I am bummed to report that Harlan Ellison did not win the 2010 Grammy for the Best Spoken Word Album for Children for which he was nominated. It went instead to Buck Howdy, who also won the category in 2009.
Immediately after the results were announced on January 31, Harlan reassured followers of his website:
I had a couple of my own favorites–neither of whom happened to be me, right from the git-go–but it has been a keen-o hoot of a ride, and you’ll just have to take my sincere smiling word on this: I am copacetic with the way it turned out.
Hey Mike, I thought you would be interested to know that Buck Howdy is my brother! So, needless to say, I am happy with the result 🙂
Incredible! Buck Howdy is Steve Vaus!
