Product Description


"Yevgeny Zamyatin? Stanislaw Lem? Forget it! Delany is both, with a lot of Borges and Bruno Schultz thrown in." — Village Voice

"Samuel R. Delany never shies away from contestable positions or provocative opinions. In his fiction, Delany can write like quicksilver, and in lectures or panel discussions, he is easily SF's most articulate spokesperson in academia . . . There is much here that is not covered in Delany's critical or autiobiographical writings, and much that anyone seriously interested in SF -- or many of Delany's other favorite topics -- ought to consider."— Locus

"Delany is fascinating whether discussing SF, comics, or his experiences as a Black American, and this collection . . . is as entertaining as it is informative."— Science Fiction Chronicle

"This is a suberb and important book for anyone interested in Delany, SF, or SF criticism . . . engaging, well put together, fun to read, and challenging. As usual, with anything written by Delany, the texts all operate at many levels: personal, historical, critical, theoretical, and metatheoretical."— Extrapolation --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


"Delany has a unique place in late 20th century letters. A lifelong inhabitant of the margins, both social and literary, he has used his marginalized status as a lens to focus his astute observations of American literature and society. From these interviews his voice emerges, provocative, precise, and engaging." (Kathleen Spencer) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Essays... Dec 15 2013
By HR - Published on
Format: Paperback
In some ways, this and his other collections of essays and literary critique are his best writing... it feels like having a stiff drink, just by reading....
But oh I wish for more Neveryon or beta 2..... or more depictions of life as honest as the Heavenly Breakfast.
