The Essential Ellison : A 50 Year Retrospective

Updated from the popular 35-year retrospective collection, this book surveys an extra 15 years of
his work. Included here are more than 75 unabridged stories, essays, personal reminiscences, and
reviews, a complete teleplay and novella, and 16 previously uncollected stories. The Essential
Ellison presents such classics as “A Boy and His Dog,” “The Deathbird,” and “I Have No Mouth
and I Must Scream.” This expanded edition adds such important new stories as “With Virgil Oddum
at the East Pole,” “Paladin of the Lost Hour,” and “Xenogenesis,” along with the novella “Mefisto in
Onyx.”
