Harlan Ellison will be inducted into the SF Hall of Fame tomorrow, June 25. Neil Gaiman will accept on his behalf. Ellison had not been expected to attend, however, a new CNN report says the reasons are dire:
Ellison, who had been extremely ill for several months, said in a telephone interview that he’s in the “last stages of something.”
“And I don’t have a cold,” he sarcastically noted.
Editor Gardner Dozois and artists Vincent Di Fate and Jean “Moebius” Giraud are also being inducted.
