Books by Harlan Ellison


Strange Wine (2004)

This is a pretty amazing collection. Harlan Ellison's use of language makes me shudder. The man has skills. Reading this reminds me that writing can be a craft, not just a way to put down brain dribble. Most of these short stories build up and up and up until Ta-Da! Mind Blown. He's very good at ...

Harlan Ellison's Watching (1992)

If you admire Harlan Ellison because he dares utter all the criticisms of what is stupid and mindless in our popular culture that you, yourself, would utter if you were not so timid or polite, you will like this book.If you liked the biopic "Dreams With Sharp Teeth," you'll like this book. Ellis...

Harlan Ellison's Watching (1992) by Harlan Ellison

Spider Kiss (2007)

At first it seemed like I was going to like this book a lot.It opens with a crowd of girls eager to see Stag Preston, a young crooner (it feels a little weird to call him a rocker since so much rock has happened between now and the fifties) with a lean body and fitted clothes and a sweet ass red ...

Shatterday (1983)

This is the first Harlan Ellison book I've read. The only other story of his I was familiar with was "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream," which remains one of the most chilling and effective things I've ever read. But I knew Ellison by reputation: he's known as the cranky old man of sci-fi, as...

Over the Edge/An Edge in My Voice (1999)

Though it seems somewhat odd, now, Edgeworks 1 was my introduction to (arguably) America's best fantasy writer.Ellison himself would denounce that title, calling himself "an Ellison writer for Ellison fans" more than once in his long and storied career - but make no mistake: the man can write his...

Over the Edge/An Edge in My Voice (1999) by Harlan Ellison

Approaching Oblivion (1985)

One of the lesser known Ellison collections, it remains a favorite that I recommend to everyone. the dedication itself is thought provoking, but the stories are what Ellison is known for and in this book we find the ideas coming fiercely and at fever pitch. One story, short enough to maintain a s...

Hot Blood: Tales of Erotic Horror (1989)

There is a line of thought that sex and horror (death) are linked; and it's not just because Hammer horror films started integrating nudity by the late 60's and a lot of people grew up on them.The link seems to be loss of control. Great sex culminates in a white hot primal climax that renders bot...

Hot Blood: Tales of Erotic Horror (1989) by Harlan Ellison

The Glass Teat (1983)

Enough to give serious flashbacks to anyone who lived through the tail end of the Sixties in a pissed-off mood, which, as Ellison makes clear, was the only sane response. The first of two volumes collecting the TV column, sci fi/tv writer Ellison wrote for the LA Free Press from late 1968 through...

Slippage: Previously Uncollected, Precariously Poised Stories (1998)

The BasicsSlippage is a short story collection, which shouldn’t surprise any Ellison fans. Many of his collections have a theme, and this one has to be the saddest of all. At the time, he’d been through the wringer, and this was his last collection of new material. The term “slippage” is one he u...

Phoenix Without Ashes (1975)

So, a long while back, over a year ago, I got a copy of a godawful book for free. This book was called Low Red Moon and it was a cheapo Twilight rip-off. Girl falls in love with Werewolf who may have killed her parents, but it turns out that he’s a prosecuted minority and – okay, that sounds a he...

Ellison Wonderland (1984)

I was turned on to Ellison through the intriguing documentary Dreams with Sharp Teeth, which I followed up with the weirdly imaginative short I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. It was unconventional and murky and raw, and I wanted more. Ellison Wonderland wasn't it. The most interesting section o...

Ellison Wonderland (1984) by Harlan Ellison

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream (1984)

Harlan Ellison is an asshole.No really. He is a sexist, condescending, cocky, arrogant prick. His sense of superiority oozes out of every one of the stories' introductions in this collection. Wherever there is a female character, she is portrayed as weak, whorish or manipulative. In the intro to ...
