Other Literary Forms
Though his reputation rests primarily with the short story, Harlan Ellison has abundantly produced novels, essays, anthologies, and scripts for the motion-picture industry and television. Two highly influential anthologies, Dangerous Visions (1967) and Again, Dangerous Visions (1972), critique his own work and that of others. He contributed scripts to many popular television series in the 1960’s and 1970’s and adapted his story “A Boy and His Dog” for film in 1975. His essays, which comment on a broad range of social issues, have been collected in a number of volumes, including The Glass Teat: Essays of Opinion on the Subject of Television (1969), An Edge in My Voice (1986), Harlan Ellison’s Watching (1989), and The Harlan Ellison Hornbook (1990). He also published I, Robot: The Illustrated Screenplay, an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s novel, in 1994.
