Harlan Ellison The beast that shouted love at the heart of the world
I am trying to buy this book for a Christmas present and want to get a first edition. I have no idea what im doing it appears it was mass printed by Avon in 1969 and then it was printed again in 1969 as a hard back for book clubs. The first UK printing was by Millington in 1976. Has anyone got any ideas which one would be most saught after by collectors and why?
Thanks for your help

The true first of this was an Avon pb, which if memory serves are hard to identify. There was a hb, but it was SFBC with Avon's mark on it, and it's not a true first. The first UK dropped a few stories and was not first in time.
I think there is an author's corrected text of this collection out there (pretty sure the Avon had been changed against Ellison's wishes). Ellison has several fan sites; you should look at those for assistance in determining which edition is the most desirable, or at least which would be best for the purposes of your gift.
