I suppose the other thing is that when the SPIDER forums stray into areas of analysis that Harlan disagrees with about both his stories and essays, he's shown a tendency to pop up and tell everyone what the story means and/or why a particular interpretation is wrong. Or in other words, Harlan's int...

Harlan is one of those people who produce extreme reactions, because he's not shy about sharing his opinions. Almost no one is neutral about Harlan. People would crawl on their hands and knees through steaming monkey shit to either save him from the cauldrons of hell [snips] That deification means ...

Re: You Don't Know Me, I Don't Know You

Because he makes no great distinctions between his work and his life. [snips]And it's no secret that Harlan is a "performer". The man loves the spotlight and he's built his reputation, good and bad, on the basis of not only his stories, but his fights and his mistakes and his triumphs. He...

Music is mathematics made matronymic, its patronymic rhythm giving tone a frame to play on.

I was thinking along the lines of a photo, but perhaps Frank is going for a moving effect with his eyes. Oooh Jan, Frankie always has a moving effect with his eyes...especially when he wears mascara.:wink: Makes me shiver just to think about it... Jan quotes Dylan: "The records I used to liste...

But Jan, if Frank posts them to Germany, won't they start to smell? Airmail perhaps? Packed with some 'o' them blue freezer baggie thingies.

Thank you, Steve, David and Cary, I do enjoy it here, very much! It's brought me back to my childhood and my teen years of reading lots and lots of Ellison. He's such a lovely man, and a dedicated, serious thinker who puts his heart and guts into everything he writes. I think he attracts the same --...

Our Little Miss/JonBenet Ramsey

Our Little Miss/JonBenet Ramsey (Ellison, H. The Other Glass Teat. pp.144-152. 1983 Ace Books. New York.) I would like to propose a theory for discussion based on Harlan’s “Our Little Miss” column. I propose for your discussion that there is a deep-rooted two-pronged desire some members of the Ameri...

My dainty feminine sensibilities are suitably overcome by such a display of manly virility that I think I must retire to my fainting couch. Beulah, bring me my smelling salts and loosen my corset...I'm going to have one of my "spells"...oh, and while you're at it, tell that nice young man ...

Hi, Jennie, Mice are nice :). I'm a bitch, as you can see by my avatar. I love good historical romances too, but the writers must get the details right.
