" I have no mouth, and I must scream"

We lost power yet again where I live in lower Uzbekistan, VA the other day. Just for 2 minutes, while They replaced hamsters in the wheel of The Grid, or whatever They did; enough to put The Machine at home into so far permanent "Power Saver mode". So I am stealing 2 minutes of machine time @ work to let you know this, and that The Shebeen will back Real Soon Now, as they say in IT support.

The title above is a Harlan Ellison short story, one of 12 'most reprinted in the English language', according to an online source. Oh? And what are the other 11? Why 12?

Gotta go; 'til then, regards.

Ellison rocks. Still working my way through his documentry (Dreams with sharp teeth), though (netflix streaming to the rescue!).

Thank you for the comments, Mike.
Yes he do rock: his first 2Dangerous Visions anthologies, acquired in pb, still hold center position on RR's sf shelves, well thumbed and yellowing like their owner.
Little guy sure could write (and edit), tho I have not followed his late career.
Loves me some Netflix: I will add the doc. to the queue,thank you.
