I've never read Ellison before, only heard of his works. After listening to the author read his own material, I don't think that I would have gotten nearly as much out of the stories by simply reading them. Harlan has an animated, Shel Silverstein quality to his reading, and it made the stories a thousand times better than having read the printed words. I am so happy to have found this as an introduction to his works and that he was willing to read so much of his own work for this multi-volume set on Audible. The only annoying thing about the entire production was the weird sound effects that often weren't equalized in volume to reading and therefore were often jarring (particularly in I Have No Mouth...) Thoroughly enjoyable!!
