About the Author

After his seventh novel Empire Star (1966), Samuel Delany began publishing short fiction professionally with "The Star Pit." It appeared in Worlds of Tomorrow and was turned into a popular two-hour radio play, broadcast annually over WBAI-FM for more than a decade. Two tales, "Aye, and Gomorrah" and "Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-precious Stones," won Nebula Awards as best SF short stories of, respectively, 1967 and 1969. Aye, and Gomorrah contains all the significant short science fiction and fantasy Delany published between 1965 and 1988, excepting only those tales in his Return to Neveryon series. A native New Yorker, Delany teaches English and Creative Writing at Temple University in Philadelphia. In July of 2002 he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.

Reviews

"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 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.
