I Have No Mouth & I Must Scream

In a post-apocalyptic world, four men and one woman are all that remain of the human race, brought to near extinction by an artificial intelligence. Programmed to wage war on behalf of its creators, the AI became self-aware and turned against humanity. The five survivors are prisoners, kept alive and subjected to brutal torture by the hateful and sadistic machine in an endless cycle of violence.

This story and six more groundbreaking and inventive tales that probe the depths of mortal experience prove why Grand Master of Science Fiction Harlan Ellison has earned the many accolades to his credit and remains one of the most original voices in American literature.

Paingod and Other Delusions

Robert Heinlein says, “This book is raw corn liquor—you should serve a whiskbroom with each shot so the customer can brush the sawdust off after he gets up from the floor.” Perhaps a mooring cable might also be added as necessary equipment for reading these eight wonderful stories. They not only knock you down … they raise you to the stars. Passion is the keynote as you encounter the Harlequin and his nemesis, the dreaded Tictockman, in one of the most reprinted and widely taught stories in the English language; a pyretic who creates fire merely by willing it; the last surgeon in a world of robot physicians; a spaceship filled with hideous mutants rejected by the world that gave them birth. Touching, gentle, and shocking stories from an incomparable master of impossible dreams and troubling truths.

From the Land of Fear

Eleven side trips to the dark edge of imagination by master storyteller Harlan Ellison, From the Land of Fear presents some of the author’s early work from his start in the late fifties. Here you can see a vibrant, imaginative young writer honing his craft and sowing the seeds of what would become his brilliant career, including the standout piece “Soldier,” a clever antiwar tale included both in shortstory form and as a screenplay for TV’s The Outer Limits. True Ellison fans will enjoy this collection as a chance to see the writer’s growth over time. As Roger Zelanzy says in his wonderful introduction, “He is what he is because of everything he’s been up until the Now.”

Об авторе

Harlan Ellison (1934–2018), in a career spanning more than fifty years, wrote or edited one hundred fourteen books; more than seventeen hundred stories, essays, articles, and newspaper columns; two dozen teleplays; and a dozen motion pictures. He won the Hugo Award eight and a half times (shared once); the Nebula Award three times; the Bram Stoker Award, presented by the Horror Writers Association, five times (including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996); the Edgar Allan Poe Award of the Mystery Writers of America twice; the Georges Melies Fantasy Film Award twice; and two Audie Awards (for the best in audio recordings); and he was awarded the Silver Pen for Journalism by PEN, the international writers’ union. He was presented with the first Living Legend Award by the International Horror Critics at the 1995 World Horror Convention. Ellison is the only author in Hollywood ever to win the Writers Guild of America award for Outstanding Teleplay (solo work) four times, most recently for “Paladin of the Lost Hour,” his Twilight Zone episode that was Danny Kaye’s final role, in 1987. In 2006, Ellison was awarded the prestigious title of Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Dreams with Sharp Teeth, the documentary chronicling his life and works, was released on DVD in May 2009. He passed away in 2018 at the age of eighty-four.

    This layout of this beyond annoying. Absolutely no way to navigate this well. Couldn’t even find the story I was looking for.

    Literally what fucking chapter is the book?

    Chapter 3, starts 3 minutes in. Whoever thought this was a good audiobook format deserves to be tortured by AM.

    I can remember reading these novel years and years ago and I HAVE NO MOUTH AND I MUST SCREAM is a story that struck me to the core in many ways. I re-read it many times over the years and often wondered what was in Ellison’s mind when he wrote it.

    Now, I understand it as I am living through man’s jet speeding toward total annihilation, the building of bigger and better machines to “EASE” the burden of mankind having to do ANYTHING that requires movement and thought.

    The ending of this tale tells me one thing; that even a machine cannot live in loneliness and needs company of one single entity that it can manipulate and torture at its own whim, but NEVER destroy because then it too would be alone with a mouth that would scream but there would be NO ONE TO HEAR!
