This is supposed to be the defining speculative fiction anthology of the 'New Wave' era 60s/70s. 35 stories, never before published. Each author was told to write a story that is a dangerous vision or concept; through a mirror darkly, etc. There are some really excellent stories here, and a few decent ones. There are also some that are terribly trite and not at all dangerous or visionary. Then again, it's hard to read these within the context of the world in which they were written, 1967. A few [...]

6.0 stars. This is one case in whichTHE HYPE DON'T LIE and the HUGENORMOUS helpings of hallelujahs heaped on Harlan (Ellison) have hardly been hyperbole. Sorry about that, but it was fun to write. Seriously though, this book's Andre the Giant-sized reputation of amazing had me thinking there was no way for me to end up anywhere but disappointmentville. UhI was WRONG. This anthology is every bit as delicious as its press would have you believe.It's fair to say that this collection has reached “ [...]

The best sf anthology ever. And I mean ever!so it's been 45 years since this book was first published. i don't remember whether i read this when it came out in 1967 or whether it was a few years later. it doesn't really matter, all i know is the book had a massive impact on me and got me seriously interested in sf. in any event, it was a long time ago when i was just a teenagerter i read this book, i read sf almost exclusively for quite a long timeybe 15 years or so. then i gradually strayed awa [...]

This daring, ground-breaking, iconoclastic anthology, edited by the great Harlan Ellison, came out in 1967. He encouraged the contributors to push the boundaries, expand the envelope, think the unthinkable and mention sex, religion, politics, sex, sex, and things like that. You know, the kind of stuff you wouldn't normally find in a short story that had passed John W. Campbell's desk on its way to a million pimply teenage SF fans. (Disclaimer: I was one of those fans, even though I wasn't quite [...]

I bought this collection of 33 science fiction stories because it was recommended in A Reader's Guide to Science Fiction on its "5 Parsec Shelf" of the best books in the genre. Here's what it said about the book: Anthologies, no matter how excellent, have seldom had enough impact to be "classics." But the first Dangerous Visions, edited by Ellison, was not only a wonderful sampling of the writers working in the exciting late '60s, it revolutionized science fiction in the matter of attacking more [...]

The all time "most controversial" science fiction collection from ye olde Summer of Love 1967 - will this stand the test of time? It doesn't help that Harlan Ellison is wizard in this particular Oz, I can't really stand him, he's like a yappy guy in a bar claiming to have done ten frankly impossible things and daring you to call him a liar.

This was a book I started reading about a decade ago, at a time when I was interested in possibly developing a college-level course in science fiction. When that project fell through, I didn't have enough interest in this particular anthology to finish reading it; I was distinctly underwhelmed with most of the selections I did read (and with several more that I just skimmed or read partially). In keeping with some of the comments I exchanged recently with my friend Joy, though, I've decided that [...]

Three stars is a gift.Typical 70s drivel: pro-drug, pro-sex, pro-anarchy, anti-establishment, anti-Christian, anti-military. Not science fiction so much as speculative fiction. It all seemed so new and relevant then; now it seems like cold spit.If you do read it, skip the introductions to each story. It's mostly Ellison sucking up to his buddies. DO READ the authors' afterwords. Several of them are insightful.

Some of these stories might still be considered dangerous today in religious circles--but then what isn't? I'd have been happy if they were simply interesting.There are stories in here of such rambling incoherency that I'm thankful I missed the sixties. Some are reactionary, some are silly. Larry Niven is afraid that if organ transplants become common practice, people will be given the death penalty for minor, petty crimes in order to augment resources. Sturgeon's story takes thirty pages to get [...]

Harlan Ellison is one of the best SF short story writers around. He's also a very good editor & seems to know everyone in the field. Here he's collected the best of the best. He introduces every story quickly, concisely & often humorously. He's also included an afterword for each story by the author. I don't know that I've ever seen that before. It really works & between them, I got a lot more out of each story.

More like Desperate Visions From the Editor's Buddies, But Mostly Deluded Vainglory from the Editor Himself, Though a Few Stories are Pretty Good, Especially Toward the End. And Three Women.Reading Chris Priest's account of the never-to-be-seen Last Dangerous Visions is most satisfying after slogging through Ellison's introductory spew.

While there are amazing stories within (Philip Jose Farmer's was my favourite- makes me want to say something corny about Joyce and acid. Then something meta-cutesy about Joyce being Joyce on acid), the real joy is found in the intros and outros. Especially the outros, because a lot of these stories are pretty incomprehensible, and it's cool at the end to have the author say 'I was thinking about ABC so I had to write this story' and you're like 'Ohhhh You shoulda just said that!'[If you're wond [...]

This is Ellison’s self-proclaimed revolution in SF, comprising 30-odd original stories by the big names, and big-names-to-be, in the field. The 35th anniversary edition (2002) begins with five written pieces of front matter—a fair sign of the importance attached to this volume, at least by Ellison. The first is a brief, useful if a bit overly congratulatory foreword by Michael Moorcock. The last is Ellison’s original introduction, which is a breezy, entertaining read. It is certainly far s [...]

This book changed the entire direction of science fiction. As you probably know, Ellison wrote to all of his favorite authors, asking them to submit a short story or novella that previously they had not been able to publish (for various reasons . . political as well as erotic) He edited this book and "Again, Dangerous Visions" . The entire speculative fiction genre changed utterly. This is one important and magnificent book.

3.5 out 5This is a great anthology, there are some really amazing stories in here. but sadly, most of them haven't aged well at all. Some of the stories are very experimental, that makes them kind of difficult to read sometimes, at least for me. I got lost several times. Highlights: -Evensong-The Man Who Went to the Moon — Twice-Lord Randy, My Son-Faith of Our Fathers-Land of the Great Horses-Judas

Definitely required reading for those seeking to understand or at least sample the zeitgeist of the late 60's New Wave SF movement. Reading this as a teen in the 80's was a bit unfortunate. Wish I could have read it at the height of its time, when these stories really were Dangerous Visions.

There are some books out there whose reputations often exceed the content of the book itself. Many people, even those who don’t read SF, have heard of Frank Herbert’s Dune, for example, or Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001 (that’s the novel, not the film.)In SF circles, Dangerous Visions is one of those that many know of by reputation but these days have rarely read. It was the Gone with the Wind of SF anthologies when it was first published in 1967. Like the film Gone with the Wind before its rel [...]

Read this in anticipation of the new biography of Ellison coming soon, and I'm glad I did because now I don't have to buy an early limited edition of it. I was reading sf in 1967, but not this stuff. Speculative perhaps. Dangerous maybe. But the misogynistic, racist, patriarchal, elitist babble was too much all in one book. As near as I can make out, what we could anticipate in 1967 for the near and far future is comeuppance. You like violence? Here's what'll happen if that continues. Revenge fa [...]

This book was decidedly one of hot and cold. there are stories in it that have remained with me over the entire thirty some years since I first read it. They run the gamut from self destructive anthropologists to strange visions of what we may breed ourselves into in some Science Fiction future. I will say that I like some and found some quite disturbing. of course some were just "there" and passed almost without notice. I don't remember the anthology as extremely outstanding and let it pass fro [...]

“Dangerous Visions” is a semi-legendary compilation of science fiction stories, originally published in 1967, most of them written by legendary science fiction authors. The compilation features both the stories themselves, and for each an introduction and postscript by Harlan Ellison (himself legendary). There is also a longer set of introductions, forwards, etc at the beginning of the book, including new ones written in 2002 to celebrate the thirty-fifth anniversary of this tedious, silly b [...]

I've been meaning to start writing reviews of books that I've read, mainly to help organize my thoughts, process and better understand what I've read. That, and I feel my ability to properly write has gone down the drain since I've been out of school for awhile. I'll try to keep at writing a review a week if my reading goes as I expect and, maybe, I'll begin to see progress in the quality of my writing the further along I go.Starting my reviews with an anthology, and one so highly regarded as Da [...]

Ellison's watershed anthology was strong stuff when first published in 1967, and it still packs a wallop. Lots of amazing stories in here, and in the 1972 sequel, AGAIN, DANGEROUS VISIONS (which includes a couple of short novels).It is a great pity that we will probably never see the long-promised THE LAST DANGEROUS VISIONS. As one of the few privileged to read Volume 1 of this massive assemblage, I can confidently say that if Ellison hadn't had writer's block on doing the introductions, this wo [...]

This is Harlan Ellison's ground-breaking 60s SF anthology for which he invited writers to explore "dangerous" themes that were generally considered taboo at that time. Even now, many of these tales still retain the capacity to shock. Like most anthologies, the quality of the content is uneven, but the overall result is elevated by Ellison's story introductions, the afterwords to each story by the writers themselves, and the general sense that one is reading a serious attempt to push the genre in [...]

No kidding dangerous. This isn't a collection of short-stories for the faint of heart. It literally is dangerous stories. These are stories that no one wanted to publish, whether because of their horrifying, graphic, or theological statements. As such, it is remarkably fascinatiing.The stories are imaginative to a degree that I've not seen often. The stories are evil. These are stories you hate to love and do anyway. They are naughty and terrible and well-written. It is precisely because they ar [...]

This collection was quite an eye-opener at the time of publication in 1967 and impressed me two years later when I borrowed a copy from a friend soon after matriculating at Grinnell College. Other than the fact that Ellison was able to obtain original work from luminaries in the field, his emphatic instruction was that they were to submit without fear of censorship. In other words, he encouraged his writers to push the limits and, by the standards of the time, many of them did. I was particularl [...]

THE CLASSIC anthology of sf stories that stretch the boundaries of the genre. More experimental and thought-provoking than most of the SF that is published today.

Suggestion: Read the stories first, (immediately followed by the afterwords), then when you've gone through the whole book, if you're still interested, then read the interminable introductions.Overall: About 30 minutes into this book, you get to the first introduction to the first story. Mind you, the introduction to that story is longer than the story itself, but I guess that's the kind of book this is. Did I mention that there are also afterwords after each story? At one point, there's also an [...]

Rarely in any artistic medium does a multi-author anthology (or equivalent) become a classic in itself rather than a kaleidoscope of reflected glories. Such is the case though for Dangerous Visions. Reading it half a century on, some of the ideas still seem 'dangerous' while others are merely quaint. Nevertheless, it was assuredly the kick in the pants which speculative fiction needed to break past its fear of taboos and to free it to pursue challenging ideas (a.k.a. dangerous visions) the way t [...]

Maybe not dangerous anymore so much as mostly interesting. Ellison's introductions are sometimes more entertaining than the stories themselves, which range from great to meh, gimmicky, and edgy by 1960s standards. The book is worth reading if you're into this kind of thing and the first edition is beautiful. My favorite was the Philip K. Dick.

Overall this book is, I think, really worth 3 1/2 stars. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and make it 4. By far its biggest frustration is the role Harlan Ellison plays in proceedings. His forewords are generally self-serving, always overstay their welcome, and sometimes completely spoil the story which follows. (The most egregious example of this is "A Toy for Juliette" - a story which would have a really nice little twist at the end were it not for the fact that Harlan gives it away in th [...]
