I’m Harlan Ellison – Bitch!

I drove down to LA for the dedication of the Palms — Rancho Park Branch Library in honor of Ray Bradbury

Harlan Ellison was there looking natty  in black suit and bright orange tie, shoes  and a very cool  watch black with multi colored  spokes.

You can’t see his watch – but trust me it’s cool.

George Clayton Johnson was there too, charming as always  and ( as always) looking like Gandalf’s disreputable cousin.

They discussed Ray and awe (I was never in awe of Ray having grown up with him….and I tend not to be easily awe-struck – but I am a tad reverent of Harlan Ellison) and God and stories.

I told Harlan he should read my book, “Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife” as it was right up his alley, He replied

“How do you know my alley Bitch?”

Later He asked if he could have the book – and said ”Anyone who takes on Scientologists is okay by me. – I’ll read it kid.”

He’s the literary Lewis black… or  rather Lewis Black is the night club version of Harlan Ellison.

It was a wonderful event –Ray would have loved it!

And if there is a heaven – Ray is looking down and laughing   

If there is no afterlife he’s probably still looking down laughing… nothing could stop Ray.

 Extra news….

I will be speaking at Loscon 40 around Thanksgiving!
