Fictionwise.com Signs Harlan Ellison for eBook Short Fiction
Thirty-five award-winning and early stories from literary master

October 3, 2000 - Chatham, NJ - Fictionwise.com announced today that legendary author Harlan Ellison has granted Fictionwise.com rights to 35 of his short stories for release as eBooks. The works include award-winning Ellison stories as well as works that are no longer in print and difficult to find.

Ellison has been called "one of the great living American short story writers" by the Washington Post; and the Los Angeles Times said, "It's long past time for Harlan Ellison to be awarded the title: 20th Century Lewis Carroll."

In a career spanning more than 40 years, Ellison has been recognized for the immense diversity of his writing. He has won more major awards than any other living fantasist, including the Edgar Allan Poe award twice (mystery), the Bram Stoker award six times (horror), the Hugo Award 8˝ times and the NebulaŽ Award three times (science fiction/fantasy), the Silver Pen for Journalism, as well as awards for his extensive work in television and film. Ellison has published over 1,700 stories, essays, columns, and novels.

Harlan Ellison commented: "Watching all the blue-sky IPO websites come and go, promising the riches of Araby but delivering ashes and excuses, functioning only as sucking black holes draining off investment capital, it is some small miracle--in my view--the way Fictionwise.com operates with calm, determined professionalism to put the work out there on the web. If one needs a metaphor for their way of doing business, for their attention to detail and quality, their scrupulous honesty and respect for the creative talent in the milieu that is lousy with hot-air hustlers, adolescent hacker-thieves and just plain inept buffoons, try this: the 300 Spartans who took on all of Xerxes' vast and endless armies. Here's wishing Fictionwise.com a long and smooth highway."

Fictionwise.com (http://www.fictionwise.com) launched the first set of four Ellison stories today in the most popular eBook formats for handheld devices and personal computers. Additional stories will be added over the coming weeks.The Volume 3 and Volume 4 Award Nominated Stories Bundles include Hugo and NebulaŽ award nominated stories from Kristine Katherine Rusch, Kate Wilhelm, Mike Resnick, Nancy Kress, Geoffrey A. Landis, Gardner Dozois and John Kessel. Volume 3 contains 6 stories and Volume 4 contains 7 stories. "We're not stopping here," commented Pendergrast. "We've already acquired enough titles to make another volume of award winners and another volume of award nominated stories. They are in production now, and are expected to be available in the coming weeks."

"Ellison's work is so wide-ranging that he defies genre boundaries," said Stephen Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise. "This diversity is well represented in the titles he has granted to Fictionwise.com. They include mystery, horror, fantasy, science fiction, mainstream literature, and even a western. We are very pleased to be able to offer Harlan Ellison's work to our thousands of members."
