Detailed view for the Book: Dangerous Visions (Anthology)

Blurb: 
This book was conceived out of a need for new horizons, new directions, new styles in the literature of our time. All the stories are presented here for the first time and many deal with subjects which are considered taboo in the popular magazines. This is a revolutionary book.

You will find new young writers like Samuel Delany side-by-side with established craftsmen such as Howard Rodman, with veterans in the field such as Miriam Allen deFord and Theodore Sturgeon. You will find traditionalists like Poul Anderson chockablock with wildly experimental writers such as Philip Jose Farmer and others whose works are avant guarde, demanding and unusual - Sonya Dorman, Carol Emshwiller, J.G. Ballard and John Brunner.

Controversial, different, and in many ways dangerous stories. Ideas of men used to dealing with the future and the mind of man. The visions of these men. Their best . . . their DANGEROUS VISIONS.
