      Hope you're all having a great holiday season, and perhaps we can have some
      late-year Delany discussions...

      *We are pleased to announce the reissue of this classic work of
      criticism by Samuel R. Delany, Starboard Wine: More Notes on the Language
      of Science Fiction**
      *
      [image: Delany - Starboard R-72-3.jpg]

      In *Starboard Wine*, Samuel Delany explores the implications of his
      now-famous assertion that science fiction is not about the future. Rather,
      it uses the future as a means of talking about the present and its
      potentiality. By recognizing a text�s specific �difference,� we begin to
      see the quality of its particulars. Through riveting analyses of works by
      Joanna Russ, Robert Heinlein, Theodore Sturgeon, and Thomas M. Disch,
      Delany reveals critical strategies for reading that move beyond overwrought
      theorizing and formulaic thinking. Throughout, the author performs the
      kinds of careful inquiry and urgent speculation that he calls others to
      engage in.

        Wish the various Vintage editions--Dhalgren, Nova, etc.--would come as eBooks!
