I've only read this one, it was good, but I hope it's not Ellison's best. Saw "Angry candy" mentioned here a couple of times, but he has some 20+ collections - has no one read any besides these two?
Have read them all, can confirm their goodness.
Also, can anyone point me to a good Ligotti collection? Teatro Grottesco wasn't impressive.
anything by Ray Bradbury, Martian Chronicles is a short one
The Complete Short Stories by Edgar Allan Poe
