a book, "The Last Dangerous Visions", was announced by Harlan Ellison. As recently as 2007 Harlan said he still wants to get the book out. A narrative of this Worst Odyssey Ever was written by Christopher Priest. You can read it at Archive.Org here. It is all so disheartening.
There is little hope that Mr. Ellison will finish the book or experience the 50th anniversary of this process. If there is anything you can do about this, please give it a try.

Why not write to Mr Ellison direct and ask him how he's getting along with things?

This was Public Television's first made-for-television movie costing $250,000. The film was out-of-print for decades and was changed slightly when it was brought back. This original version of With A Little Help From My Friends from the original film might just be the very first mash-up.
