Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The sequel-anthology to Harlan Ellison's groundbreaking 1967 anthology Dangerous Visions. Due to the size of it, it has been released in two volumes (although originally in one).

Like DV, it also features introductions to each story by Harlan, who talks about the writer, and an afterward by the writer about the story.

The planned sequel to ADV would have been The Last Dangerous Visions, but...well, Harlan doesn't like to talk about it.
