Harlan Ellison is probably the greatest short-story author alive, with
the possible equal of Frederik Pohl. I was first introduced to this short
story deity by an enchanting copy of Ellison Wonderland, a
wonderful work, to say the least. I have neglected to mention books on my
homepage, mostly because an in-depth discussion of The Phantom
Tollbooth, or The Mouse That Roared, or A Prayer for Owen
Meany would be beyond the scope of a one-page document. However, I
cannot neglect Harlan Ellison, who has not only has a sigificant impact
on my writing style, but on my sleeping patterns as well.
Some Harlan Ellison web links:
There are, of course, other links as well, but these links about cover
it; this is not a dedicated Harlan Ellison page. I personally recommend
immediately going out and purchasing, reading, and memorizing the
incredible Approaching Oblivion, the wonderfully dark Deathbird
Stories, and the whimsical Ellison Wonderland.
