Summary

Summary

The Deadly Streets Raw, vital, uncompromisinghere are portraits of the lost, the damned, the helpless, trying to get a handle on life. A startling collection of hip stories by an impressive young writer, torn from the shadows of the twilight world. Muggers, slashers, street gangs, lurkers in the shadows: no need to read Lovecraft to be thoroughly terrified. Just read these 16 violent tales or take a walk in the park tonight. No Doors, No Windows You have nothing to fear but fear itself. The only trouble is, fear comes in so many different shapes and sizes these daysthe rejection by a beautiful woman, the threat of impending nuclear holocaust, the erratic behavior of wackos walking the streets who only need a wrong word and there they go to the top of an apartment building with a sniperscoped rifle. Fear is all around you, and the minute you get all the rational fears taken care of, all battened down and secure, here comes something new. Like the special fears generated in these 16 incredible stories. Fear described as it has never been described before, by the startling imagination of Harlan Ellison, master fantasist, tour guide through the land of dreadful visions, unerring observer of human folly and supernatural diabolism.
