Publisher's Summary

Harlan Ellison has won more awards for imaginative literature than any other living author, but only aficionados of Ellison's singular work have been aware of another of his passions...he is a great oral interpreter of his stories. His recordings have been difficult to obtain...by his choice. In 1999, for the first time, he was lured into the studio to record this stunning retrospective.
Contents include: "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream," "Laugh Track," "Grail," "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman," "The Very Last Day of a Good Woman," "Paladin of the Lost Hour," "The Time of the Eye," "The Lingering Scent of Woodsmoke," and "A Boy and His Dog."

What the Critics Say

"Harlan Ellison is arguably the finest short story writer in science fiction today, and this collection includes some of his best (certainly his most popular) work. His writings are mature, intense, and deeply affecting...Ellison, an Audie winner for narration, skillfully reads all of the stories himself, providing the boundless energy that makes this collection a complete success."

Fantastic writing and speaking

Harlan Ellison is a fantastic writer and his speaking skills are even better! He tells it just how it's meant to be and really feels it.

some stories are good some not so much.

I find the style hard to follow and is a little crude at times for my liking. the old man in the graveyard and the one about true love were probably best
