The Beast That Shouted Love at the Heart of the World: Stories

前表紙
Open Road Media, 2014/04/01 - 300 ページ
Fifteen masterpieces of speculative short fiction, including Hugo and Nebula Award–winning stories from the acclaimed author of Shatterday.
 
“These are not stories that should be forgotten; and some of you are about to read them for the first time . . . I envy you.” —Neil Gaiman, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of American Gods, from his Foreword
 
In a post-apocalyptic future, fifteen-year-old Vic wanders the wasteland with Blood, his genetically-altered telepathic dog, in a struggle for survival against violent marauders, deadly radioactive insects, and an underground community desperate to restore the human race in the Hugo Award–nominated and Nebula Award–winning novella, “A Boy and His Dog,”—the basis of the cult classic film.
 
An intergalactic conspiracy infects the minds of the most powerful politicians in the Republican Party—and only one jolly old elf can save them in “Santa Claus vs. S.P.I.D.E.R.”
 
And in the Hugo Award–winning title story, disparate threads of violence, conflict, and conversation weave an intricate tapestry across worlds and times in an experimental tour-de-force of the imagination.
 
This groundbreaking collection brings together some of Harlan Ellison’s most innovative and intriguing stories, frightening and funny visions of human nature that can only come from the peerless Grand Master of Science Fiction.
 
“One of the great living American short story writers.” —The Washington Post
 
Includes: “The Beast That Shouted Love at the Heart of the World,” “Along the Scenic Route,” “Phoenix,” “Asleep: With Still Hands,” “Santa Claus vs. S.P.I.D.E.R.,” “Try a Dull Knife,” “The Pitll Pawob Division,” “The Place With No Name,” “White on White,” “Run For the Stars,” “Are You Listening?,” “S.R.O.,” “Worlds to Kill,” “Shattered Like a Glass Goblin,” “A Boy and His Dog”

著者について (2014)

Harlan Ellison (1934–2018), in a career spanning more than fifty years, wrote 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 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 Allan Poe 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. He passed away in 2018 at the age of eighty-four.
