Book Description

14 Oct 1994 Literature; 20
Samuel R. Delany, whose theoretically sophisticated science fiction and fantasy has won him a broad audience among academics and fans of postmodernist fiction, offers insights into and explorations of his own experience as writer, critic, theorist, and gay black man in his new collection of written interviews, a form he describes as a type of ""guided essay."" Gathered from sources as diverse as Diacritics and Comics Journal, these interviews reveal the broad range of his thought and interests.

Product Description

Review

"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

Delany was an excellent writer (he hasn't written much fiction recently) and is a brilliant scholar. You can read this book if you are interested in his fiction (and graphic novels) but also if you are interested in comics, science-fiction, sexuality, gender, whatever. Chip Delany has a lot to say on all these topics and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essays... 15 Dec 2013
By HR - Published on Amazon.com
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.
