With over 1,700 published works, the 10-time Hugo Award Winner Harlan Ellison brings a slice of the bygone New York 1950s and takes us inside a Brooklyn street gang.  Harlan Ellison’s first novel “Web of the City” was published 30 years ago and will hit the bookstores and online stores again thanks to Titan Books re-publishing it.

The story of Rusty Santoro takes place in 1950s Brooklyn neighborhood.  The 17-year old high schooler with a long rap sheet has been running with The Cougars, and now he wants out!  He wants something more in life than the violence, drugs and broken relationships.  At every corner and turn, something draws Rusty back into the gang world.  Will he ever escape this endless cycle of nothingness?  Will he make the right decisions?  This is Rusty’s story, the ex-leader of The Cougars.
