Weather Report: Light Snow is Falling in Hell

And Harlan Ellison has been named this year's SFWA Grandmaster.

All joking aside, it's about time. A couple of years ago, I made a list of the criminally overlooked writers that should have been Grandmasters already, and came up with Robert Silverberg, Ursula K. Le Guin and Ellison. Someone must have been thinking the same thing I was, because all three of them are now on the list.

I can't think of anyone else still missing that needs to be there, but I'm probably forgetting someone. (Leaving aside the people who died before they could be honored, like Philip K. Dick or Roger Zelazny, since SFWA only extends this honor to living authors.)

A big round of applause to SFWA, and especially to president Robin Wayne Bailey (since I understand it's the president who really makes a Grandmaster happen).

William F. Nolan is quite deserving as well. Congratulations to both of them.
