Ellison and Groth to mediate?
Back on April 1st, we ran a little piece entitled "Ellison, Groth sign historic peace accord". Because of the date, many readers thought we were engaging in an April Fool’s joke and making the whole thing up.
Now columnist Rich Johnston reports: "I understand that both Fantagraphics and Harlan Ellison were asked if they would participate in mediation over their current legal confrontation and that both have, at this time, gladly agreed. This will occur on May 29th at the Federal District Court Of Appeals in California. It will be attended by Ellison, Groth and their respective legal representatives. Given the good will from both sides regarding this approach, maybe we could indeed see peace in our time."
Don’t worry. We only use our predictive powers for good. We tried using our powers to find out the ending of Lost, but there the future is truly unwritten, as are the scripts.
