This is our discussion of the short story:

"Eyes Of Dust" by Harlan Ellison

This story is part of Ellison's collection I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, one of our group's anthology discussion.

This is the "true beauty is on the inside" story of the collection, beloved by all us ugly people. Ellison spots it on another planet, where everyone, and everything, is beautiful, except Person, a blind youngster who's hidden away. Naturally, when the Beautiful People catch a hint of his existence, they grab the high-tech pitchforks and torches and march on the castle.

Jim (jimmaclachlan) | 2161 comments This story didn't do much for me. It just seemed obvious & not terribly imaginative.

Michael | 152 comments Another story down. A rather heavy handed treatise on the shallowness of people obsessed with beauty. In the end neither the ugly nor the beauty evolked an emotional response with me and the story left me scratching my head over Ellison rep.
