For the third time, down that multi-colored rabbit hole to the unpredictable, singular, frequently disturbing Ellison Wonderland of the writer the New York Times summed up thus: “Harlan Ellison has the spellbinding quality of a great nonstop talker with a cultural warehouse for a mind.” And this third expedition comes not a moment too soon…at exactly the moment a brilliant new film documentary, Dreams with Sharp Teeth, a film of the life and work of Harlan Ellison is beginning its premieres across America.
Here, in eleven stories, a true memoir, five brand-new commentaries, and a linked horror story of Jack the Ripper by Ellison’s great friend, the late Robert Bloch, the mesmerizing audio performance by the Author provides full measure of reason why Ellison has won Listen Up, Audio, and a shelf full of other awards including investiture as one of the few Grand Masters of the literature of the fantastic. This one is the best yet.
