Somewhat lacking the verve and black humor of its predecessor, but still a worthwhile read. The Other had been scheduled for publication shortly after The Glass Teat, but that book gained such a reputation as subversive literature that the original publisher, Ace, begged off. Pyramid finally released the manuscript five years later -- a lifetime in the political history of the nation. (Ironically, The Other returned in a new edition in 1983 -- under the Ace imprint.)
Of particular interest here is Ellison's original script for an episode of "The Young Lawyers" and the author's accompanying discussion of its mutilation at the hands of TV hacks. (For further adventures in the same vein, see the introductions to The Starlost #1: Phoenix Without Ashes, I, Robot: The Illustrated Screenplay and City on the Edge of Forever). Also worthwhile: Ellison's detonation of a beauty pageant for grade-schoolers, and his retelling of the disaster that was his appearance on "The Dating Game."
Both Teats were supposed to have been published in a revised, single volume in the late 1990s as the fifth installment of White Wolf's Edgeworks series, but the project was abandoned. However, in 1997 BiblioBytes did publish both books as The Compleat Glass Teat in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format.
