Everyone dies, Including my favorite author and atheist Harlan Ellison. He’s not dead yet, but he sees the end coming. He’s making his final public appearance at MadCon in Madison. I love his work. I have since I first picked him up in the 70s, and he was already a ledged then.
Due to his failing health, there had been some doubt about whether Ellison would show up in person or participate in panels, readings and other events by telephone from his home in Sherman Oaks, Calif. But at press time he affirmed he was coming. He is also adamant that MadCon will be the final convention he ever attends, in any fashion.
I hope he hangs on for a long time to come.
