The library doesn't have a copy, and I'm unlikely to purchase this. The Hugo packet provided an excerpt, so I'll probably base my vote on that?
So far, I'm enjoying the introduction by David Gerrold:
"That was Authentic Harlan—not wearing his Harlan suit—just a little old Jewish man who could sit and type. "
Also, I hate it when people say this:
"He is my big brother from another mother."
I just cringe. Laaaame.
As much as I'm enjoying this, and hope to enjoy the book, I don't enjoy much nonfiction, biography included, as much as I enjoy fiction. And to top it off, I'm not invested enough in Ellison to buy a $35 dollar biography on him.
I started on the graphic novels - I want to read Monsteress Volume one before I move onto two and although I don't own volume two of Paper Girls, I do own volume one and want to read that before 3, and volume one of Bitch Planet before I read volume two. But mostly I'm trying to do this in order of the finalist list, if only because I like that kind of orderly process and otherwise I'll just pick up whatever I want and not really even try for the ones I don't think will interest me - and that would be a shame. I've read some damn find things, like River of Teeth, that I thought would not interest me from the description.
