I just heard an interview with Harlan Ellison on NPR. I'd like to read one of his books. Can you make a recommendation? If I were only to read just one, it should be....
"City on the Edge of Forever". It's not really pleasant, but I'm a sucker for Star Trek :-)
If you'd like to read some of his essays and short stories, you could try "Edgeworks One: Over the Edge and An Edge in My Voice". The essays sound just like him - he does like to rant!
Harlan's books aren't happy happy joy joy, the titles of his books alone are ...well, how would you classify a book called "Paingod and Other Delusions"? I prefer Harlan more as an editor - like his famous "Again, Dangerous Visions", which sadly is very dated now.
Or you could just rent the DVD of "A Boy and His Dog" with a very very young Don Johnson playing the lead. It's a hoot! It's an adaptation of Harlan's novella by the same name.
