Moment of Silence: Harlan Ellison

Harlan Ellison has passed away.  He was one of the greatest writers, and tricksters, of our time.

At the Great Con in the Sky, a man covered in GOH ribbons and muttonchop face fur says, "Harlan, please stand on the person next to you so everyone can see you."

A short, scrappy dude wobbles erect on the shoulders of several equally beribboned friends, waves cheerily to the crowd, and then dives backward to crowdsurf in the general direction of the party suite.

Coyote, cleverly disguised in a fursuit, squeezes through the crowd in pursuit, a case of beer swinging lazily from his hand.
