that's not an As-im-ov he's riding...
I do believe I see an OX crossing the FORD,

(As an aside, was there really an Ahbhu? Or is he a creation of the author?) This essay is disingenuous. It is written in a straightforward style, has a simple topic, and yet... and yet...speaks to some of the most complex themes: loss, love, and death. It is interesting to note that it does not spe...

Harlan's voice and stories

Harlan's voice (literal, not narrative) and stories are one and the same for me, as I started out as a HERC member. (Then again, does that make sense? Harlan's narrative voice is his literal voice -- I can hear him speak his stories to me as I read them.) My personal favorites A Boy and His Dog Repe...

And gout, Frank, gout as well. You can't forget about the rich fatted meat of young flesh served rare on reality shows, the port of portentious commentators, the hung game of the deer in the headlights "American Idol" or "America's Next Top Model". Rich feasting indeed! Enough to...

Breasticles

Name: Gwyneth M905 Source: unca20060901.htm A modest proposal: since everyone is so hepped up about breasts, why not bring the discussion back around to Mr. Ellisons works, and quote passages in which breasts have appeared, or played a prominent role. Then we can play Name that Breast. To wit, name...

reflection/refraction - Susan?

Name: Gwyneth M905 Source: unca20060901.htm re: reflection/refraction For all the times I've seen REAR WINDOW at home on VHS, it wasn't until I saw it at the local theater that I truly appreciated the craft of the cinematography and the lighting.

Sweet-Ass Elllison CD's

Name: Lynn Guest Source: unca20060901.htm Yeah! Harlan and Susan, thank you so much for the LP -- and WOW--so much fun to see the 'on the roads' being released. I was/am still distressed over the destruction of my signed and numbered originals. Missed the brouhaha at the Hugos. Missed WorldCon. I g...
