About this product
- DescriptionRemember Charles Bronson stalking the streets of New York blowing holes in muggers in Death Wish ? Remember Glenn Ford standing off the vicious juvenile delinquents in Blackboard Jungle ? Well, it is more than fifty years and two different worlds from 1955 to w. And something the author of these stories kws that you are scared to admit is that reality and fantasy have flip flopped. They have switched places. The stories that scare you today are the ones about rapists and thugs, psychos who will carve you for a dollar and hypes who will bust your head to get fixed. Glenn Ford s world was yesterday, and Bronson s is today. And in the stalking midnight of this book, one of America s top writers, Harlan Ellison, invades the shadows of both!
- Author BiographyHarlan 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.
