WASP versus Jews?
A Lit Fuse: The Provocative Life of Harlan Ellison - Nat Segaloff

"At another, the network insisted that a WASP lawyer be added to the cast to counteract all the Jews."

 

This is just gross - and something Ellison would have fought against, I think.

Why people think Ellison is cranky?
A Lit Fuse: The Provocative Life of Harlan Ellison - Nat Segaloff

"...said of the six-year-old contestants on theWorld’s “Our Little Miss” Variety Pageant, “Mother of god, they all look like hookers!”"

 

Yeah, that is Ellison.

I am enjoying this
A Lit Fuse: The Provocative Life of Harlan Ellison - Nat Segaloff

More than I thought I would.   The problem with purchasing the book is that it is a $35 hardcover, I'm assuming it's huge, and I don't really think I'll reread this.   I would read it if the library system had it, though. 

 

So I will be basing my vote off the excerpt.

Finished Sleeping with Monsters, onto the next excerpt
A Lit Fuse: The Provocative Life of Harlan Ellison - Nat Segaloff

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.
