I forgot to mention that I was a huge fan of Ellison when I was in HS going into college. My friend and I read everything we could find written by him including his nonfiction stuff like The Glass Teat about television.
People did not know that I was aware of his prophetic stories but I took note of them a few years ago. I also thought when I read them how cool it would be to have those abilities. As I questioned Harlan is still alive and I juiced him up yesterday, gave him a good charge. 🙂
