Deathbird Stories free pdf " Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child. " Robert Heinlein, 1973A masterwork of myth and terror, "Deathbird Stories" collects nineteen of Harlan Ellison s best stories written over the course of a decade. In it, ancient gods fade as modern society creates new deities to worship gods of technology, drugs, gambling. Revolutionary when first published, the short stories contained here have won multiple honors, including the prestigious Hugo and British Science Fiction Awards. They have inspired a generation of readers and other authors to reexamine blind faith and fight against crumbling institutions. Stark and often angry, this collection strips away convention and hypocrisy and lays bare the human condition. After all, the gods we invent contain all too much of their inventors."

He was presented with the first Living Legend Award by the International Horror Critics at the 1995 World Horror Convention. Ellison is the only author in Hollywood ever to win the Writers Guild of America award for Outstanding Teleplay (solo work) four times, most recently for Paladin of the Lost Hour, his "Twilight Zone" episode that was Danny Kaye s final role, in 1987.
