It's pathetic, I know. Samuel R. Delany was, at one time, in my pantheon of 3 favorite SF writers: the other 2 being J. G. Ballard & Philip K. Dick. &, yeah, he's still in that pantheon except that it's expanded to include the Strugatsky Brothers, Stanislav Lem, & 'James Tiptree' (Alice B. Sheldon). &, yet, I've listed a slew of bks by him that I've read & I don't remember a single thing about them. Hence, no reviews. My excuse, as usual, is that I read this stuff at least 20 yrs ago, At least I can remember my girlfriends from back then. "Nova" is probably the 1st of his bks where I felt like he was "in his stride", where his no-doubt-substantial life experience was beginning to manifest itself in a greater richness of characters & social detail than previously - his earlier novels having been precocious but maybe just a little bit too much of-the-genre & a little-too-little original.
