After twenty-nine years as a professor at Temple University, SUNY Buffalo, and U. Mass, Amherst, Samuel R. Delany retired to live with his family and his life-partner Dennis Rickett in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. Born in New York City’s Harlem in 1942, Delany was the first African American writer to achieve note through commercial American science fiction. His SF novels include Nova (1968), Dhalgren (1975), and Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders (2012). Edited by Kenneth James, a volume of his journals will appear in 2016. Omnibus editions of his early SF—A, B, C: Three Short Novels and The Fall of the Towers—are available from Vintage Books, as are his collected science fiction and fantasy tales, Aye, and Gomorrah.

Wesleyan University Press publishes the eleven fantasy tales and novels making up Delany’s Return to Neveryon in four volumes, as well as a collection of three novellas, Atlantis: Three Tales. Dover Books will shortly return to print Delany’s Stonewall Book Award-winning novel Dark Reflections (2007). His non-fiction includes The American Shore, Times Square Red / Times Square Blue, Shorter Views, and About Writing. Books available in e-versions include Open Road Media’s The Mad Man: Or The Mysteries of Manhattan, an autobiography, The Motion of Light in Water, and, from Wesleyan University Press, Phallos.

Samuel R. Delany is the winner of two Hugo Awards, four Nebula Awards, the Pilgrim Award for lifetime contribution to SF and fantasy scholarship, and numerous other honors. In 2013, he was named the 31st Grandmaster of Science Fiction.

The day the last qawwal was killed, my childhood city, already known for its lethal silence, for its censorship of words, for its refusal to listen, went into a deep deep quiet.

You like that every single word, image, and idea in my poetry has meaning and is put there for a reason, so when you ask about the plant in my poem and need to know more about it. . .
