I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

Among Ellison's more famous stories, two consistently noted as his very best ever are the Hugo Awardwinning, postapocalyptic title story of this collection of seven shorts and the volume's concluding story, Pretty Maggie Moneyeyes. Since Ellison himself strongly resists categorization of his work, we will not call them science fiction, or SF, or speculative fiction or horror or anything else except compelling reading experiences that are utterly unique. They could only have been written by the great Harlan Ellison, and they are incomparably original.
