D-413 Man With 9 Lives / Touch of Infinity GOOD
The Man With Nine Lives
by Harlan Ellison
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
Another ultra-collectors' item. Ellison may be the most overrated writer in any category today, but this novel and these stories from his youth demonstrate that, in another reality, he might have been one of the great ones.
Emory's showdown with the space mogul Lederman began and ended with a fight to the finish on the small asteroid Brutus; but in between, Emory spent fifteen years and more lives than any man ever had a right to.
Because, in his effort to bring his antagonist, the man who had stolen his woman and wrecked his life, to that lonely, airless field of honor, Emory had to make a terrible pact with Manuvac -- the machine that guided human destinies a million years ahead. It was a pact that was to take him in many shapes to many worlds on missions of alien peril and incredible adventure.
Emory was indeed The Man With Nine Lives, and this is a novel to be rated among the best. Great stuff!
