The Harlan Ellison HornbookeBook - 2014
Over the course of his legendary career, Harlan Ellison has defied-and sometimes defined-modern fantasy literature, all while refusing to allow any genre to claim him. A Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers Association as well as winner of countless awards, including the Hugo, Nebula, Edgar Allan Poe and Bram Stoker, Ellison is as unpredictable as he is unique, irrepressible as he is infuriating. E-Reads is proud to publish over thirty titles in Ellisons brilliant catalog, now available in an elegant new package featuring Ellison himself. Genius never felt so combustible. - A major collection of Harlan Ellisons incomparable, troublemaking, uncompromising, confrontational essays and newspaper columns, THE HARLAN ELLISON HORNBOOK mines deep into the author's colorful past. Failed love affairs, departed pets, a defense of comic books -- in lesser hands these subjects would be pablum or treacle. When Harlan Ellison is behind the typewriter, mundanity becomes an all-out intellectual brawl. Emotionally moving and verbally stimulating, these columns can't be missed, especially Ellison's article on controversial comedian Lenny Bruce or the chilling account of the author's trip to visit a death row inmate in San Quentin State Prison.
