Shatterday by Harlan Ellison


Mercurial, belligerent, passionately in love with language and wild ideas, Harlan Ellison is a writer who defies categorization. He is a master of the uncanny, the suspenseful, the weird and the wonderful.

Shatterday includes sixteen fantastic short stories and one novella guaranteed to alternately warm the hearts and freeze the blood of Harlan Ellison's old and new fans.

In the author's own words this collection is 'street fiction - horror stories for our time'. They are stories you won't forget in a hurry...
