      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"

        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.
