Hideout: Bibliodiscoteque #7

Harlan Ellison

There are two camps where Harlan Ellison is concerned: Love him or hate him. I know of no one on the planet who says “Love the man, but hate his books” or “Love the books hate the man.” Somehow he and his work have merged into one creature with many bodies.

This is not to imply that Harlan and his work are exactly interchangeable, it is just that they both pulse with such intensity one would be better served stopping a bear attack with hugs and gentle words.

I can only assume that this intensity, and low bull-shit factor, is why the students in my high school classes voraciously attack his work. To be honest, I have to send them on web-quests to get most of the (for them) out-dated allusions but the core of the piece burns like a million roman candles and they can’t look away. They refuse to side glance his fiction, or cover the truth with their hands. Some even burn their retinas staring too long at the page. This is what the written word must do. It must frighten us into action, push us to accept the truth, burn the shadows of bigotry and prejudice, and illuminate us in our time of need.

And we, my friends we need so badly.

Rage well, my friends.
