Product description

From Amazon

Samuel R. Delany wrote that this is "considered by many...to be the greatest single SF novel." It tells the story of Gully Foyle, a below-average, nondescript spacehand whose life at 30 is "too easy for trouble, too slow for fun, too empty for friendship and too lazy for love." Then Gully is marooned in space for 170 days, trapped in the equipment locker of a shattered spaceship. When a passing vessel investigates the wreckage and, unthinkably, leaves Gully to die, his life takes on new meaning, setting off a search for vengeance that will alter the world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

He died in 1987. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
