Harlan

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20060606.htm When I read your post about being a CFS sufferer I wanted to offer my sympathy. I am one, too, and it's a horrible thing made doubly so by the fact that externally you look so much better than you actually feel. Non-afflicted people just don't get it. Mi...

Are any of you guys familiar with the Vance Integral project? A group of volunteers, working with Jack Vance and his family, produced a complete 45 volume set of his works available through subscription only. The books are beautiful and while not necessarily bringing Vance to today's masses, new Van...

Authors like Harlan?

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20060606.htm I am not aware of any authors other than Harlan that have such an open and available relationship with his fans. We know more of him through his essays, reviews and non-fiction than we do of other authors, we can see the man and hear from his own lips wh...

Fight Club

We all do things according to our own code of ethics but when we project our own onto others, we lose every time. It'll never fly, Orville. Judge not, and all that. Besides, it worked for the legend of Hemingway, didn't it?

Duck ponds

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20060606.htm Mr. Ellison: My wife told me to up and get my butt on a plane to Minicon but we couldn't swing the schedule. It's slightly ironic in that I'm from Minneapolis and used to go to Minicons nearly thirty years ago where I actually bought some of your books; ...

Disingenuous

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20060606.htm I'm not sure what difference it makes whether Frank was trying to "burp" either the Canadians or Harlan Ellison. It's no more okay to mindlessly needle those guys any more than it would be to do it to Harlan. The apology sounds like, "Whoops, I got caugh...

Is this really so hard?

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20060606.htm I haven't been able to bring myself to read all of the really heavy analyses on this piracy issue so if someone has already said this, take this as an agreement: If I go over to a friend's house to watch The Sopranos with him, I do not feel obligated to ...

State of Science Fiction

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20060316.htm A quick jab of an opinion: I, too, don't prefer "today's" science fiction and find too much of it lacking when it comes to giving me the same feelings I've had throughout the years. There is only one contemporary writer that I follow, Robert Charles Wils...
