Harlan Ellison had surgery Tuesday. He's chimed in online for the first time since then:
HARLAN ELLISON - Wednesday, August 6 2008 15:29:13 RESURGENCE
I'm out, and among you. I have seen the Black Lagoon, and it is good.
Dr. Karlsberg deserves the accolades he has accumulated. I felt no pain, they did not put me under, the job was done in an hour. Bim bam boom, and I was on the sidewalk in front of the South Tower of Cedars-Sinai at 9 this morning, just as Susan and Sharon pulled up.
Home now, and feeling just peachy. It was all "just one dust mote shy of a Moon Landing spectacular" -- in the words of Dr. Ronald Karlsberg, El Magnifico.
