"I did something."- Harlan Ellison
21 July 2018 | by poe-48833See all my reviews

Among the many accomplishments of Harlan Ellison was SOLDIER, his anti-war war story about a soldier from the future cast into the Past (our Present) and pursued through Time by an enemy soldier. Riveting stuff, Then and Now, and one of the many highlights of THE OUTER LIMITS (the original series). Ellison may be gone, now, but his Words (and DEEDS) will live Forever: he always took the Moral High Ground and never flinched, never gave an inch, even in the face of seemingly unbeatable odds. In a world where 90% of the Earth's population breathes polluted air (and drinks polluted water and eats tainted food) and 7 Million people die every year from breathing that pollution, Ellison was vital to our Understanding of what it is we should be standing for (and standing firmly AGAINST). He was and always will be an Inspiration to those of us whose voices mostly go unheard.
