In the words of Harlan Ellison:

“I have just received my first two (only 2, so don’t ask me for one) copies of LI’L HARLAN AND HIS SIDEKICK CARL THE COMET IN DANGER LAND, a swell 20-something page chapbook from Edgeworks Abbey in association with the magnificent Subterranean Press, illustrated extra-swell by the magnificent Gahan Wilson. It is one of my very best almost-unbelievable anecdotes of me, Li’l Harlan, with the iconic, famous, magnificent Carl Sagan of Cosmos, in the early ’80s.”
