HARLAN ELLISON

A world without Harlan Ellison?  Unthinkable!  But it has now happened.

Opinionated, fierce, kind, vicious, reasonable, wrong-headed, quirky, egomaniac, tilter at windmills, feminist, chauvinist, defender of the oppressed, tweaker of conscience, writer in windows, genius, bearer of grudges, dreamer, winner of awards, friend to many, enemy to many...he is legend.  Above all, Harlan was a gifted, talented, one-of-a-kind story-teller.  A diminutive giant.


From a 1976 episode of the Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder, here's Harlan on why television is made for morons:

From the documentary Dreams with Sharp Teeth, he's a brief rant about paying the writer:
