Strange WineFrom Harlan Ellison, whom the Washington Post regards as a “lyric poet, satirist, explorer of odd psychological corners, and purveyor of pure horror and black comedy,” comes Strange Wine. Discover among these tales the spirits of executed Nazi war criminals who walk Manhattan streets; the damned soul of a murderess escaped from hell; gremlins writing the fantasies of a gone-dry writer; and the exquisite Dr. D’arque Angel, who deals her patients doses of death. But even more so, discover the clarity of voice and courage of conviction of an author who feels passionately, who thinks deeply, and who writes like a locomotive barreling through a tornado.
