Drunk, Disorderly, Dying (More Photos of Science Fiction Authors)



Is this just about the most unflattering photo you've seen of a bunch of authors? I mean, really, who takes this shit? Haldeman looks drunk, the guy accepting for Joss Whedon looks like he went to the wrong award show and someone just told him this isn't the Oscars ("Ohmyfuckinggod, I'm in the room with sci-fi authors!") and Ellison looks as if he's just been revived after a thousand years in cryogenic suspension and told that he can only get work writing Star Trek scripts but has to share partial cred with William Shatner's head.

It's the age of digital photography, people, how hard is it to wait until everyone is ready and Holly Black has her eyes open before you take the shot?
