I’ve never read any of Delany’s works… but I’m young, I have time.
Personal favorite authors: William Gibson - Cory Doctorow - Bruce Sterling - Samuel R. Delany - Neal Stephenson
Seriously half of my book collection alone consists of work by them.
Well if you’re familiar with or enjoy any of the above writers I would definitely check out Delany’s Nova. It was a pretty big influence on Gibson’s Neuromancer and is often considered to be a forerunner to the cyberpunk genre as it features humans interfacing with computer/tech devices. Honestly it’s just a great fucking book; to put it bluntly. Hopefully you’ll check it out and it’ll be your gateway drug into the wonderful world of Delany.
We would get along we’ll. Very well.
