- Oh man, Nova's a favorite, probably THE favorite. It is sentimental, my mother gave it to me in my teens.... But I did like it a lot. I reread it a couple of years ago and did a (second in my life ) painting based on the book. Von Lorq has a little Delany in him based on photos. I guess I'll have to go reread it again. I've just been going through a Delany reading obsession. In the last 6 months I've reread
They Fly at Ciron, Fall of the Towers, Empire Star, Neveryona, The Einsien Intersection and lots of dipping into The Motion of Light on Water. Now I'll probably read Nova again soon... I do an occasional collum on my site about what I've been reading so I think I'll do a Delany one. I need to do a couple touch ups on the painting, then I'll put it up - Jeff ( who mostly lurks )
