Unca Harlan's Art Deco Dining Pavilion

Discussion of the man and his work.

Welcome to the Art Deco Dining Pavilion! Here's the deal. This is Harlan's little breakfast nook at Webderland. When he's not here, we chat about him and his work. When he is, we act like we're guests in his home. That's about all there is to it. (link to More specific rules) Oh, and since the nook doesn't exactly hold a crowd (and to prevent the less frequent voices from being drowned out), please limit yourself to one post a day unless Harlan asks you a direct question. The Pavilion Annex is available if you're the logorrheic type. Also, we have archives of old posts. RSS Feed

You there! Go and buy some comics from Harlan Ellison's Comic Collection right now!

Rick ~ feel better!
And just adding to the glad tidings that the Pavilion is back in biz, if still absent our host. I know Robert N and I feel better.

What if...
not one
who entered the lists
went unheralded
hope full
hero bound
to try
despite the odds
a champion
one for all

at long last
have got...
That Essay
off my chest.
I’m glad
you stayed
with me
for the journey.”

and all for one

Trump and the Clinton News Network actually have something in common, i.e., few retractions and even fewer apologies.

CNN's Harlanesque report
I think Trump brought out the Harlan Ellison in CNN's reporters and contributors -- and in Jake tapper -- especially with this article on all of Trump's inadequacies. :)

"...the President climbed into a big-rig tractor parked outside the White House, sounded the horn like an excited boy and pretended he was driving. (He hadn't looked so happy in weeks.)"

A very happy welcome back to the Pavilion from a long-time lurker! Thank you, Rick! I'm sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. Hope you feel better now.

Deathbird Stories review/discussion podcast
Hello all-

Glad to see the site is back up. It's disconcerting when the one 100% worthwhile site on the web goes down. Anyway, my ongoing book podcast, BookTalk with Jordan & Stefan, did a three part review/commentary on Deathbird Stories. Would love to hear thoughts from fellow Webderlanders.

Part One:

Part Two:

Part Three:

So Great to Have The Together League Together Again!
Thank you, Rick!

It is wonderful to see this ol' Maxwell gurgling and coughing down the road again.

I live for any updates from The Together League and await any instructions on actions that might need to be taken against Mr. Gutman or The Russian.

Good to see the Webderland back online. Now, if only the rest of the forums were to be re-activated. But I'll take what I can get.

In the meantime, best hopes, wishes, and thanks to Harlan and Rick.

A LITE FUSE & a Harlan Ellison-related article
It now looks like the LIMTED edition of A LIT FUSE:The Provocative Life of Harlan Ellison by Nat Segaloff will be shipping in late April. So expect to see a copy, if you ordered, by late May.
Other editions will follow in "summer" and later this year.
This story mentions Harlan Ellison's window-writing events: and it offers interested writers an opportunity to do something similar, albeit with certain caveats.

So where have all you people been? I've been whistling by myself here for weeks wondering where everyone went.

Well, howdy, folks…glad to see that our house in the world wide web didn't burn down after all. Thankee thankee thankee to whomever was able to fix this wee digital hiccup.

I forgot what I was going to say
but I'm sure it'll come to me...

Someone in contact please pass my good wishes on to Webmaster Rick in hopes he is on the mend.

Cool, I've been checking for weeks
OK, so lets start again with the politics...or maybe if it's appropriate to separate an author's personal views from his or her creative works. Or maybe religion...NOT!

Glad the site is back, I hope Mr. Wyatt is OK.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
Hey! We're back from the Shadows again!

A nod to Rick Wyatt with wishes for continued improved health, and a tip o' the chapeau to Steve Barber for keeping us all in the loop. And a big Hello! to Harlan and Susan, too.

My only place for mostly serious discussion and sanity in the universe that is the Internet has finally returned.

Maybe I won't be needing that therapist after all.

Oh, Frabjous Day!
Caloo, callay, etc. I hope this is a good sign for both the Ellisons and Rick Wyatt, who had some medical problems.

Everybody do the zombie stomp!

I haven't been this pleased since I'd chucked the heartless creature, Runty Boon over the edge Niagara Falls and watched as he tumbled through the cold mist into even colder darkness. Oh, my joy! Please, consider this a crushing embrace.
