Ellison’s Final Convention

SF Grandmaster Harlan Ellison, 76, has announced that his final convention appearance will be this weekend at MadCon (Sept. 24-26 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Madison WI), where he is guest of honor. There was some doubt that he would make it to the convention due to poor health, but his attendance has been confirmed.

In an interview with Madison website The Daily Page, Ellison discusses his declining health and his final projects, among other subjects. “The truth of what’s going on here is that I’m dying… I’m like the Wicked Witch of the West — I’m melting. I began to sense it back in January. By that time, I had agreed to do the convention. And I said, I can make it. I can make it.”
