Someone just sent me a hilarious Ellison story. I’ll just post it here for you all to enjoy. Just so we’re all on the same page, Mr. Ellison is about 4 feet tall. I suppose he’s always been short but he might have been tall at some point and now he’s shrinking. The same thing is happening to my Grandma.
Of course I wasn’t there, but the first thing I think of when I think of insulting Harlan Ellison is to call him a little fuck. There’s an old story out there (stop me if you’ve already heard it) about him propositioning a tall blonde woman at a party with the line, “What would you say to a little fuck?” Her answer, of course, was, “Hello little fuck.”
Still gets him riled I hear.
Thanks Tom, that’s good stuff.
