From the introduction, “Thirty-Two Soothsayers” by Harlan Ellison:

What you hold in your hands is more than a book. If we are lucky, it is a revolution.

This book, all one hundred and sixty-five thousand words of it, the largest anthology of speculative fiction ever published of all original stories, and easily one of the largest of any kind, was constructed along specific lines of revolution. It was intended to shake things up. It was conceived out of a need for new horizons, new forms, new styles, new challenges in the literature of our times. If it was done properly, it will provide those new horizons and styles and forms and challenges. If not, it is still one helluva good book full of entertaining stories.
