Ellison does an excellent job of creating a unique character and tone in this story. On a planet of beautiful people, there remains a family of uggos--and the child is the ugliest of all.
The three-person crew of a spaceship crashes on an unfamiliar planet. The planet is inhabited by ant-like creatures that can form complex shapes, and through such displays the creatures can reflect the essence of who a person is back at them. This proves more than the despicable captain of the small crew can bear. In the Introduction, we are told by Theodore Sturgeon that the description in this story is very much how people on hallucinogens experience the world.
I can see what Sturgeon is saying.
The story begins with a series of vignettes about people who died for no logical reason and at the least likely times. A man in Las Vegas hits the jackpot on a slot machine. He feels compelled to engage in the very sucker-like behavior of playing the same machine again, but he wins again and then keeps winning.
All their investigation reveals is that a woman had died playing that machine some time before. The best of the stories are outstanding, and the worst of them are still intriguing and readable. Rape is a theme that repeats in a couple of stories.
Many things grow over time, and in the process earlier iterations seem This collection of short stories suffers from this in spades.
The technology is awkward, almost laughable in how clunky the predicted future is. Worse, the s superior male and hyper sexual, idiotic female is painful to read. The stories are prefaced by smug, self-satisfied 'explanations' that add nothing to the experience.
Give this a pass unless you are interested in having a reference point for how far sci-fi has come. Dave Carver Top Contributor: I first found Harlan Ellison in my teens.

The genius of Harlan Ellison is rather accurately encapsulated in this book.
I will say, though, that it's awfully slow as rather than just a collection of short stories, they have rather unnecessary segments in-between that can best be described as written masturbation.
Praising himself for his achievements and going through his life story several times, it really kills the pacing of the short stories. As good as he is at making sure the stories he writes are both developed and entertaining, it's surprising how long-winded and honestly boring his story descriptions are. Although there's enlightenment to be had in his words, I feel the majority of it is fluff to make an otherwise short collection of stories meet page demands.

Then you read these stories and it all comes back. Here is a brilliant mind and a consummate story master that actually has something marvellous to say. I love this guy with his 60's sensibilities just poured out on the page. The stories are dated, technology moving at the furious pace it does, but the characters are so humanly constructed and the emotion so cutting the occasional jarring reference can be forgotten.
The first story is my favorite followed close by Pretty Maggie Moneyeyes. Harlan Ellison has never failed to excite and disgust and scare the crap out of me. Sometimes all in one story. He is always a fantastic read and never disappoints.
This was certainly no exception.
My first reading of Ellison, and I was blown away. His style is brutal, jarring, fast-moving and chaotic. Good stories. Classics, with authors notes. In his notes, Ellison mentions that he writes as an assault, not with the intent to create something well constructed and able to withstand close rereading.
But time passes, and the limits of literary transgression have shifted a good deal since these stories were originally published. See all reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
