HARLAN ELLISON (1934-2018)

Oh, I so don’t want to write this post. Though I can’t actually claim to count Harlan Ellison among my many friends in the genre publishing universe, I will unashamedly claim him as my unofficial mentor, my primary inspiration, and … Continue reading

GIVE TILL IT FEELS GOOD!

For a while now I’ve made it a point to donate $25 a week, every Friday, to charity. I’ve given a little money to a lot of good causes, and from the beginning I’ve had a tendency to lean toward … Continue reading

A SERIES OF POSTS ON MOTIVATION: CONTRIBUTION

And finally, this week we’ll focus in on the sixth and last of the “Six Human Needs” I introduced a few weeks ago: contribution. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this one comes last, since in more ways than do … Continue reading
