Ivanova reading the book

Working Without a Net was the title of Harlan Ellison's memoirs.

Susan Ivanova was reading this book in 2258. [1]


  • JMS said the following about the book in response to a question on Usenet: "The book is Harlan's autobiography, which he plans to write around the year 2000, and yes, that's his photo. (He borrowed the prop when we were finished and casually carried it with him to a few places, just to make people nuts thinking there was a book out they'd missed....)"[2]
  • Thus far, Harlan Ellison has not published an autobiography under this title or any other. In 2008, Ellison announced that he had signed with a major publisher to write his memoirs under the title Working Without a Net but the book has yet to be published.
