Beschreibung

Harlan Ellison has won more awards for imaginative literature than any other living author, but only aficionados of Ellison’s singular work have been aware of another of his passions…he is a great oral interpreter of his stories. His recordings have been difficult to obtain…by his choice. In 1999, for the first time, he was lured into the studio to record this stunning retrospective.
Contents include: “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream,” “Laugh Track,” “Grail,” “‘Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the Ticktockman,” “The Very Last Day of a Good Woman,” “Paladin of the Lost Hour,” “The Time of the Eye,” “The Lingering Scent of Woodsmoke,” and “A Boy and His Dog.”

Kritikerstimmen

“Harlan Ellison is arguably the finest short story writer in science fiction today, and this collection includes some of his best (certainly his most popular) work. His writings are mature, intense, and deeply affecting…Ellison, an Audie winner for narration, skillfully reads all of the stories himself, providing the boundless energy that makes this collection a complete success.” (AudioFile)

Hilfreichste

Harlan Ellisons Klassiker

Zunächst mal: Tolle Geschichten, toll vorgelesen von Autoren selbst, etwas das allzuoft schief geht, hier aber brilliant funktioniert. Einzig gute Englischkenntnisse sind empfohlen, denn Ellison liest in einem starken New Yorker Akzent.

Einen Punkt Abzug gibt es dennoch, denn die Aufnahmequalität variiert stark und macht es damit zum Teil doppelt schwer der Geschichte zu folgen.

Großartige Lesung

Ich kam zu dieser Geschichtensammlung über den empfehlendswerten SciFi-Flick "A Boy and His Dog" (1975) mit dem jungen Don Johnson. Die anderen Kurzgeschichten sind meist kein Science Fiction in diesem Sinne, bizarr und fesselnd sind sie aber allesamt.

Zur Lesung: normalerweise mache ich um Autorenlesungen einen weiten Bogen, denn wenn Du jemanden suchst, der eine Lesung maximal möglich vergurken kann, dann nimm den Autor! Harlan Ellison ist eine Ausnahme. Er ist ein begnadeter Leser, der Spaß daran hat, seine Geschichten zu vorzulesen!
