OTHER POSSIBLE FUTURE TITLES: Deathbird and Other Stories, Angry Candy, Sleepless Nights in the Procrustean Bed, and Slippage
The City on the Edge of Forever
I skipped the little break-line thingie since this book is also
from White Wolf. The book contains Ellison's original famous
script for Star Trek, everything Harlan ever wanted to
say about that script and its treatment, and comments from a number
of people associated with the episode and series.
Slippage is Harlan's first new story collection since Angry Candy in 1984. The trade edition from Houghton-Mifflin is now in stores everywhere.
Mark V. Ziesing Books (check out his web
site) is producing the limited edition of this book. Mark
can be reached via phone or fax at (916) 474-1580, or you can
e-mail him at 103633.2555@CompuServe.com.
Mark was also good enough to forward me the table of contents to the
book, with word counts, so you can see what's inside!
Strange and Stranger Kaddish
This new story collection, from Aardwolf Publishing, contains fantastic stories about the Jewish Faith. Ellison is represented with his story Go Toward the Light. In addition, HE's Mom is featured in STRANGER KADDISH, the follow-up to STRANGE KADDISH. Aardwolf is offering the book to Webderland Visitors at three bucks off the cover price - 9.95 plus 1.25 postage (11.20 for the non-math majors out there). Checks should go to Aardwolf Publishing, 45 Park Place South, Ste. 270, Morristown, NJ 07960. The print run is only 650 copies, so if you're interested you'd better get on the stick!
Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor
This comic book is produced by Dark Horse Comics, Inc.
(check out their web site - man,
everyone seems to have these things these days! Why do I bother?) and
features stories by Ellison illustrated by talented comics artists,
along with an original story by Harlan in each issue based on cover
art by well-known fantasy artists.
