Harlan Ellison's Last Convention

According to this Harlan Ellison has said MadCon will be his last convention and that he is dying.  To many of you reading this you will ask who Harlan Ellison is.  And that's a shame.  Mr. Ellison is one of the greatest living writers of the last quarter century.  For now I'll leave this short and sweet and just tell people to go out and find anything they can by Harlan and read it.  You can thank me later.

I haven't read nearly enough of his work, but I am familiar with it. I have the volume The Essential Ellison in my library.

To me he's one of the writers that I keep going back to his work over and over. He's probably the person that made me want to be a writer more than any other. The Essential Ellison is great, but if you can find any of his work with his story introductions or his collections of essays or reviews, pick it up. His non fiction is worth reading just as much. The shame is that hardly anything of his is in print at the moment.
