    One thought on “Partners in Wonder”

    1. This is a collection of short stories that Ellison wrote over a quarter-century span in collaboration with other writers, many of them the stars of the field at the time. Though they're not what I would consider the very best of his work there are some very good ones, and it's fascinating to see the way his style blends with others. There are some very funny ones, such as the Laumer (to which both authors contributed an ending), the Rotsler (King Kong Kartoons!), and the Sheckley (which has the [...]

    2. Books by Harlan Ellison are a trip. You never know if it's a trip through Wonderland or a trip through the darkest regions of human nature, but it's a trip. Partners in Wonder (1971) takes the unpredictable Ellison and teams him up with some of the biggest names in science fiction at the time--including Robert Silverberg, Roger Zelazny, Theodore Sturgeon, Robert Sheckley, Ben Bova and more to produce an even more out-of-this-world trip than usual.It was interesting to see how Ellison's style wou [...]

    3. It's a collection of collaborative stories that Harlan Ellison did with a whole swathe of sf authors (unfortunately all men, by his own admission), from Golden Age godfathers like A. E. Van Vogt to fellow alleged "New Wave"-ers like Samuel Delany. The quality varies and some of the stories just aren't sf (these are collaborations first, not bound to any particular genre).Of particular note and worth are the collaborations with Sheckley, Bova, Bloch, Sturgeon, and Van Vogt. The ones less worthy a [...]

    4. A good collection of stories by Ellison in collaboration with other leading writers of the day. I enjoyed it, and even Ellison’s preface to each story was interesting. Some funny, some weird, some more space travel themed, but only one of the stories was a sort of clunker story. A good find. My favorite stories were:The Song the Zombie SangThe Prowler in the City at the Edge of the WorldHuman OperatorsRecommended.

    5. A book of what happens when writers get together for fun and profit. Includes the collaboration with Robert Sheckley, "I See a Man Sitting in a Chair, and the Chair is Biting his Leg," an early example of gonzo spec fic, and one of my all-time favorites. Harlan's introductions provide a tantalizing look inot the writing life that made me want to become a writer.

    6. This collection includes fourteen collaborations between Harlan Ellison and the biggest names in science fiction, both old school (Ben Bova, Robert Bloch) and New Wave (Silverberg, Zelazny, etc.) Partners in Wonder should have been a can’t-miss book. In 1971, Harlan Ellison was at the height of his popularity. He had published 20 books including a collection of groundbreaking pop culture essays (The Glass Teat) and the hugely influential award-winning Dangerous Visions anthology. How could suc [...]

    7. As an avid admirer of Harlan Ellison, I was excited to find a cache of his books in fine to excellent condition at a used bookstore late last year. It was a rare and wonderful discovery, as I hardly ever find Harlan’s backlist in such a quantity in any single location.Partners in Wonder was one of the books I found that day. It is an anthology of collaborative stories between Harlan and some of the most famous SF and speculative fiction writers of that Golden Age such as Ben Bova, Robert Silve [...]

    8. I would consider this story collection to be but a set of historical artifacts, or perhaps an exercise in nostalgia. The science fiction owes Harlan Ellison a great debt, as he really was influential in changing the shape of the genre. However, reading these stories (primarily from the 60s or earlier) emphasizes just how much sf has evolved--ironically, in the wake of Ellison's influence.Several of these collaborations with other giants of the genre are--as Ellison himself more-or-less admits--h [...]

    9. What could be better than Harlan Ellison writing his sometimes dark, sometimes funny but always engaging work? Only Harlan Ellison working with other authors, equally gifted but perhaps with different takes on the world, society and fiction. Instead of nullifying each other's thoughts, the result is a fantastic synergy which takes you on a wild ride from cover to cover. The story introductions by themselves could have been published as a standalone work as they give an insight to Ellison's work, [...]

    10. Not prime Ellison, or prime work by his collaborators either, and sometimes the introductions are more memorable than the stories. Yet even at their most larkish, the stories generally work, and Ellison's love and respect for his fellow writers is almost palpable. A curiosity, but very readable.

    11. Some awesome pairings here with Ellison working with the greats/masters of the SF genre. Most effective are the stories where he marries his sensibilities to authors more known for "Hard SF". You get he perfect blend of emotional connection to big concepts. Probably influenced Grant Morrison.

    12. As is often the case with short story collections, some were very good, some were good, and some were so/so. As is often the case with a Harlan Ellison collection, half the fun is in his commentaries about the stories.

    13. There are some great stories in this book. The one which really stood out for me is: "The Song The Zombie Sang." "Brillo" was also a great read. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes speculative fiction, and especially to anyone who--like me--reads Harlan Ellison obsessively.

    14. I've got my eyes on Harlan Ellison's and Theodore Sturgeon's "Runesmith" of 1970 and I've got to say that it was ok.

    15. Decent collection of science fiction stories written by Harlan Ellison in collaboration with fourteen prominent colleagues.
