APPROACHING OBLIVION: ROAD SIGNS ON THE TREADMILL OF TOMORROW. Harlan Ellison.

APPROACHING OBLIVION: ROAD SIGNS ON THE TREADMILL OF TOMORROW.

New York: Walker and Company, 1974. Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed by Ellison on the title page. Collects eleven stories. "Typically top-of-the-voice tales-some sf, some fantasy-by one of the fields leading performers." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 17. "[Ellison's stories] are terrifying and vicious, immersive and gut-wrenching, and span from baroque far future speculations to near future warnings. Above all, they are well-written and intelligent. Many are infused with (pseudo) autobiographical content and lament the societal ills that Ellison sees as most pervasive and dangerous and most of the time he believes it’s futile to do anything about it." - book review by Joachim Boaz, August, 2013 at Science Fiction and Other Suspect Ruminations (blog). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. (19643). Item #19643
