Harlan Ellison has won more awards for imaginative literature than any other living author, but only aficionados of Ellison’s singular work have been aware of another of his passions…he is a great oral interpreter of his stories. His recordings have been difficult to obtain—by his choice. In 1999, for the first time, he was lured into the studio to record this stunning retrospective. Contents include: “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream,” “Laugh Track,” “Grail,” “‘Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the Ticktockman,” “The Very Last Day of a Good Woman,” “Paladin of the Lost Hour,” “The Time of the Eye,” “The Lingering Scent of Woodsmoke,” and “A Boy and His Dog.”
