Summary (IBList user synopsis):

In 1965 Harlan Ellison introduced an unsuspecting world to The Harlequin, a non-conformist (and perpetually late) rebel in a future society where conformity and punctuality are the gods of a totalitarian world. Taking time to stop and smell the roses, The Harlequin becomes a disruptive diversion to an otherwise well-ordered, suppressed populace. And that's something their leader, The Ticktockman, can't allow. Honored with the Nebula Award for Best Short Story, "Repent, Harlequin!" Said the Ticktockman has become one of the most reprinted stories in the English language, with the numerous foreign translations.

Originally published in Galaxy, December 1965.

The cover displayed is from the oversized (9"x13"), illustrated 30th anniversary edition illustrated by Rick Berry.
