Well, kiddies, both Chanukah AND Christmas are just around the corner, and I'm sure Santa and Nackles would look very kindly on anyone who could supply me with an affordably-priced copy of GENTLEMAN JUNKIE. Condition isn't terribly important, as long as I can read it, and the pages are trying to sneak out of their own accord. Love to all, write soon.

Is anyone aware if there exits a web-site that's petitioning Warner about the shelved "I, Robot" script? A friend in the business mentioned that now would be the perfect time for such a movie to start production, in light of the currently booming science-fiction market. If such a site does NOT exist, I'm all set to use mine, but I don't want to move in on someone else's idea... Sorry to use the want-ad board for this type of query, but I really wanted to insure finding a response. Thanks.

SORRY! I did a search AGAIN on Bibliofind and this time came up with MANY MANY ELLISON BOOKS! Weird--last time, it came up with only 1 book. Don't ya just LOVE little computer searchengine quirks! So, Bibliofind (www.bibliofind.com) DOES have hundreds of Ellison books as well!

CORRECTION ABOUT BOOK SEARCH SITES IN PREVIOUS AD: Bibliofind does not, apparently, have many Ellison books anymore. However, Advanced Book Exchange came up with 990 listings when I did a search for "books by Ellison, Harlan". *********************** The searchable website is, once again, www.abebooks.com ******************** Hope that helps!

This is not a plug, but fans in the know should be well advised to check out ebay.com and do a Harlan search. I've found many items and encourage others to do the same. Many things HERC doesn't offer, though you should first check there. Good luck!

Hiya, Anyone got a copy of Mr. Ellison's appearance on KGO radio from September of 1997? He was on with Shaun Nix (Sean Knicks?). I've probably got the spelling wrong on the name, but this was from the San Francisco area. I have some recordings to trade. Thanks! Mike S.

Does anyone know whether the New Twilight Zone episode of "Paladin of the Lost Hour," originally aired in November of 1985, is available on video? I taped the episode originally when it aired, but it has since been damaged. I know that the original "Zone" episodes are on video, but I don't know about the later series.

Would anyone be interested in the Mad Dog Graphics comic books 1 and 2, "Vic and Blood: The Chronicles Of A Boy And His Dog"? I picked them up several years ago, but I'm not a comic book collector, I have the story itself in paperback, and I don't have much of a use for the comic version (oh, if only I could get them autographed!) They're in very good shape, with glossy color covers and black-and-white illustrations inside, in plastic covers. E-mail me with any responses; don't bother the keeper of this site about them, the man's got enough troubles.

I am looking for the only two collections of Harlan's essays that have so far managed to elude me - "The Book of Ellison" and "Sleepless Nights in the Procrustean Bed." If you own these and are willing to sell, or can direct me to an individual or company who can assist me, kindly do so. You'll feel much better about yourself. Honest. I cannot make a book-for-book trade, as my entire collection is on loan to a friend, but I am willing to pay any reasonable offers.

I am looking for a replacement copy of a book loaned in an uncharacteristic fit of generosity to an inconsiderate, selfish ex-friend. I don't remember the books title, but it was a paperback anthology of science fiction stories on the theme of future sex. There was a picture of a female robot on the cover. The book contained a story by HE and also one by Joanna Russ if that's any help. Can anyone tell me the title of the book or the name of its editor? Don't ask me why I can't remember the name of a book that's obviously so important to me. If anyone has the book and wants to trade I would perfectly willing to trade both GLASS TEAT books (PB, decent cond.). Thanks in advance.

To Alyson (re message of Aug 30): That light blue book with the babies popping out of the flowers is _Dreams With Sharp Teeth_, which is a three-book omnibus collection released by the Quality Paperback Book Club in 1991. It contains the three story collections _I Have No Mouth & I Must Scream_, _Deathbird Stories_ and _Shatterday_, plus a new introduction written especially for the three-volume collection, PLUS three selections added to account for two stories repeating among the original three books. The bonus bits are called "A Friend to Man," "The Sky is Burning" and "Memoir." The first two are stories, the third an essay relevant to the story "I Have no Mouth, and I Must Scream." I don't have an extra copy of it or anything, but keep your eyes open in the used book stores and maybe you'll find it.

Hi. A friend of mine brought in one of Harlan's old books which contained "I have no mouth...and I must scream" and "Paingod" and bunch of other stories involving gargolyes and a sex-crazed alien. I can't remember the name of the book, but if anyone can tell me or better yet has a copy of it, please let me know. It was a light blue cover with a bunch of babies and flowers on it(I think). Thanks.

Folks not in the USA: Was talking to Harlan about my upcoming Europe trip and he wanted me to pick up any foreign language versions of his work I found. I thought I might also ask you folks out there to let me know if you see anything unusual in your travels or daily life. If you do, please e-mail me and I'll see if HE is interested. He can come up with equal value merchandise (autographed) OR just pay you for cost + shipping.

Whoops. I forgot to add my last item, which is a true (Easton Press) First Edition of Angry Candy. It is, of course, signed by Ellison, leatherbound, with a ribbon bookmark sewn in. To be accurate, the book is probably near fine, because of the slightest trace of rubbing on the base of the rear cover. I'll take the best offer on this one. Thanks.

I'm sure...somewhere in an Ellison book is the quote: "To live is to war with trolls" or something like that. I'm sure it's somewhere. I have been digging through my collection for days and cannot find it. I'm pretty sure HE *didn't* say it; I'd like to know wo did. It's a quote accompanying an intro or story. Can someone point me in the right direction? and e-mail would be appreciated.

I've got a copy for sale here, unread, unopened, and signed on the back by old HE himself. I've seen estimates on this book ranging from $125 to $185 and up. If you're interested, make me an offer -- the price is negotiable, and I could definitely use the money.

Bill Donnelly was a creep and a mooch in 1982 when he tried to get me to write something for him for nothing. The fact that his anthology went nowhere was due to the fact that he tried to get people to write something for nothing. I would appreciate it if no one bought his letter because he's still a creep. He's still a mooch. And he's still trying to get something for nothing.

Though I like it, I was wondering if anyone had any copies of any book that Mr. Ellison has written that they would be willin' to trade. I am kind of new to Harlan's stuff, butt am now addicted and want more! I would especially be interested in a copy of "Shatterday", but will gladly accept anything.

Chico, CA USA - Tuesday, February 18, 1997 at 23:02:45 (CST)

I have a signed letter from HE on his letterhead circa 1982 "ripping me a new asshole". The content is a reply to a request for him to write a 100-word short story for an anthology of short stories (titled "Century"), but to do so "on spec". He didn't care much for that idea. His caustic reply is somewhere over 100 words and is as well written as any of his short stories. The point being that he could have just as easily written the short story. Included are two letters from Robert Silverburg. The first one praising our idea, initially, and the second MUCH less enthusiastic after (apparently) discussing the idea with his "good friend", HE. The project, unfortunately, never coalesced (not because of HE or RS, but because other BIG authors declined, such as Heinlein, Clarke and Bradbury). HE also "bad mouths" (IMO) writer Jessica/Amos Salmonson by implication. A once-in-a-lifetime find for the discriminating collector. These letters are for sale to the highest bidder (at my descretion). Starting at $100. Make an offer.
