Don't call him a science-fiction writer: Harlan Ellison considers himself the heir to Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, and Jorge Luis Borges. As a writer of "speculative fiction," he has turned out hundreds of short stories over the last 50 years. He has also worked on TV shows like the original "Star Trek," and "The Outer Limits." Kurt asks Ellison about his brash reputation and about the documentary about him, now out on DVD, called "Dreams With Sharp Teeth."
