Happy 79th, Halrlan Ellison
 
May he continue to write and... well, just be Harlan for many more to come. To hell with dying.

Sir Rhosis

And may he forgive my typo in the thread title -- fingers move too fast for the brain.

Yeah, I think he jumped the gun a little bit on announcing his impending death. But who hasn't made that mistake? :)

We're all sure to go at some point.

Happy Birthday to Harlan! The world would be a less interesting place without him.

Indeed it would! Hard to believe that 'Science-Fiction's Last Angry Young Man' is 79 years old. I had the pleasure of meeting him when we were both younger, at the Superman Expo in Cleveland. May he continue to entertain us with his wit and writing talent for some time to come.

That's what the CEO of Grosset & Dunlap probably thought.

BTW, if you've not seen the documentary about Ellison entitled Dreams With Sharp Teeth. I recommend it very strongly. It's available on DVD, and here's the trailer:
