AZ Central interviews the "Grand master of fabulism" in advance of Saturday's Nebula event when he will be named Grand Master. He has some interesting things to say in the article, so I hope you click the link. But I couldn't help but chuckle over the image this quote provides:
And, of course, I still watch Judge Judy every day. You know, you can watch everything on television night and day and you will not see real people. But Judy, what it is is small-claims court, and you get the cadences of the voices of average people. You can see, sadly, how ignorant most people are these days.
I get a quaint image of the aging Ellison in a comfy chair, eagerly awaiting Judge Judy every afternoon.
I really wish Ellison was writing more these days. I haven't read a new story from him in ages.
