Just saw it. Mild spoilers but....... Promising beginning. Never cared much for the religious aspects when it came to actually believing in them but at the end... What a huge disappointment. To borrow a term from Michael Moorcock, it was nothing more than four seasons of a Shaggy God Story. All thos...

John Clute and Harlan Ellison

Name: Faisal A. Qureshi Source: unca20090314.htm I hope I'm not feeding any flames in SF circles or something (I'm still mildly singed from the Ian Watson/Brian Aldiss/Pringle/Kubrick debacle) but you can find HE commenting on JC in the last paragraph of this interview: http://www.sfsite.com/07a/he...
