Samuel R. Delany is widely considered to be one of the greatest science fiction writers of the twentieth century, and a pioneer of black and queer genre fiction. ‘Driftglass’, the definitive collection of Delany’s science fiction stories, displays the extraordinary depth of his writing: strange men and women labouring beneath the seas, the struggle of those attempting to break free from their galaxies, the intrigue of violent underworlds, as well as children with psychic powers and an ice cream parlour on a moon of Neptune.

Description

‘Delany’s works have become essential to the history of science fiction’ New Yorker

Samuel Delany is one of the most radical and influential science fiction writers of our age, who reinvented the genre with his fearless explorations of race, class and gender. Driftglass is the definitive volume of his stories, featuring neutered space travellers, telepathy, Hells Angels and genetically modified amphibious workers.

‘Delany’s books interweave science fiction with histories of race, sexuality and control. In so doing, he gives readers fiction that reflects and explores the social truths of our world’ The New York Times
