Edward Bryant and Harlan Ellison

ISBN 0 86130 003 3
|Novelist and speculation writer Ed Bryant's adaptation of Harlan
Ellison's award-winning pilot script for NBC's '70s SF Television series The Starlost. Harlan was insistent: we had to buy this if we wanted The Glass Teat. The broadcast TV series owed little to Ellison, who removed his
name. The series was a spectacular flop, and Ellison explains
why in his 12-page afterword to Bryant's novel. First published
by Fawcett (1975) and based on the original pilot, Phoenix Without Ashes shows what could have been (and, actually, we're glad we bought
it!). Another title which deserves its special Savoy 'Laser-light'
Tayfoil jacket treatment.
A few copies of this title are still available.
