This is the definitive edition of Harlan Ellison's first novel, returning to bookstores for the first time in 30 years. It is a harrowing story of gang violence on the streets of New York - partly inspired by Ellison's own real-life experiences going undercover as a gang member in the 1950s. Also features three thematically related stories the author published in pulp crime magazines in the 1950s.

About the Author

Industry Reviews
"It's hard to fathom that one of the most illustrious speculative-fiction writing careers--in addition to ten Hugos, Ellison has won so many other awards that even he probably can't remember half of them--launched with this gangbanger tale in 1958. Ellison based the action on his own experiences in a Brooklyn gang. Along with Web, the volume includes three related gang stories--"No Game for Children," "Stand Still and Die," and "No Way Out." More fodder for the argument that Ellison may have pioneered what we now call street lit. Classic cover art on this one, too. - Library Journal

"Take a look at Web of the City, you will be glad you did." - Crimezine

"Hard Case has done an amazing job repackaging Web of the City with three additional tales of violence and dread." - Bibliodiscoteque

"It's a great read itself and even more fascinating when looked upon in the context of Ellison's hugely influential career." - Ain't It Cool Holiday Gift Guide
