What Passes for a Preface, Harlan Ellison , 1998 single work column
Ellison gives an account of his strong desire in the 1980s to edit an anthology of science fiction writing to showcase the talents of emerging Australian writers in the genre. While he regrets his failure to produce this book, he acknowledges the outstanding development of Australia's sci fi writers in the following decade and commends Dann and Webb's successful compilation in Dreaming Down-Under.
