White Wolf Publishing presents, for the first time in unlimited edition trade paperback, the unrevised, unadulterated version of Harlan Ellison's award-winning Star Trek script, The City on the Edge of Forever - the spark that incited Ellison's vehement and long-lived feud with late TV producer Gene Roddenberry! The City on the Edge of Forever is, at its most basic, a poignant love story. Ellison takes the reader on a breathtaking trip through space and time, from the future, all the way back to 1930s America. In this harrowing journey, Kirk and Spock race to apprehend a renegade criminal and restore the order of the universe. It is here that Kirk faces his ultimate dilemma: a choice between the universe - or his one true love. White Wolf's Borealis Legends imprint makes available this astonishing teleplay as Ellison intended it to be aired. The author's introductory essay (expanded by 15,000 words from the limited edition) reveals all of the details of what Ellison describes as a "fatally inept treatment" of his creative work. Was he unjustly edited, unjustly accused, and unjustly treated?
For the first time ever, a visual presentation of the much-discussed, unrevised, unadulterated version of Harlan Ellison's award-winning Star Trek teleplay script, ''The City on the Edge of Forever!'' See the story as Mr. Ellison originally intended!
The award-winning original teleplay that produced the most beloved episode of the classic Star Trek series—with an introductory essay by the author. USS Enterprise Starfleet officers Capt. James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock escort a renegade criminal to a nearby planet for capital punishment, and they discover the remains of a city. This ancient civilization is inhabited by the alien Guardians of Forever, who are tasked with protecting a time machine. When the criminal escapes through the portal into the past, he alters Earth’s timeline, damaging humanity’s future role among the stars. Pursuing their prisoner, Kirk and Spock are transported to 1930s Depression-era New York City—where they meet pacifist Edith Koestler, a woman whose fate is entwined with the aftermath of the most devastating war in human history. A woman whom Kirk has grown to love—and has to sacrifice to restore order to the universe. In its original form, The City on the Edge of Forever won the Writers Guild of America Award for best teleplay. As aired, it won the Hugo Award. But as Harlan Ellison recounts in his expanded introductory essay, “Perils of the ‘City,’” the televised episode was a rewrite of his creative vision perpetrated by Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and the show’s producers. In his trademark visceral, no-holds-barred style, the legendary author broke a thirty-year silence to set the record straight about the mythologized controversy surrounding the celebrated episode, revealing what occurred behind-the-scenes during the production. Presented here as Ellison originally intended it to be filmed, this published teleplay of The City on the Edge of Forever remains a masterpiece of speculative fiction, and a prime example of his uncanny ability to present humanity with all its virtues and faults.
"Includes a new introduction and afterword by Harlan Ellison"--Page 4 of cover.
Weißt du, was Liebe ist? Vic tut alles, um in seiner postapokalyptischen, nuklear verseuchten Welt zu überleben. Ihm zur Seite steht sein treuer Gefährte Blood, ein telepathisch begabter Hund. Als sie auf eine junge Frau namens Quilla June treffen, verliebt Vic sich in sie und folgt ihr in die Unterwelt, dem letzten Refugium der Zivilisation. Hunde sind dort jedoch nicht erlaubt ... Die Kurzgeschichte „Ein Junge und sein Hund“ erscheint als exklusives E-Book Only bei Heyne und ist zusammen mit weiteren Stories von Harlan Ellison auch in dem Sammelband „Ich muss schreien und habe keinen Mund“ enthalten. Sie umfasst ca. 60 Buchseiten.
Ich denke, also bin ich! Der Weltuntergang liegt bereits über einhundert Jahre zurück, ausgelöst durch einen verheerenden Weltkrieg von intelligenten Supercomputern. Die Überlebenden haben sich in einen unterirdischen Komplex geflüchtet, doch sie sind nun von einem solchen Computer abhängig. Dieser hat die Menschen unsterblich gemacht – um sie einer ewigen Folter zu unterziehen ... Harlan Ellison beweist mit seinen Stories, wie schonungslos spekulative Literatur die großen Fragen der Menschheit aufzudecken vermag.
