Harlan Ellison

Bio: SFWA Grandmaster Harlan Ellison was recently characterized by The New York Times Book Review as having "the spellbinding quality of a great nonstop talker, with a cultural warehouse for a mind." The Los Angeles Times suggested "It's long past time for Harlan Ellison to be awarded the title: 20th-century Lewis Carroll." And the Washington Post Book World said simply, "One of the great living American short story writers." He has written or edited 75 books; more than 1700 stories, essays, articles, and newspaper columns; two dozen teleplays, for which he received the Writers Guild of America most outstanding teleplay award for solo work an unprecedented four times; and a dozen movies. He won the Mystery Writers of American Edgar Allan Poe award twice, the Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker award six times (including The Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996), the Nebula three times, the Hugo 8 1/2 times, and received the Silver Pen for Journalism from P.E.N. Not to mention The World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the American Mystery Award, two Audie Awards, and a Grammy nomination for Spoken Word recordings, and the universal opinion that he is the most contentious person now walking on Earth. Mr. Ellison is currently working as a consultant and host for the new radio series Beyond 2000, a series of 267 one-hour dramatized radio adaptations of famous SF Stories for The Hollywood Theater of the Ear. He created great fantasies for The Twilight Zone (including Danny Kaye's final performance) and The Outer Limits; traveled with The Rolling Stones; marched with Martin Luther King from Selma to Montgomery; once stood off the son of a Mafia kingpin with a Remington XP-100, while wearing nothing but a bath towel; sued Paramount and ABC-TV for plagiarism and won $337,000--and probably is the most contentious person now walking the Earth. But the bottom line, as voiced by Booklist last year, is this: "One thing for sure: the man can write."

2 An Edge in My Voice [MultiFormat]

3 Approaching Oblivion [MultiFormat]

4 Children of the Streets [MultiFormat]
by Harlan Ellison
  When he's down, kick for the head and groin. Avoid cops. Play it cool. There aren't many rules in the primer for gang kids, but they all count. They're all easily understood, because they use a simple and sound philosophy--it's a stinking life, so get your kicks while you can. The gang is home, take what you want, tell them nothing--and don't get caught. Two gangs of juvenile delinquents run riot in New York City. They constantly try to outdo each other with their clothes, weapons, language and ... more info>> (Published: 1961)

13 Memos From Purgatory [MultiFormat]
by Harlan Ellison
  Hemingway said, "A man should never write what he doesn't know." In the mid-fifties, Harlan Ellison--kicked out of college and hungry to write--went to New York to start his writing career. It was a time of street gangs, rumbles, kids with switchblades and zip guns made from car radio antennas. Ellison was barely out of his teens himself, but he took a phony name, moved into Brooklyn's dangerous Red Hook section and managed to con his way into a "bopping club." What he experienced (and the time ... more info>> (Published: 1961)

  YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FEAR ITSELF! The only trouble is, fear comes in so many different shapes and sizes these days. It comes as rejection by a beautiful woman. It comes in the brutalization of your love by an amoral man. It comes with the threat of impending nuclear holocaust; with the slithering shadows in the city streets; with the ripoff artists who lie in wait behind every television commercial. Fear is the erratic behavior of all the nut cases and whackos walking the streets--they l... more info>> (Published: 1975)
