I'm almost done my next anthology: Dangerous Visions, Post MortemClick for full image

Good Show Sir Comments: Harlan Ellison has been promising to publish this for a long time. He allegedly had to wait for all the contributing authors to die off, so he could save money not paying them royalties.

Published 2017

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.76 out of 10)

    Finally! It’s also been called The Book on the Edge of Forever

  2. Bibliomancer Says:

    I assume that is a corpse mountain of contributing authors.

  3. David Cowie Says:

    No cat people, no guns, no explosions … Baen really toned it down for this one.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    🙂 Good show, sir!

  5. RachelJ Says:

    Wonderful news!

    Is it possible that GSS will now be honoured with a second visit from the great man himself?

  6. fred Says:

    Is that….the fabled Chia Pet font?

    I’m thinking today’s date may be relevant to today’s post…?

    Good Show, GSS!

    @David Cowie: You can tell this is a classy book, see? They restrained themselves and left off the cat people, guns, and explosions. It’s the pinnacle of classiness for this important work.

    The tag cloud is a thing of glory. Except the publisher is NOT unknown!

    This is currently rated #1, ahead of our old pal “I Sing”, and those creepy French covers.

  9. Tag Wizard Says:

    @GSS ex-noob – Thanks for catching the publisher. Yes it took awhile to add all the author tags. This book must be over a thousand pages long!

  10. JuanPaul Says:

    He stood upon a mound of corpses; men he had cut down not with the blade of his axe, but with the sharper blade of his pen.

  11. Francis Boyle Says:

    Needs more ting!

    It don’t mean a thing
    if it ain’t got that ting

  12. MisterBob Says:

    Needs more tags – perhaps ” girl has super glue on hands ” ?

  13. fred Says:

    Shouldn’t it be ‘skulls a-croppin’?

  14. L.B. Says:

    Is that pile of corpses representative of the authors whose stories are in the book?

  15. Harlan Ellison Says:

    OK, now that you’ve had your little joke I strongly suggest you immediately take down this post. Otherwise, I have no choice but to have my attorneys get a court order first thing Monday morning.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    In other news…I saw a turtle!

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Does need more Ting. There could be Ting off the mighty axe.

  18. THX 1138 Says:

    I don’t know what to believe anymore! (Is what I think every time I visit this site)

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @THX: may I suggest…blind obedience?

  20. JuanPaul Says:

    @gssxn No wonder Mr. Ellison is so miffed. He gets roasted on GSS and doesn’t even get any ting.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Q. What is that pile of corpses resting on?
    A. It’s just corpses all the way down!

  22. THX 1138 Says:

    @20: He thought it was pretty funny until he noticed the publisher. That was the final straw.
