What could be better than Harlan Ellison writing his sometimes dark, sometimes funny but always engaging work? Only Harlan Ellison working with other authors, equally gifted but perhaps with different takes on the world, society and fiction. Instead of nullifying each other's thoughts, the result is a fantastic synergy which takes you on a wild ride from cover to cover. The story introductions by themselves could have been published as a standalone work as they give an insight to Ellison's work, ...more
Some awesome pairings here with Ellison working with the greats/masters of the SF genre. Most effective are the stories where he marries his sensibilities to authors more known for "Hard SF". You get he perfect blend of emotional connection to big concepts. Probably influenced Grant Morrison.

Not prime Ellison, or prime work by his collaborators either, and sometimes the introductions are more memorable than the stories. Yet even at their most larkish, the stories generally work, and Ellison's love and respect for his fellow writers is almost palpable. A curiosity, but very readable.
As is often the case with short story collections, some were very good, some were good, and some were so/so. As is often the case with a Harlan Ellison collection, half the fun is in his commentaries about the stories.

Decent collection of science fiction stories written by Harlan Ellison in collaboration with fourteen prominent colleagues.
Listened to "I See A Man Sitting In A Chair, and the Chair is Biting His Leg" and "Survivor No.1".
