* Was hired by WarnerBrothers in the late 1970s to write a film adaptation of Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''I, Robot''; the script (which is available in book format) is highly-regarded by those who have read it, but the project fell apart after Ellison accused a studio exec of having the intellectual capacity of an artichoke. IsaacAsimov loved the script, and it was most certainly TruerToTheText than the actual ''Film/IRobot.'' Ellison considers it nothing less than [[TearJerker one of the great tragedies of his life]] that the film was never made, and his dear friend Isaac never got to see it.

* "Demon with a Glass Hand" and "Soldier", episodes of ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963''. Harlan believed, because of the similarities, that Creator/JamesCameron used them as the basis of creating ''TheTerminator'' and they agreed on a cash settlement and an official acknowledgment in the credits.
