      At dawn I held hands with the other passengers, we all huddled together
      under that brilliant flash, although I hate them.

      Oh God, I miss my music."

        Wow. A Google search just led me back into the archives of the Delany
        list from nine years ago, when Ralph Dumain was here stirring things
        up and there was active critical discussion of Delany's work in
        detail. Kind of nice to know all that stuff is still floating out
        there for those who want to discover it.

          I'm still here, but I haven't read anything by Delany in some years,
          sadly, and I've been otherwise preoccupied. However, I do think about
          simplex-complex-multiplex.

          Small world dept.: I was going over some of my old web pages, and I
          found a surprising Delany reference:

          "Leslie Fiedler and Me"
          <http://autodidactproject.org/other/mfried/fiedler.html> by Emanuel Fried

          Manny gave me this piece in 2003, but I overlooked the note saying it
          was going to be published in . . .

          /Fifties Fictions
          <http://www.amazon.com/Fifties-Fictions-Samuel-R-Delany/dp/1929512120/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1308658579&sr=1-1>/
          by Samuel R. Delany and Josh Lukin

          I've never seen this book, so I don't know if this happened, but I
          assume it did.

          See also:

          Introduction to Para-Doxa, No. 18:
          "Under Gray Flannel: Introduction to Fifties Fictions"
          Josh Lukin
          http://paradoxa.com/excerpts/18intro.htm

          Manny was a radical labor organizer who was blacklisted in the '50s and
          took to playwrighting. Production & promulgation of his plays were
          thwarted by the same people who opposed him as a union organizer.
          Manny's proletarian drama was unique in American theater. It would not
          have occurred to me to link him to Delany, but here we are.
