UNCLE HARLAN STILL HAS A MOUTH AND SCREAMS ANEW @ TOR.COM

Ellison versus Ryan

“You’re three days late!” Ellison growled after I introduced myself. This is unfortunately true, and possibly my fault. I decided to remind him that not only did we meet over ten years ago, but also that we spoke on the phone in 2011. That time I talked with Harlan Ellison he thanked me for an article I’d written on Tor.com about a short story of his called “How Interesting: A Tiny Man.”

Luckily he remembered this and said, “Well, I try to be punctilious in these matters,” and then laughed like a jolly gargoyle.

Ryan Britt trades barbs and notes with Spec Fic’s Angriest and Oldest Young Man, Harlan Ellison, with a special focus on the re-issue of Web of the City at Tor.com.
