Sleepless Nights in the Procrustean Bed free pdf Harlan Ellison--master essayist, gadfly, literary myth figure, and viewer of dark portent--has been, for the greater part of his life, a burr under the saddle of complacency. In this collection, his former assistant and confidante, Marty Clark, has culled from hundreds of rare and un-reprinted works to select twenty wide-ranging essays--nonfiction writings ranging from travelogue to media criticism, literary exploration to personal musing--that demonstrate why the monstre sacre of imaginative literature won the prestigious Silver Pen award from PEN International for his journalistic forays.

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.
