Harlan Ellison says he's dying, plans last convention appearance

Apologies if this has already been posted, I just heard about it minutes ago...

If you've been hoping for a chance to see Harlan Ellison in person, you'd better act fast—the legendary writer has announced he'll be making his final convention appearance at MadCon 2010, which begins tomorrow in Madison, Wis. As for WHY this will be the writer's final con appearance, well, we'd better let him speak for himself.

"The truth of what's going on here is that I'm dying," Ellison told The Daily Page. "I began to sense it back in January. By that time, I had agreed to do the convention. And I said, I can make it. I can make it.'"

There'd been some doubt as to whether Ellison would be appearing due to his health, but as of press time, it looks like he'll be coming—and that there's no question he won't answer.

"This is gonna be the biggest f--king science-fiction convention ever," Ellison said, "because no con has ever had a guest of honor drop dead while performing for the g-ddamn audience. The only comparison is the death of Patrick Troughton, at a Doctor Who convention. And I don't think he was even onstage."

Good to see that not even the shadow of death can keep Harlan Ellison down. He's an inspiration to us all.
