The Ace Paperback Barclay Shaw Covers
In the early 80's, Ace reprinted much of Ellison's backlist. One of
Harlan's favorite artists, Barclay Shaw, did the covers for all of the
paperbacks. These were the first HE books I ever bought, and the most
expensive one (The Other Glass Teat) was only $3.50. They
aren't the best scans you'll see, sometimes faded and creased, but the
artwork is wonderful and I wouldn't trade a single one of these much-loved
books in on a new copy.
I Have No Mouth & I Must Scream
The Deadly Streets
Gentleman Junkie (and other stories of the hung-up generation)
Love Ain't Nothin' But Sex Mispelled

Stuart did the covers for two of the UK paperback releases of Ellison's

The Dream Corridor Comic Books
This excellent series features Ellison stories adapted for the medium
by various lauded talents in the field. The lynchpin of the series is
a new work of art featured on each cover - an artwork for which Ellison
invents and writes an original story featured within the issue.
I have all but the original special produced before the first issue.
The book has been converted to a book format, and after a long hiatus
will reappear soon as a quarterly publication.
