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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 2/17/2014

    " As far as short stories go, this one goes straight for the jugular. It pretty much tells you right up front that humanity will destroy itself, and presents it in such a tormenting abyss of madness. I AM. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Lutz | 2/13/2014

    " Blew me away when I first read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francis | 2/6/2014

    " I've only read the story "I have no mouth and I must scream" but is is possibly one of the more fantastic short stories I have read. Five people left alive in the world who are being continually tortured by a massive super computer for its own amusement. It is saddening, uplifting, sick and twisted all at once, and it can be read online for free. Fantastic way to spend a half hour of your life "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 The Scarlet Pervygirl | 2/4/2014

    " Okay, first of all, it's not true that apes have larger penises in proportion to their body size than humans do to theirs, and secondly, Harlan, you weird fucker, I have to express a significant amount of scepticism about the idea that a woman would enjoy fucking an australopithecine just because he has a big dick. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 2/1/2014

    " Creepy, emotionally challenging, and beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rae | 2/1/2014

    " Absolutely incredible. I have not read work from such a good writer in so long. I am in love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Harrel | 1/22/2014

    " Five stars for the title story in this book, which is haunting, disturbing, and iconic, and has remained in my mind for many years after reading it. Minus one star for the rest of the stories, which didn't leave any sort of lasting impression, except perhaps the one about the monster made from meaningless sex, which was kind of silly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danilo Stern-Sapad | 1/18/2014

    " Ellison is a master of the short form. He is also a master of the disturbing. This is one of the best collections of short stories I've ever read. I especially enjoyed, "Paladin of the Lost Hour", "A Boy and His Dog", and the titular piece, "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tlingit | 1/15/2014

    " I only rate this with 5 stars because although I remember the title of the book I don't remember the stories. I read them when I was a teenager. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Hurley | 1/6/2014

    " Probably one of the reasons I read and write Sci Fi and Fantasy was my exposure to this man's writing. this was one of the first things I read of his, and it struck a chord, powerful stories, excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Monroe | 11/23/2013

    " The story "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" has stayed with me for years. One of his best, if not *the* best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandru | 11/20/2013

    " The game was also amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon gold | 11/9/2013

    " the writer alive...period. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 11/8/2013

    " I have only read the title story, but I remember it as a terrifying tale and the ending is one of the best I've ever read in a short story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victor | 10/26/2013

    " utterly, beautifully, terrifyingly human "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 9/2/2013

    " Not a lot of pages, but certainly a short-story that puts you in it right away and is very visceral. Weird, and awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Roberts | 8/28/2013

    " Ellison is one of our best writers of short fiction and any collection by him is well worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenna | 7/1/2013

    " Years later, this book still gives me a very unsettled feeling when I think of it, which is more often than I should. I kind of don't like the story for that very reason, but it's so damn effective that I can't help but greatly admire it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tess | 5/12/2013

    " I only read the title story, but I have to say that it's utterly amazing how grotesquely good this tale is. Definitely read if you're into the computer-turns-sentient genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monika | 8/1/2012

    " I read the title story a year ago, and it's stuck in my head to this day. A great short story, with a sad and affecting conclusion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee | 12/13/2011

    " One of my favorite novellas of all time. Harlan Ellison has many misses, but when he hits he hits hard and on target. Also check out Slippage, an excellent short story collection by the same author. "
