THE JUVIES - HARLAN ELLISON

Life and Death of the Gutter Kids


ACE D-513
FIRST PRINTING 1961
NEW YORK, USA

KICK WHEN HE'S DOWN!
AIM FOR THE GROIN!
STOMP OR BE STOMPED!

These are the rules for survival in a kid gang. These are the rules that I lived by when I ran with a gang myself, trying to find out what makes a JD tick. And let me tell you these kids aren't playing games. These are junior-grade killers!

I've pulled no punches in THE JUVIES either. I've painted these kids as they really are, in sharp black and white (and very often in blood red). Stark and stinking, and intended to scare the hell out of you.
