Delany's 1967 novel won the Nebula Award for Best Science Fiction Book. The plot follows a race of aliens, the Lo Lobey, who colonize Earth after humankind's departure and try to make sense of our existence (good luck!). This edition has a new foreword by Neil Gaiman of Sandman comic fame.

"When Delany describes to us what he has seen, what he can compute, adduce, intuit or smell in the underbrush, our reaction is to sit bolt upright and cry out, 'Of course, I have that very wound myself!' The ability to produce this reaction in people is one of the commonly accepted and apparently valid appurtenances of genius . . . I look forward to the explosion reading this will create within you." ―A. J. Budrys, Galaxy MagazineSee all Editorial Reviews

This is the type of book that defies a simple explanation. I would go as far to say that I am going to have to take time to digest what I just read.Published 19 months ago by Kindle Customer
