About this title


The Book of Ellison is a salute to one of science fiction's greatest writers by those who know him best - his fellow writers. Published in celebration of his Guest of Honorship at the 1978 World Science Fiction Convention, this book not only captures the feelings of those who know him and his writings-Robert Silverberg, Lee Hoffman, David Gerrold, Isaac Asimov, Ted White and Joseph Patrouch Jr.-but captures the love for science fiction that Harlan has expressed through his nonfiction writings about the field. Through Harlan Ellison's own writings in The Book of Ellision, ranging from "A Time for Dying," published in the Special Harlan Ellison issue of Algol in 1967 to his "The Whore with a Heart of Iron Pyrites; or Where Does a Writer Go to Find a Maggie?" you'll come to understand Harlan's deep and continuous love affair with science fiction.
