#97 "Over The Edge stories from somewhere else" is very interesting collection of HE stories. Even more interesting, that the paperback (wasn't that what George Orwell wanted paperbacks?) has a "Foreword: The Frontiers of Edgeville" by Norman Spinrad and an "Introduction: Brinkmanship" by the author written by the author 8 October 1969 in Los Angeles. Then the story "Pennies, Off a Dead Man's Eyes" begins without even a blank page! It does give a great introduction to Mr. Ellison, the "who" who's wrote the stories and an entertaining way of beginning or perhaps ending what we may read. I recall in high school others then arguing for science fiction as literature that should be included in curriculum, after all that's where protest comes from, troubles in curriculum.
