I Have No Heart, Yet I Must Mourn. (Goodbye, Harlan)

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Just yesterday, I read that "speculative fiction" (as he liked to call it) writer, Harlan Ellison passed away.  My title placed above, is a sort of take-off, paraphrase tribute to Harlan's, "I Have No Mouth, Yet I Must Scream!"

     Regular readers of this blog will no doubt know that Harlan enjoyed comic books and even wrote a few when he was not writing television, essays and the on and off movie.

     Along the television line, Harlan is known for his scripts for "Outer Limits" ("Sodjer") which I believe he sued the makers of "Terminator, citing some similarities.  And of course the Star Trek episode, "City on the Edge of Forever."

     I have some more soon on Mr. E. including a funny meeting I had with him.  But for now...

     Take care and adopt a (any type of Harlan writing) comic book today!
