Publisher's Summary

Harlan Ellison's masterwork of myth and terror as he seduces all innocence on a mind-freezing odyssey into the darkest reaches of mortal terror and the most dazzling heights of Olympian hell in his finest collection. Deathbird Stories is a collection of 19 of Harlan Ellison's best stories, including Edgar and Hugo winners, originally published between 1960 and 1974. The collection contains some of Ellison's best stories from earlier collections and is judged by some to be his most consistently high-quality collection of short fiction. The theme of the collection can be loosely defined as God, or gods. Sometimes they're dead or dying, some of them are as brand-new as today's technology. Unlike some of Ellison's collections, the introductory notes to each story can be as short as a phrase and rarely run more than a sentence or two.

wonderful and brilliantly written

I love Ellison's work. He was a great writer. He wrote brilliant imaginative fiction. That's all there is to it I guess. Oh, and though he was a good narrator, I personally like his stories better when someone else besides him narrates them. Like this one. I thought this narrator, Luis Moreno I reckon, did a very good job.
