Ellison Media Event

This Saturday, May 16th, Harlan Ellison will appear at Dangerous Visions Bookstore in Sherman Oaks, California, where he will write a story in the the store's front window -- as he has done many times before. So many times before, in fact, that on this occasion he will be inducted into The Guiness Book of World Records! Chris Carter will be there to perform the ceremony, and the Sci-Fi Channel's Masters of Fantasy will be filming the event for posterity.
