The vicious dictator of a future world seeks refuge in the prehistoric past; a fast-gun sheriff refuses to lay up his weapon when his days of power are ended; sharp, small teeth horribly show what can happen to a stoolie; the giant body of a cyclopean Prometheus is uncovered in an apple orchard when lightning strikes; and in the year 2074, a consumer upgrades his mutant housebeast for this year's model. These are a few of the things Harlan Ellison dreams about; these are a few of the things that will chew on your soul.
Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor sets a new standard for anthology comics, and would you expect anything less from a comic that boasts Harlan's name on the cover? He's written more than 60 books and over 1,700 short stories, essays, non-fiction articles, columns, film and television scripts, which have won him more awards for imaginative literature than any other living author (8 1/2 Hugos, 3 Nebulas, 2 Edgar Allan Poe awards of the Mystery Writers of America, 3 Bram Stoker awards of the Horror Writers of America, 2 World Fantasy Awards, the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award, the British Fantasy Award, and 4 Most Outstanding Teleplay Awards from the Hollywood Writers Guild of America... and he's the only writer ever to win four for solo work). And that's just the tip of the iceberg... or the snout of the beast!
Every week Harlan appears on the Sci-Fi Network as the controversial on screen commentator of "Sci-Fi Buzz"; his most recent short novel, Mefisto in Onyx, was bought by MGM for a quarter of a million dollars; Mind Fields, his story-and-art collaboration with Polish surrealist Jacek Yerka, has sold more than 100,000 copies since its release; and he wrote the most famous "Star Trek" episode, "City on the Edge of Forever." He is friends with the great Robin Williams and was friends with the late Lenny Bruce. Harlan Ellison has led a hundred impossible lives -- from working as a hired gun for a wealthy neurotic, to marching with Martin Luther King from Selma to Montgomery, to running with a Brooklyn street gang to gather background for a novel -- and now his first love, his lifelong connection with comics, takes physical form in a project kept absolutely secret for two long years by Dark Horse and the famous author. Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor won't merely be published or released... it will escape and run loose like candy-coated lightning.

Unlike authors who agree to have their work adapted to comics yet remain distant from the finished product, Harlan Ellison loves comics and loves that he has his own comic book. Dream Corridor is essential for die-hard Ellison fans, not only because of the 14 adaptations of his short stories, but also because it contains 5 all-new prose pieces. One of the prose pieces, "Chatting with Anubis," won the Deathrealm Award and the Horror Writers Association's Bram Stoker Award for best short story of 1995. If you're not familiar with Ellison's work, Dream Corridor is a great sampler, and it's loaded with a diversity of art styles with illustrations by top-notch artists, including Doug Wildey, Michael T. Gilbert, Gary Gianni, Teddy Kristiansen, and David Lapham. "The End Time of Leinard," "On the Slab," "Knox," "The Rough Boys," and "Cold Friend" are just a few of the stories adapted.
