar?

Name: Rob Ewen
Source: unca20050211.htm
Harlan,

I'm intrigued by this mention of a calendar in your earlier post. Is this available commercially, or is it a private deal? Are there any others available? If so, can you tell me how I can obtain a copy?

Many thanks
Rob
