Brain Movies: The Original Teleplays of Harlan Ellison® Volume 7 (2018 Edgeworks Abbey Trade Paperback; 2nd edition) – BLOOD’S BARGAINS

$39.99 $19.99

BLOOD’S BARGAINs  are books that have sustained cosmetic damage but are still readable. From badly aligned spines and miscut covers to serious bumps, bruises, and scuffs, think of these as books Blood salvaged from the post-apocalyptic wastes in an effort to civilize Vic.

Two of Harlan Ellison’s most compelling unfulfilled dreams will, at long last, finally find their audience when you open this book to discover 1968’s Esper—the story of a broadcast news journalist whose emerging telepathy changes his professional perspective forever—and 1975’s The Tigers Are Loose—which finds a penal psychiatrist attempting to understand and treat the monsters in our midst.

Description

Esper
In 1968, Harlan Ellison wrote a detailed treatment for a tv movie intended to spawn a series. Readers of Stephen King’s 1979 novel THE DEAD ZONE might wonder if Harlan Ellison could see the future…

The Tigers Are Loose
Inspired by the practice of the psychiatrist who treated mass murderer Richard Speck after his capture, this teleplay for an unproduced 1975 movie-of-the-week highlights Harlan Ellison’s ability to deliver a suspenseful thriller despite the unwillingness of NBC’s censors to allow violence on the network’s air.
