Samuel Delaney

So I see he has a new book, called Shoat Rumblin. Wonder what that’s all about. I lost track of him when he seemed to head off into man boy porn. But the books of his youth were always of interest.

I remember reading the Fall of the Towers trilogy (in a single volume)  on summer vacation one year.

Re: Samuel Delaney

I too read an omnibus edition of Fall of the Towers a long, long time ago.  Pretty sure I've still got it here somewhere in the deep stacks.

But my all-time favourite of his books continues to be Empire Star.

And I also remember a fairly intense discussion about Dhalgren occurring in this Association when it was set as a Babbler in this community in June of 2007.  I wonder who else might remember that.?


It's a strange world.  Let's keep it that way.

Re: Samuel Delaney

I remember! And I remember Dhalgren very well also. What a strange book it is.

I remember very well. I think I have some transcripts in my archives...

I started Dahlgren a long time ago (40 years, I believe), got through the first few chapters and said, "No, this is not a book I'm enjoying."
