Books Info:

Shatterday free pdf Mercurial, belligerent, passionately in love with language and wild ideas, Harlan Ellison has won more awards for imaginative literature than any other living writer. Though his contemporary fantasies have been compared favorably with the dark visions of Borges, Barthelme, Poe, and Kafka, Ellison resists categorization with a vehemence that alienates critics and reviewers seeking easy pigeonholes for an extraordinary writer. The "San Francisco Chronicle" writes, The categories are too small to describe Harlan Ellison. Lyric poet, satirist, explorer of odd psychological corners, moralist, purveyor of pure horror and black comedy- he is all these and more. In this, his thirty-seventh book, setting down as never before the mortal dreads we all share, Harlan Ellison has put together his best work to date: sixteen uncollected stories (half of which are award winners), totaling a marvel-filled one hundred five thousand words and including a brand-new novella, his longest work in over a dozen years."

About Harlan Ellison

Harlan Ellison has been called one of the great living American short story writers by the "Washington Post." In a career spanning more than fifty years, he has won more awards than any other living fantasist. Ellison has written or edited one hundred fourteen books- more than seventeen hundred stories, essays, articles, and newspaper columns- two dozen teleplays- and a dozen motion pictures. He has won the Hugo Award eight and a half times (shared once)- the Nebula Award three times- the Bram Stoker Award, presented by the Horror Writers Association, five times (including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996)- the Edgar Allan Poe Award of the Mystery Writers of America twice- the Georges Melies Fantasy Film Award twice- and two Audie Awards (for the best in audio recordings)- and he was awarded the Silver Pen for Journalism by PEN, the international writers union. 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. In 2006, Ellison was awarded the prestigious title of Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. "Dreams With Sharp Teeth," the documentary chronicling his life and works, was released on DVD in May 2009."
