"The Gamble" and Other Essays

More essays and interviews from one of literature's iconic voices

Samuel R. Delany is an acclaimed writer of literary theory, queer literature, and fiction. His works have fundamentally altered the terrain of science fiction (SF) through their formally consummate and materially grounded explorations of difference. This anthology of essays, talks, and interviews addresses topics such as sex and sexuality, race, power, literature and genre, as well as Herman Melville, John Ashbery, Willa Cather, Junot Diaz, and others. The second of two volumes, this book gathers more than twenty-five pieces on films, poetry, and science fiction. This diverse collection displays the power of a towering literary intelligence. It is a rich trove of essays, as well as a map to the mind of one of the great writers of our time.

About the Author

SAMUEL R. DELANY (Philadelphia, PA) has won four Nebula awards and two Hugo awards. He is the author of more than 40 books, including Dhalgren and Times Square Red / Times Square Blue.
