From Harlan Ellsion, whom The Washington Post regards as "lyric poet, satirist, explorer of odd psychological corners, moralist, one-line comedian, purveyor of pure horror and black comedy,"comes Strange Wine. Discover among these tales the spirits of executed Nazi war criminals who walk Manhattan streets, the damned soul of a murderess escaped from Hell, gremlins writing the fantasies of a gone-dry writer and the exquisite Dr. D(c)¨arque Angel who deals her patients doses of deathú Anything and everything that is good about short story collections is condensed into this one book, the scope of which ranges from satire ("The New York Review Of Bird") to humor ("Working With The Little People") to outright horror (the devastating "Croatoan").

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 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.
