Title: The Beast That Shouted Love at the Heart of the World
Author: Harlan Ellison ‾ Harlan Jay Ellison was an American writer, known for his prolific and influential work in New Wave speculative fiction, and for his outspoken, combative personality. Robert Bloch, the author of Psycho, described Ellison as ″the only living organism I know whose natural habitat is hot water″.
His published works include more than 1,700 short stories, novellas, screenplays, comic book scripts, teleplays, essays, and a wide range of criticism covering literature, film, television, and print media. Some of his best‾known work includes the Star Trek episode ″The City on the Edge of Forever″, his A Boy and His Dog cycle, and his short stories ″I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream″ and ″ ′Repent, Harlequin!′ Said the Ticktockman″. He was also editor and anthologist for Dangerous Visions (1967) and Again, Dangerous Visions (1972). Ellison won numerous awards, including multiple Hugos, Nebulas, and Edgars.

Book Details: Bound in orange textured paper‾covered boards with red spine lettering and red top‾edge text block, this signed first hardcover edition published by the Book of the Month Club retains its original dust jacket designed by Leo and Diane Dillon. Reportedly, the textual changes in the paperback are corrected here.
â€œIt is wholly inaccurate to categorize what Harlan Ellison writes as â€œscience fiction” even as it is pejorative to call the stories of Edgar Allan Poe â€œdetective fiction” or the novels of A. B. Guthrie â€œwesterns”. Poe wrote Poe‾stories,, Guthrie told Guthrie‾stories, and Harlan Ellisonâ€™s visions are peculiarly his own. â€œFantasies” might be closer, yet no fantasist working today manages to trap the mist of fantasy in the Klein Bottle of contemporary events as well as the author of these fifteen strange and strangely‾disturbing stories. A summary of the wonders in this largest single collection of Mr. Ellisonâ€™s recent work reads like the itinerary for a trip down a bottomless rabbit hole.” (From the dust jacket)
