    That's one of my favorites! Good on you for being able to find a copy. I would also suggest Deathbird Stories and Gentleman Junkie, just to get a flavor for some of his range.

    I am the religious right. Just not the religion most people expect.

    Thank you for the suggestions! I recently read a short story of his (I don't recall the title right off hand), and it got me interested in reading more of his work. I wasn't really sure where to start so I just picked up a few of his books at random at the library. I'll definitely have to keep those titles in mind.

    If you're lucky you'll find something that reflects you,
    helps you feel your life protects you,
    cradles you and connects you to everything.

    The "motherlode," if you can find it, is The Essential Ellison.

    There were two editions ... the 35 year retrospective and the 50 year retrospective. I have the former.
