Phoenix, AZ U*S*A* - Wednesday December 30 1998 16:01:08

Phoenix, Arizona U.S.A. - Friday September 5 1997 01:04:30 On September 13th, 1997 Harlan appeared on "West Coast Live with Sedge Thompson", KQED (National Public Radio) in San Francisco. The show was taped on this date. I'll make it worth the while of anyone who can get me a tape of this program. Also, in mid to late September, 1997 H.E. appeared on "Between The Lines" a PBS program that airs in S.F., Philadelphia, and Chicago. I'd prefer a video tape, but I'll settle for an audio tape. Can anyone help? Thanks, Shane

MANCHESTER, UK - Saturday December 12 1998 13:12:40

Have any of you friendly Yanks got Videos of Harlan lecturing or appearing on TV? Would like to acquire copies or original tapes for a behavioural study project of genius at work - No seriously - Plus any one got a reasonable - & reasonably priced copy of MEDIA that HE did with others on the ecology et al of a planet of the same name. Please advise me of the cost of the media and the cost of shipment to the United Kingdom and your Postal Address so I can send payment by return. If you can help you would make an old man happy in his declining years. May Your God [amex, the big-bopper, et al] Go With You Regards John [Mad Jack] Sutcliffe

Tunbridge Wells, Kent England - Friday December 11 1998 19:26:25

I live in England and Ellison has not been published here for years (the last one was "Strange Wine" in the early 1980s as far as I know). I've got most of his books now, but I'm still missing "Strange Wine" - and it was Stephen King's review of this book in "Danse Macabre" which got me hooked on Ellison in the first place. Can anyone help me find a copy of this book? Thanks, Jon Malone

chapatli, jalisco mexico - Thursday November 5 1998 23:39:26

i was wondering if any good souls out there who have a copy of the story "i have no mouth and i must scream" would be willing to type it into a txt file? i know it is long, about 13 or 14 pages, but I would appreciate it so very much. Or if they know where I can get a copy. I moved to mexico a few years ago and cannot find it anywhere.

- Friday October 30 1998 22:28:11

All right, I'm throwing in the towel. I've contacted every CD-Rom resource, no one knows what the hell I'm talking about, and www.cyberdreams.com appears to be a pornography website. Does anyone, ANYONE have a copy of the game, "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" that they're willing to part with? I don't really care what it's compatable with -- I'll find a way to use it. Please, good people; hear the cry of a desperate man.

I have some books I would like to trade for HE material. One is a signed HE and the others are 1st print/1st edition Phillip K. Dick. The signed HE is the bookclub edition of Alone Against Tomorrow. You will find this edition especially priceless if your name happens to be Jerold Anderson, 'cause thats the putz that sold his autographed copy. The Phil Dick books are: Martian Time Slip - (great shape for it's age. some yellowing) Valis - Very fine shape I will listen to any reasonable offer. I'll listen to some of the unreasonable ones too, because sometimes I like to sit and laugh. If you haven't tried to read Phillip K. Dick, you should. The man's a genius.

Sacramento, CA USA - Thursday August 6 1998 07:15:45

I have a Harlan Ellison album for sale. This is vinyl. (You do remember vinyl, don't you?) On side "A" Harlan reads "Repent Harlequin!" said the Ticktock Man. On the "B" side Harlan reads Shatterday. The album plays great I just listened to it again yesterday. This is a 1981 edition. I have been told that there was an earlier edition issued in the mid-70's, but I have no idea how to look that up. I want at least the $30 I spent on the album 2 years ago. Higher offers will not only be entertained, they will be put up in the guest bedroom and treated to a gourmet dinner.

Linden, Michigan USA - Wednesday August 5 1998 15:01:24

Just made up a list of 100 very interesting books. Since it starts out with 38 by Harlan, I thought you might be interested. The remaining are by Matheson, Bloch, Lovecraft (Bart hs), Fredric Brown (SF&Myst), Dick, Beaumont and a few others. E-mail for a free copy (the price you pay will be trying to decipher it since it's formatted for a full page). Please mention you saw this in Webderland BILL (THE BOOK VAULT)

Ichikawa-shi, Chiba-ken Japan - Sunday May 24 1998 17:33:29

The first time I had ever heard of HE was in an airport waiting to go back to Japan, where I've lived most of my life. I was extremely depressed, for reasons too broad to go into here, and I pick up a copy of "Paingod and Other Delusions". The intro: "Your Basic Crown Of Thorns" washed over me like a swarm of locusts! And I mean that in a good way! That essay spoke directly to my heart and gave me a motivation for life that I didn't know I possessed. Harlan, may whatever supreme alien force you canonize bless you. You have enriched my life with your work so much! ANy thoughts on where a copy of that intro might still be in print? Yours with the respect of sycophants,Bob D.

It deals with a high school teacher in Montana fired for using "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" in her class. If anyone can lead me to the magazine in which this article appeared please e-mail me. It is an eloquent response to blatant censureship of academic freedom.

PIW is an ex-library edition with the usual stamps and markings and pocket in the back. The book, which is in basically VG condition, has a VG dust wrapper covered in plastic. I am willing to trade for any of the following in VG or better shape: the Powell paperback, the early Ace DEADLY STREETS, the Regency paperbacks, either of the early Pyramid paperbacks of RUMBLE, or one of the obscure hardbacks such as ALL THE LIES THAT ARE MY LIFE. Make an offer!

Uxbridge, Ontario Canada - Wednesday January 7 1998 21:28:02

Hello, im trying to track down a story I -think- appeared in Dangerous Visions but am not sure. It was titled Do you feel anything when I do This? My information is patchy since it comes from a friend who read it years an years ago unfortunatly but what few details he could recall have led to this search. If anybody could contact me with the name of the book(s?) it appears in would be a great help in finding it. With more than a little luck it might still be in print (faint hope) or reprinted from WhiteWolf. Oh if somebody happens to have a copy of the book with story for sale Great! which edition, pb or hc irrelevant. All I want is the one story.
