The Essential Ellison A 50 Year Retrospective Read & Download ¿ 5 Reviews a complete teleplay and novella and 16 previously uncollected stories The Essential Ellison presents such classics as A Boy and His Dog The Deathbird and I Have No Mouth and I. Harlan Ellison is an absolute giant in the world of speculative fiction as most people are aware His short fiction is among the most often cited examples of how to do it right and uite honestly should be studied by all who endeavor to write well themselves This massive collection includes over 80 pieces of his work including science fiction horror humor main stream fiction and several rather pointed essays That sounds like a lot of material but with Ellison s output of over 1700 stories as of 1999 it barely scratches the surfaceSo how to select the proper mix of stories for such a 50 Year retrospective I have no idea but the editors have done a fine job in my opinion Included are stories from Ellison s youth the first of which is dated 1949 as well as major classics of speculative fiction such as I have No Mouth and I Must Scream A Boy and His Dog Repent Harleuin Said the Ticktockman and The Deathbird You ll find the classic Ellison stories in anthologies everywhere but this volume digs deeper and allows us to take a sort of journey along his career at least up until 2001 when this was published We are also exposed to several essays which shed an honest light on Ellison s rather notorious mean spiritedness It s refreshing to read his side of the story and while it s evident that he is not a person to be bullied his masterful ability with the written word even in a letter to a publisher is fascinatingI read this collection over many months but I ve read every bit of it now I ve come away with a deep appreciation for Ellison s work as well as his approach to life If I had to pick one piece within this collection that was most inspiring it would not be a story at all but rather his Introduction to Tired Old Man written in 1975 It describes what Ellison himself considers among his favorites of his own work and describes how it came to be written based on an apparent supernatural experience of the author s A truly great collection Highly recommended Love Is a Four Letter Word youth the first of which is dated 1949 as well as major classics of speculative fiction such as I have No Mouth and I Must Scream A Boy and His Dog Repent Harleuin Said the Ticktockman and The Deathbird You ll find the classic Ellison stories in anthologies everywhere but this volume digs deeper and allows us to take a sort of journey along his career at least up until 2001 when this was published We are also exposed to several essays which shed an honest light on Ellison s rather notorious mean spiritedness It s refreshing to read his side of the story and while it s evident that he is not a person to be bullied his masterful ability with the written word even in a letter to a publisher is fascinatingI read this collection over many months but I ve read every bit of it now I ve come away with a deep appreciation for Ellison s work as well as his approach to life If I had to pick one piece within this collection that was most inspiring it would not be a story at all but rather his Introduction to Tired Old Man written in 1975 It describes what Ellison himself considers among his favorites of his own work and describes how it came to be written based on an apparent supernatural experience of the author s A truly great collection Highly recommended
