Summary
A masterwork of myth and terror, DEATHBIRD STORIES collects nineteen of Harlan Ellison's best stories written over the course of a decade. In it, ancient gods fade as modern society creates new deities to worship--gods of technology, drugs, gambling. Revolutionary when first published, the short stories contained here have won multiple honors including the prestigious Hugo and British Science Fiction Awards. They have inspired a generation readers and other authors to reexamine blind faith and fight against crumbling institutions. Stark and often angry, this collection strips away convention and hypocrisy and lays bare the human condition. After all, the gods we invent contain all too much of their inventors
