Author Harlan Ellison – well known partly for his prolific writing, partly for his litigiousness, and partly for his vocality – and writer of one of the best known Star Trek episodes “City On The Edge Of Forever”, has said on his web site (you have to go back to a post on November 21st, but word is only getting out now) that he’d be open to working with “the inordinately-talented J.J. Abrams” on more Star Trek. It probably would never happen, but it could be interesting. Whether Paramount would let him anywhere near the project is another matter, since he sued Paramount earlier this year over revenues from derivative works from his original script.
The Thunder Child Science Fiction and Fantasy webzine received a press release from the Land o Lakes, Florida Blockbuster announcing the great activies they have planned for the pre-release party of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD.
