Harlan has liked and supported Baum and Oz projects for many years. He wrote the foreword to Eric Shanower's first book The Enchanted Apples of Oz (1986). He gave several strong plugs to Hungry Tiger Press and Oz-story Magazine over the years. And he wrote a short essay for Oz-story No. 6.
Eric Shanower also drew the introductory pages to the various issues of the comic book Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor where he depicted Harlan introducing the comics adaptations of his stories. So let's wish Harlan luck and hope his typewriter finds a good home!
