I want to scream in sorrow, but I have no mouth.....

Ellison was simply one of the best short story writers of the latter half of the 20th century,period. And I am not just including the Science Fiction genre in that statement.

Yeah, I heard about this the other day, and it made me sad.

I'll have to actually read some of his stories some time, I'm sorry to say I've not done so.

Some of them are written at the top of his voice and kind of meander around awhile. My favorite is "Jefty is Five".
