Web of the City

Titan Books, 2013 M04 5 - 288 páginas
The definitive edition of Harlan Ellison's first novel, returning to bookstores for the first time in 30 years. Rusty Santoro used to run the local street gang. Now he wants out. But the other gang members aren't interested in letting him go quietly, and it's Rusty's family that may pay the price... 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. This edition also features three thematically related stories that the author published in pulp crime magazines in the 1950s.
