Harry Nilsson Clown Face Album Cover Story

Harry was published in Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine. One of his greatest dreams was to be a Galaxy SF author. I was editor of Galaxy atm, and read Harry's first story -- it needed only one edit, and I bought it on the spot. He'd written it on my desk, in that strange, cryptic handwriting for which he was known. The story about the clown face makeup and the vw is all about how Harry and I used to drive around looking for great photo ops for covers and liners -- we were always thinking up "hooks" and album titles. This story includes Dr. John, Sky Saxon of the Seeds and bizarre coincidence control.
