This may be a book that is geared to those who already know and love (or at least appreciate) Harlan Ellison. I do know that I would not use it as an introduction to Harlan ¿ but, really, that can¿t be the purpose of such a work.I love this book, and I was disappointed. Love it because I am a fan and remember fondly many of the contained quotes. Disappointed because, somehow, I wanted more. I have heard Harlan speak on a number of occasions, and I know he has a LOT out there. This book felt abbreviated, as if it went for the easier quotes rather than working to find the pearls he has thrown out there over the years. That being said, there are over 100 quotes (some titles of his works, some directly from his works, and some thrown out during various talks, conversations, and speeches), many of which will, if you pause long enough to look, make you think just a little bit more about¿things. (And more than a few that should make you laugh out loud.)
