    1. Harlan Ellison:…Brash, insightful observer of the human condition?OR bitter, crotchety old man who just hates everyone?Uh…YES…He’s also one of my favorite short story authors. That said, you don’t go into Ellison’s stories looking for a life-affirming dose of the warm and fuzzies. There will be no walking away whistling and basking in the glow of a renewed joy of living. These stories are fingers of ice clutching at your insides and freezing your core. Raw, visceral and powerful and [...]

    2. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream: The Voice From the Edge Vol. 1: Ellison narrates his best stories brilliantlyOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureHarlan Ellison is probably one of SF’s biggest personalities. By all accounts, he’s brash, cocky, arrogant, abrasive, and obnoxious. He is also one of the most brilliant practitioners ever to hammer away at a typewriter, producing over 1,700 screenplays, novellas, short stories, essays, and pieces of criticism, etc. Perhaps his greatest contri [...]

    3. Holy shit!Ok!Let's see. Where shall I begin?I am a great soft jelly thing. Smoothly rounded, with no mouth, with pulsing white holes filled by fog where my eyes used to be. Rubbery appendages that were once my arms; bulks rounding down into legless jumps of soft slippery matter.Does Holy shit! work?A fellow reviewer on posted a review of this short story. I read a ton of reviews, and although many are quite intriguing, I do not find myself drawn or beckoned to read them.This story is many thing [...]

    4. This short story was the title of the first anthology of Ellison's that I ever read. I can't recall any more if it had any of the same stories, but I'm fairly sure all weren't the same.Here's the TOC from the page:enpedia/wiki/The_VoiIntroduction to I Have No Mouth and I Must ScreamI Have No Mouth and I Must Scream (1967) (Hugo Award winner)"Repent, Harlequin!"

    5. Incredible experience! I will never read anything by Ellison again. I will only listen to him reading.

    6. Originally posted at FanLit.fantasyliterature/reviProbably everyone who knows anything about Harlan Ellison knows he’s a jerk (please don’t sue me, Mr. Ellison). I had to consciously put aside my personal opinion of the man while listening to him narrate his audiobook I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream: The Voice From the Edge Vol. 1. I was disgusted by some of these stories, but I have to admit that even though I suspect Ellison delights in trying to shock the reader with his various forms o [...]

    7. A wonderful collection from the single most stirring author of the 20th century, read in his inimitable style, enthusiasm and love for the craft of writing.One caveat: "Fantastic Audio" certainly doesn't live up to their name. The CDs were taken from poorly recorded analog tape and the hiss is annoying. Have to turn the treble waaaay down to compensate and you can still hear it. However, the stories and Harlan's performances are, as ever, striking.

    8. Pretty good book which suffers from the fact that I have read the two main stories in this collection, I Have no Mouth And I Must Scream and "Repent Harlequin", Said the Ticktock Man. About 30 times each. Even so, Ellison is one of the great deranged lunatic geniuses in the history of literature and any time he reads his stories himself, you can be sure it will be entertaining.

    9. If you're looking for an awesome story teller, someone that acts out the characters and not just read their lines (a problem in many audiobooks), you really can't go wrong with this guy. Ellison gets into it hard, and holy wowza, his intensity is infectious. His stories are much edgier than I remember them, too. I've never read any of the stories in this audiobook, or at least I don't recall doing so. If I have, I'm glad I forgot because hearing them "fresh" was an amazing experience. My only gr [...]

    10. This is some of Harlan Ellison's best stories, narrated by the author himself. I have read many of these stories previously, but hearing the author himself read them, they take on a whole new meaning.I'm looking forward to listening to more in this series.

    11. Absolutely stunning performance by Ellison in the audiobook version, it adds so much to the characters, the tone, the tension. Some of the short stories are good, some are great, it's a nice mix. I immediately got Vol. 2 to continue listening, he's just such an energetic performer

    12. Some more fun than others, as is expected of all short story collections.This one contains my favorite A Boy and His Dog, a dystopian tale.

    13. The first collection of Ellison masterworks, read by the author in his inimitable style that deepens the impact of some already powerful tales. In addition to the title story, there are a few nifty, tightly constructed Twilight Zone-esque pieces, the novella "A Boy and His Dog," and "Grail," which Ellison claims to be his favorite accomplishment (and deeply underrated) in his introductory remarks. There are also a couple of head-scratchers that I didn't connect with, but on the whole, a good rep [...]

    14. Bloody brilliant. The stories are amongst the greatest short stories ever written, in my opinion of course, but read by Harlan Ellison himself they leap to a whole new level of genius. Absolutely incredible reading. For the last twenty plus years I have been determined to read everything HE has written. Now I have another mission - to listen to everything he reads. Hopefully it won't take me twenty years.

    15. Love "Repent Harlequin" and Ellison's dynamic readings. He has some wonderfully creative and engaging ideas, but I had a really hard time with the misogyny and rape themes Stuck it out for the unique vision but could have done without the lady-hate.

    16. This is seriously an excellent collection of some of Ellison's best short stories narrated by the author. Usually I steer away from author narration but Harlan really does an excellent job with his own material.

    17. This book has some truly messed up stories. I don't know if it is suppose to be scifi, fantasy, horror or comedy, because each story so far contains a little of each.Well that last story wasn't funny not one bit.3/5 Stars

    18. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream is a perfect horrific short story. Ellison has a darker view of humanity than I remembered when I read these in the 70's. His vision doesn't appeal to me as much as it used to.

    19. For those who already love Harlan Ellison, his reading is amazing. For those who don't, this is a great introduction.

    20. -A Boy and His Dog- was excellent. -Laugh Track_ and -Paladin of the Lost Hour- were good and the other 3 sucked.I think I read the abridged version of this because it only had 6 stories.
