I have no mouth


In any event, I don't want to give the impression that I don't appreciate the man's writing. Ellison is, in fact, one of the people who inspired me to begin writing. I think I was eleven years old, or twelve, when I first read Ellison's writing, probably in the prologue to Dangerous Visions. I quite clearly remember thinking, at that early age, "I am going to write as well as Harlan Ellison."

And then, for the next year or so, I did. But practice hones one's talent.
