Remember that story about Harlan Ellison possibly working with J.J. Abrams on future Trek? Well, apparently Ellison wasn’t too happy about the way it was worded on SCI FI Wire, so he contact them to set the record straight – and threaten the correspondent (tongue-in-cheek, I think…)
The Thunder Child webzine has begun experimenting with Hubpages, and to that end we’ve uploaded an article about Willy Ley there.
Willy Ley, one of the founders of the German Rocket Society and an acknowledged expert on the subject, left Germany as soon as Hitler came to power (out of conviction rather than fear, as he wasn’t Jewish) and eventually settled in the US, where he became friends with Isaac Asimov and a host of science fiction writers, wrote science essays for Galaxy, and so on.
