Bio: SFWA Grandmaster Harlan Ellison was recently characterized by The New York Times Book Review as having "the spellbinding quality of a great nonstop talker, with a cultural warehouse for a mind." The Los Angeles Times suggested "It's long past time for Harlan Ellison to be awarded the title: 20th-century Lewis Carroll." And the Washington Post Book World said simply, "One of the great living American short story writers." He has written or edited 75 books; more than 1700 stories, essays, articles, and newspaper columns; two dozen teleplays, for which he received the Writers Guild of America most outstanding teleplay award for solo work an unprecedented four times; and a dozen movies. He won the Mystery Writers of American Edgar Allan Poe award twice, the Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker award six times (including The Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996), the Nebula three times, the Hugo 8 1/2 times, and received the Silver Pen for Journalism from P.E.N. Not to mention The World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the American Mystery Award, two Audie Awards, and a Grammy nomination for Spoken Word recordings, and the universal opinion that he is the most contentious person now walking on Earth. Mr. Ellison is currently working as a consultant and host for the new radio series Beyond 2000, a series of 267 one-hour dramatized radio adaptations of famous SF Stories for The Hollywood Theater of the Ear. He created great fantasies for The Twilight Zone (including Danny Kaye's final performance) and The Outer Limits; traveled with The Rolling Stones; marched with Martin Luther King from Selma to Montgomery; once stood off the son of a Mafia kingpin with a Remington XP-100, while wearing nothing but a bath towel; sued Paramount and ABC-TV for plagiarism and won $337,000--and probably is the most contentious person now walking the Earth. But the bottom line, as voiced by Booklist last year, is this: "One thing for sure: the man can write."

Hugo and Nebula Winner Harlan Ellison's classic post-apocalyptic saga. The cycle beings with "Eggsucker," which chronicles the early years of the association between fourtenn-year-old loner Vic and his brilliant, telepathic dog, Blood. The saga continues and expands in "A Boy and His Dog," in which Blood shows just how much smarter he is than Vic, and Vic shows how loyal he can be.
