Harlan Sez: “Pay The Writer!”

A memorable (and timely) rant from the feature documentary on Harlan Ellison, “DREAMS WITH SHARP TEETH.”

In case you’re unaware, Harlan is an abrasive and argumentative speculative fiction writer, whose published works include short stories, novellas, screenplays, teleplays, essays, a wide range of criticism covering literature, film, television, and print media. Sometimes he makes me laugh uncontrollably, sometimes he causes my blood to boil, but he represents my passion for writing. Hell, his short story collection “Strange Wine” was the reason I returned to it after walking away all those many years ago.

Sally forth and be collecting your paycheck writeful.
