Harlan Ellison is an amazingly prolific writer in both the science fiction and the mystery and suspense genres. This volume is in Fine condition and it is signed by Mr. Ellison directly on the title page. Spider Kiss is a tough-minded suspense novel about the early days of rock'n'roll and this novel has endured. It was originally published in paperback in 1961 and since then the novel has become something of a cult icon. The story has been flippantly called a 'Horatio Alger from Hell' tale where the 'poor boy from the country makes good in the city' story is reversed and coated with the pervasive corruption of the music industry. The point seems to be that Talent can corrupt and absolute talent can corrupt absolutely. A Fine signed edition. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
