Penny Arcade! today recounts the encounter between “Gabe” of Penny Arcade and Harlan Ellison, who was apparently annoyed to find that he shared guest of honor status with Gabe and Tycho.
He’s a ridiculous man, a little goblin who pokes his head out of dark holes and scowls at all the Earth. There is no room in my life for that kind of person.
From Tycho summarizing the incident:
Let’s be clear here. We’re talking about a person that a couple total assholes find rude.
There’s not that much to the exchange of hostilities, but if you’re curious, follow the link to read it.
