Movie and TV surprises for everyone!!!

Name: David Silver Source: unca20070202.htm I totally agree with Brian Siano's assessment of "Happy Feet". It's delightful and lively and uplifting and unpretentious. A real joy for the eyes and heart alike. Go see it, most especially if you have access to the big screen Imax version. Argghhhh...my...

Name: David Silver Source: unca20061122.htm Hey Steve, so you've put together a book that is "a collection of some of my fine art photographs", and you're worried about some sort of introduction for it? To which, Kim Owen Smith smartly suggested, " One solution would be to have some "Person Of Note...

The poetry market...

Name: David Silver Source: unca20061122.htm I'm always amused when people "discover" that there are virtually no financially viable markets for poetry. But then I remember that most people have no understanding of the writing market in general anyway, so just a minor bit of education and then extra...

Name: David Silver Source: unca20060807.htm For Alejandro Riera, who wrote: "Who [referring to Davison], by the way, I heard had a brilliant run last year in a brand new detective show in England which has yet to make it to these shores. The title escapes me, though." That would be "The Last Detect...

Amazing Stories...where do we go from here?

Name: David Silver Source: unca20060606.htm It's very sad to hear of the demise of Amazing Stories...again! Perhaps it will rise from the dead under a different publisher, as it has in the past. Even as a small market penny-per-word pulp, I think we would all appreciate that marvelous 80 year conti...

The mostly sorry state of literary science fiction today...

Name: David Silver Source: unca20060316.htm To Duayne Scott Thayer, who asked: Is it me, or has SF become boreing (sic) as sin over the last five years? It's not you, Duayne, I agree that it's as bad as you think it is. There are occasional pearls, but, like you, I've subscribed continually to most...

Bond...James Bond!

Name: David Silver Source: unca20060316.htm What any of this has to do with Harlan, I dunno, but I couldn't resist the topic. For true fans of the literary Jame Bond, Ash is correct, OHMSS is by far the most accurate cinematic portrayal of a 007 book and George Lazenby's is by far the most accurate...

Name: David Silver Source: unca20060316.htm Harlan, I've been in eBay from the beginning, it's represented about 50% of my income in the past decade, I've been invited on several occasions to brain storm with them over policy changes, offered my ideas, I've lectured (for good coin) on the ins and o...

That 1978 "All the Birds Come Home to Roost" tape...

Name: David Silver Source: unca20060316.htm Harlan, thanks so much for the quick response! Please, my friend, there's no hurry! If serendipity does lead you to find your copy of the tape, super-duper, but there is otherwise no necessity for you to go searching. If this workshop follows form, the to...

Where can I find this old Ellison recording...?

At the 1978 Worldcon, where Harlan was the Guest of Honor, there was a series of tapes made available for sale, offering choice...

Among them, an 88 year old woman told this joke, and I almost wet my pants when I heard it! This guy hears about a popular new pub, and he wants to try it out, but it u...

McGavin in THE CHALLENGE

Name: David Silver Source: unca20051120.htm Ezra, Yes, forgotten for decades, but as soon as I saw your post, I remembered "The Challenge" like I just saw it yesterday. I was in grammar school when it first aired. Ancient history! If I remember correctly, Mako played the other combatant. It was a g...
