Harlan Ellison passed away on June 27 2018. Considered one of the best (he would say the best) writer of speculative fiction of the 20th Century. Although a bit forgotten about for the past 30 years he was a legendary writer and this book contains his best works. The fiction is very blunt and at times hard to take with shocking language and violent imagery. There isn’t much joy or love here just anger and despair. Regardless of the intent the result is wonder at the high level of creativity it took to create a multitude of worlds and characters.
