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.

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.
