A collection of stories by

For the first in over 50 years, Harlan Ellison's second novel returns to print in a substantially revised and expanded form. Also included are three of Ellison's best long-form stories. This 336-page paperback features: The Sound of a Scythe, Harlan Ellison's never-before-republished second novel-appearing for the first time under the author's preferred title (the original publisher renamed it The Man With Nine Lives without Ellison's consent)-expanded by 25% from its 1960 publication and extensively rewritten by Ellison for this appearance. Virtually every page has been finessed by the author. "Mefisto in Onyx"-The Bram Stoker Award-winning novel of a telepath who's asked by his best friend to journey into the mind of a serial killer on death row. "All the Lies That Are My Life"-Ellison's novella about a world-famous writer who overshadows his best friend from beyond the grave. "The Resurgence of Miss Ankle-Strap Wedgie"-A Veronica Lake-inspired tale of a rediscovered silver-screen star's brutal return to Hollywood. An introduction by Emmy-nominated tv writer Ronald D. Moore, creator of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica and writer/producer of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Roswell, and HBO's critically acclaimed Carnivale. And a beautiful new cover by World Fantasy Award-nominated artist Jill Bauman.
