5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable Ellison 1 Jun 2013
By M Poole
From the first, back in the late 60s, I have been an admirer of Ellison's work. He is a difficult author to read but if you find something worthwhile in even one story of his, you will find something in every story. He's not a comfortable author, but he's compelling. If Ray Bradbury had a HUGE chip on his shoulder, he would have written like Ellison.

Buy as many of his books as you can afford and then buy just one more. You might be dismayed, disturbed and perhaps disgusted but you will never, ever be bored.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ellison's finest hour 1 Dec 2010
By Kenneth F. Mcara VINE VOICE
Harlan Ellison's writing was long unavailable in this country, so we should be grateful that much of it is now back in print.

This is probably his best, and most famous, collection of short stories and dates from 1967. The title story is magnificent, and is allegedly one of the 10 most reprinted stories in the English language. Ellison apparently wrote it at a single sitting and then only had to make minor editorial changes before presenting it for publication. In it, 4 men and 1 woman are all that are left of the human race, along with an omniscient and omnipotent supercomputer. Without giving anything of the plot away, the title of the story becomes its final line.

Ellison can be difficult to read. At his worst he can be hectoring, self-pitying, confrontational and vengeful. He has said, for example, that he gives the names of people who bullied him at school to characters who die particularly unpleasant deaths in his stories. At his best, however, he is imaginative, inspiring and extremely thought-provoking, having also written some of the finest episodes of Star Trek - The Original Series - Series 1 - Complete - Remastered [DVD] [1966](The City on the Edge of Forever) and The Outer Limits - The Original Series - Vol. 1 [DVD] (Soldier; Demon with a Glass Hand). This collection mostly represents the latter aspect of this talented SF writer.

Didn't particularly enjoy the stories too much. Not my type of thing. I like scifi that is deeper and more concerned with the human condition.

The short story the book is named after, alone is worth the price. Fantastic author. Mouth especially is a gripping and thought provoking read.
