FRIENDS OF ELLISON BUTTON

From Buttons & Pins

There’s a story behind this button that I want to share with you. In the 90’s a bunch of people who didn’t take too kindly to writer Harlan Ellison formed an organization called Enemies of Ellison. For the complete story on this development you can check this link that has a very detailed recount by writer Peter David. In response Mr. David created the Friends of Ellison a group that “will exist for the purpose of disseminating stories about kindnesses that Harlan Ellison has displayed”. As a part of this initiative buttons were made and sent to the members by mail. I did not get mine that way but when I met Peter David at the 1995 Dragon*Con and got my button directly from him. I still keep it and now I’m sharing it with you.
