Black cover blurb:
Among the 300 books written by Harlan Ellison (of whom the great American novelist Howard Fast has siad, "He is always original, always exciting...one does not simply read an Ellison story. One experiences it") this is his rarest.

Among those who say it is his best book are the bidders who recently spent $80 at a West Coast auction to obtain one copy of the oringal 50c first edition.  Now, for the first time in almost 15 years, this superlative collection is available again.  With a new Introduction by the author, a Foreword by Frank Robinson, co-author of The Glass Inferno, and the first book appearance of "Turnpike", a small gem accessible nowhere else, this is a major collection that will delight and horrify you: stories of the lost, the damned, the helpless, trying to get a handle on life.  Tales dealing not merely with the fantasy constructs of other Ellison books, but chillers that slice and rend and tear at the very real nightmare world we move through every day.  Storiies of racial predudice, narcotics addiction, juvenile delinquency, anti-Semitism, alienation, violence.  If you can cope with it, take a deep breatch and plunge into Harlan Ellison's world: strange dard...but always your world!

Condition: Good.
