it was amazing
I own a copy

I came across the first book in the Return to Neveryon series (Tales of Neveryon) at random in a small bookstore in Stratford-upon-Avon in England. It looked interesting, so I bought it and read it on the flight back to the States. This novel sparked a love affair with the writings of Samuel R. Delany - both fiction and non-fiction, across multiple genres - that continues to this day.

One of the best reasons to read the series, though, are the appendices in each book in which he shows us the inspiration behind his creative process, his fascination with writing and its history, and his staggering intellect. Absolutely fascinating!
