I Have A Mouth And I Must Scream - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
The interviewer sounds suspiciously like a certain podcaster speaking into a phase shifter.
As a young hippie female, I stumbled one evening upon the 1968 BayCon SF Convention, being held in a Fantasyland-Castle-ish hotel up in the hills on the border between Oakland and Berkeley. I knew from nothing about SF cons, which were much less of a thing back then anyway, tho I'd been reading SF since I was in grade school. I hadn't heard about BayCon, but I saw the lit-up hotel from the bottom of the street and just walked in, no ticket or anything. No one asked me for one, everything was very surreal and loose. I wandered into the main ballroom, and saw, among other things, Harlan accepting a Hugo for the script of the Star Trek episode "City on the Edge of Forever". I believe he got another Hugo too, but I don't remember for what.I'm glad you're a pal of his, DG. And that's a great description of him. I've always imagined him eating tacks for breakfast, just to get the day started right.
