A decent collection of stories by Ellison. Most of them are pretty good, taken as pure entertainment, though the ones in which he tries to make some kind of point are typically pretty bad thematically. But Ellison's narration of his own work is really fantastic. A special treat is Robert Bloch's reading of his story "A Toy for Juliette" from the Ellison-edited Dangerous Visions sci-fi anthology, included here as context for Ellison's story "The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World" which is a direct sequel to Bloch's.
