Over the course of his legendary career, Harlan Ellison has defied—and sometimes defined—modern fantasy literature, all while refusing to allow any genre to claim him. A Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers Association as well as winner of countless awards, including the Hugo, Nebula, Edgar Allan Poe, and Bram Stoker, Ellison is as unpredictable as he is unique, irrepressible as he is infuriating.
Over thirty titles in Ellison’s brilliant catalog are now available in an elegant new package featuring Ellison himself. Genius never felt so combustible. Again, Dangerous Visions is the classic companion to the most essential science fiction anthology ever published, and includes forty-six original stories edited and with introductions by Harlan Ellison, featuring John Heidenry, Ross Rocklynne, Ursula K. Le Guin, Andrew J. Offutt, Gene Wolfe, Ray Nelson, Ray Bradbury, Chad Oliver, Edward Bryant, Kate Wilhelm, James B. Hemesath, Joanna Russ, Kurt Vonnegut, T. L. Sherred, K. M. O’Donnell (Barry N. Malzberg), H. H. Hollis, Bernard Wolfe, David Gerrold, Piers Anthony, Lee Hoffman, Gahan Wilson, Joan Bernott, Gregory Benford, Evelyn Lief, James Sallis, Josephine Saxton, Ken McCullough, David Kerr, Burt K. Filer, Richard Hill, Leonard Tushnet, Ben Bova, Dean Koontz, James Blish and Judith Ann Lawrence, A. Parra (y Figueredo), Thomas M. Disch, Richard A. Lupoff, M. John Harrison, Robin Scott, Andrew Weiner, Terry Carr, and James Tiptree Jr.

Dangerous Visions by Harlan Ellison were a turning point in science fiction. Ellison sought out stories that broke the old mold of science fiction as pulp fiction and that made a social statement. It was so successful and won so many awards that a sequal, Again, Dangerous Visions was published. Unlike many sequals, this one lived up to the origianl.read more
A long, long anthology, with quite a few good stories, and a few stories the inclusion of which left me baffled. Ellison's preface and introductions, which I had enjoyed in the original anthology, grew increasingly irritating here, and I gave up on reading them about halfway through. My favorite stories were all by women authors: Joanna Russ' superb "When It Changed" is perhaps the most effective feminist scifi I have ever read; the entries from Kate Wilhelm, James Tiptree, Jr, and Ursula Le Guin were also very strong. I can admire the ambition behind entries from Piers Anthony and Richard Lupoff, even if neither was completely successful.read more
A mammoth achievement of speculative fiction. ADV is even better than its predecessor and makes it all the worse that The Last Dangerous Visions has not been published (over 40 years after it was promised). Overall, my tastes matched up with Ellison's and I really enjoyed his introductions. I was surprised to find several authors here I already read in ADV.read more
