Harlan Ellison, Iconic Sci-Fi Writer, Passes Away at 84

Damn that's sad news. The last time an author's death hit me this bad was when Michael Crichton died. I recently reached out to one of Harlan's close friends, the screenwriter Josh Olson, on Twitter on Harlan's birthday to ask how he was doing, and Olson replied that he was "The same old Harlan" and it cheered me up that he was doing well after his stroke. Sadly, his health did not hold for long.

Harlan Ellison wrote some of the best goddamn fiction in every genre he touched, and some of the best TV scripts and the greatest sci-fi movie script never made, i, Robot. Every story of his that I've read that has been worth revisiting endlessly. Reading his fiction was invaluable to me in developing my own writing voice for my own work.

We do not see many writers like his kind these days. Truly, this is sad news to hear.

Everyone should take time to watch A Boy and His Dog. It's in the public domain so you can download it without feeling like a criminal.

He also compiled the Dangerous Visions anthologies which are well worth a read. The only story he rejected because he thought it went too far was one about a snot vampire.
