No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In the late 1960's Harlan Ellison launched a weekly column for the Los Angeles Free Press where he uncompromisingly discussed the effects of television on modern society. He assaulted everything from television sitcoms to corrupt politicians, talk-shows to military massacres. Today, more than four decades later, almost all of his criticism still holds true. E-Reads and Ellison's company, Edgeworks Abbey, are proud to make this second collection of 50 outspoken columns widely available for the first time in some 40 years. Don't miss the first volume: THE GLASS TEAT.
