Praise

“Webs within webs, circles within circles, [Delany’s] imagination…creates a mirror of the oceanic density of our times, and leaves you asking for more.”— The Village Voice

“A grand job…these tales of Samuel Delany’s have a fine, rich strangeness…. Beautifully intricate and gloriously mystifying, all this intricate tapestry of advanced science and decayed society the author has portrayed marvelously well.” –P. Schuyler Miller, Analog Magazine

“A writer of consistently high ambition and achievement…Delany’s fiction demands—and rewards—the kind of close reading that one ungrudgingly brings to the serious novelists….Sentence, phrase by phrase, [he] invites the reader to collaborate in the process of creation. The reader who accepts this invitation has an extraordinarily satisfying experience in store for him/her.” –Gerald Jonas, The New York Times Book Review

“Delany has a fearsomely stocked intellect, and a wider range of experience than most writers can even imagine…. He is brilliant, driven, prolific.” —The Nation
