Anthologies seldom make history, but Dangerous Visions is a grand exception. Harlan Ellison's 1967 collection of science fiction stories set an almost impossibly high standard, as more than a half dozen of its stories won major awards - not surprising with a contributors list that reads like a who's who of 20th-century SF: Evensong by Lester del Rey ~ Flies by Robert Silverberg ~ The Day After the Day the Martians Came by Frederik Pohl ~ Riders of the Purple Wage by Philip José Farmer ~ The Malley System by Miriam Allen deFord ~ A Toy for Juliette by Robert Bloch ~ The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World by Harlan Ellison ~ The Night That All Time Broke Out by Brian W. Aldiss ~ The Man Who Went to the Moon - Twice by Howard Rodman ~ Faith of Our Fathers by Philip K.

The single most important science fiction anthology ever published. ( )
  Dannelke | Jun 23, 2023 |
An extremely influential anthology in 1967 that doesn't age particularly well. Harlan Ellison took on the epic task of collecting 35 never-before-published stories that were too "dangerous" for any other publisher to publish, and then brought them together with two forwards by Isaac Asimov, and a very extensive introduction by Ellison. Just in case you didn't get enough of our editor, he also gives us a gushing, clubby, and Ellison-focused introduction for every story in the volume. Finally, each story includes an afterward by the author. That is a lot of writing about the writing, and the nearly 600 page behemoth would probably be a little more approachable if we could have stuck to the stories. The stories themselves are written by some very recognizable names in mid-20th century sci-fi, but are a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the "Dangerous Visions" feel very mild in 2022. Others are stories that probably never needed to be told (do we really need so much incest?). Philip José Farmer's "Riders of the Purple Wage" almost made me give up on the whole enterprise (that it was very long and Ellison's favorite story in the collection didn't inspire confidence). The whole thing was worth it, though, for introducing me to "Sex and/or Mr. Morrison" by Carol Emshwiller, and J.G. Ballard's "The Recognition" was pretty amazing as well. An important book and an interesting time capsule for that mid-60s stylistic shift in sci-fi, but maybe just skim the Ellison parts. ( )

When I was a kid (decades ago) my dad got me a library discard of "Again, Dangerous Visions". I remember reading it and really liking it. I had been a Golden Era science fiction kid and devoured all those short stories from Asimov, Clarke, et al, eventually Heinlein, and so on. I can't say this book opened me up or anything, I don't remember anything about it, but the fact that I actually READ the book. I also had a book of Ellison's TV columns from an LA paper (if I recall) called "The Other Glass Teat" - I really liked those columns, but again I was a kid. Ironic that both of those were second collections but I had never read the first collection of either.

Anyway, Ellison dies and I think oh yeah I never read this definitive collection that changed sci-fi, supposedly. So I bought this.

Well, time *has* passed. For one thing, books with tiny type like this old edition are not particularly inviting even with bifocals. For another, perhaps our tolerance of or interest in "crazy" fiction has changed. Certainly my has. Outlandish and boundary-pushing for the sake of being boundary-pushing is not that engaging.

I did not like this book. I skipped many of the stories; if I couldn't tell what was happening, I gave up and moved on. I mean, if I did persist then the payoff was usually pretty slight, so that didn't encourage me to keep going on the tough ones.

Some people seem to really hate this collection, and others seem to love it, so your mileage may vary. It was mostly a reminder to me that some things have changed for me over the decades! ( )

I don't know the state that sci-fi was in when this book was published but from a 2020 perspective is extremely dated, most of the stories were predictable, a lot of the times the twist was shocking I imagine at the time but now a protag being gay is not even worth a mmmm, only 3 or so stories still hold their weight and the other 90% of the book is boring.

A classic collection for a reason! This is the SF anthology by which all other SF anthologies measure themselves. ( )
