Harlan Ellison - Pay the Writer!

Why haven't I read the man's work yet? In a clip from the film Dreams With Sharp Teeth writer Harlan Ellison talks about, nay, rants about getting paid for an interview he gave for another documentary.

This doesn't have a blessed thing to do with the current writer's strike, and the strike is something I have pointedly avoided writing about, though I do have opinions, but this clip is just too good not to share (until it gets pulled from YouTube).

Warning - Ellison uses strong language.

Go out immediately-immediately!--and read the short stories "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream," "Repent, Harlequin..." and "The Whimper of Whipped Dogs." Then go out and read the rest. Harlan is a hero.

P.S. I don't know why I wrote this without getting paid?

I might just have to go check out The Essential Ellison from the library. :)
