Hello SF Buffs,

I have The Essential Ellison: A 35-Year Retrospective, Ed. & Into. by Terry 

This is an almost 1000 page collection of Sort Stories and Novellas by a master 
of science fiction, influenced by Alfred Bester and Ray Bradbury, to whom the 
volume is dedicated, and by Rod Serling though he is not mentioned. Some of his 
scripts were sold to Star Trek and Twilight Zone and his tales range from 
quirky humor to nightmares. His writing style matches his subject but whatever 
the topic you will not soon forget his tales. Members of the SF Club will be 
reading one of his stories as the first entry in The Science Fiction Hall of 
Fame, Vol. III, to be discussed Aug. 14. 

The book is too big for me to handle and I do not have the strength to press 
down on it as hard as will be necessary. If I could put it back together I 
might have it taken apart as it is in sections but it is sewn as well as glued. 
Each sewn section could be dealt with  and then reglued but however it gets 
done  would be okay with me. The book was published by the Nemo Press and the 
Copyright is 1987 by The Kilimanjaro Corporation. There is a note under the 
copyright information that for written permission to reproduce this must be 
obtained from the author or the author's agent, address included on the 
copyright page.  I don't know what the arrangement is between Bookshare and 
American publishers but I suspect his permission will not be difficult to get 
if needed. 

I would love to be able to read the rest of the stories and this, while not an 
all inclusive collection, this collection has 67 of his best stories. He has 
publish over 40 books. 


If it be now, 'tis not to come; If it be not to come, it will be now;
If it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all.
