[ Pdf Mefisto in Onyx ¾ world-of-warcraft PDF ] by Harlan Ellison ¿ Stephen King recommended author King calls Harlan Ellison a ferociously talented writer.
One of Ellison s few long form novella length stories, brilliant Harlan told a story once about Roland Emmerich Director of crap movies like Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, etc coming to pitch for rights to the film rights He described Emmerich as speaking like a valley girl with a German accent Bang on Also, my reviews will not spoil anything, in fact, they may not even say much about the story But this is a good one, one of Harlan s best.
I don t think I ve ever read a book before and wished it was a graphic novel, but with this one I did Maybe it was a combo of the cover and the intro by Frank Miller that put the thought in my head, but whilst I was reading it I kept thinking this is really shitty narration all telling, no showing, repetitive and would be a MUCH cooler albeit graphic graphic novel So.
in that way it was a let down Plus, apparently he s won a lot of awards and people tend to like his prose style.
but I wasn t much of a fan It was too thriller esque And the plot was pretty interesting and original, I guess, except it was simultaneously predictable I predicated the ending.
but not the VERY ending which has a little twist So.
eh If this whole book is an allegory vieled social commentary about black people and the prison system whi The cover and introduction by Frank Miller, where he writes about dead eyes and dead voices is very cool I read this book when it first came out Still have it in my library It s a story about telepathy and a serial killer Rudy Pairis is a well educated black man with telepathic abilities and one true friend in the world, a deputy district attorney named Allison Roche Allison, who once had a brief sexual liaison with Rudy, presumes on that relationship to ask him to do the unthinkable She wants him to slip into the mind of the most heinous serial killer she has ever tried to send to the chair, and he s not in the least bit excited about this It s a good fun tale and I really enjoyed it.
Yet another amazing story by Harlan Ellison I must admit that I was initially drawn to the book due to the involvement of Frank Miller, but once Ellison starts to do what he does best, it s all about his extraordinary storytelling ability.
With a cover from renowned artist Frank Miller, one should know that this little book makes a powerful read Told through a man who can jump into the mids of others, this tale of a wrongfully convicted inmate provides two shocking twists before entering its satisfying conclusion A highly recommended read Blah blah Harlan Ellison blah blah If you know what he does and you like it, you ll like this That s about it.
Great story, compelling, mysterious, a brush with evil Must readHarlan Ellison.
