Eleven side trips to the dark edge of imagination by master storyteller Harlan Ellison, *From the Land of Fear* presents some of the author's early work from his start in the late fifties. Here you can see a vibrant, imaginative young writer honing his craft and sowing the seeds of what would become his brilliant career, including the standout piece "Soldier," a clever antiwar tale included both in short-story form and as a screenplay for TV's *The Outer Limits*. True Ellison fans will enjoy this collection as a chance to see the writer's growth over time. As Roger Zelanzy says in his wonderful Introduction, "He is what he is because of everything he's been up until the Now."
