Yes, Deathbird Stories was the first I summarized and critiqued in the Bibliography wing for Rick, and the date on that is June 2000.
I did a Google search for alt.fan.harlan-ellison, which I remember being a lively little group in the mid 1990s before trolls brought it to a screeching halt: I recall getting the news about the quadruple bypass there (1996?), and a discussion of Kafka's and Ellison's wishes to have all their unfinished work destroyed upon their deaths. I can recall being pretty active on that Usenet group, but all Google turned up were a handful of posts in December 1997, which I can tell were pretty late in the game, so apparently that's all dead and buried.
