I don't think there are any sci-fi fans of my generation who were not aware of the brilliant storyteller and quirky force of nature that was Harlan. Died in his sleep last night, age 84.

He mattered - and not so briefly.

At a lecture I gave in Grand Forks, North Dakota in March of this year, someone asked me how do we finally knock the fools and obscurantists and believers in craziness out of the box once and for all. I told the woman that we can’t. Apart from hydrogen, the most common thing in the universe is stupidity.

I was an admirer, too.
