YMMV: Harlan Ellison
  • Magnum Opus Dissonance: He really doesn't like the fact that most people keep talking about "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" whereas the one story he really felt he put his all into Grail isn't even in print anymore.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Quite often. Special credit to the essay "Xenogenesis" for being entirely true.
  • Tear Jerker: "Paladin of the Lost Hour."
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Very famously, Ellison neither drinks nor smokes nor gets blasted out of his mind on acid ever. He used to smoke a pipe, but quit that years ago.
    • Many people attending science fiction conventions in the late 60s and early 70s remember Ellison as smelling so strongly of pot you could get high standing next to him. He has often railed against hard drugs, though.
