Stories For Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R. Delany edited by Nisi Shawl and Bill Campbell
Trade Paperback – Rosarium – Aug 2015 – 380 pages
Stories for Chip brings together outstanding authors inspired by a brilliant writer and critic, Science Fiction Writers of America Grandmaster Samuel R. “Chip” Delany. Award-winning SF luminaries such as Michael Swanwick, Nalo Hopkinson, and Eileen Gunn contribute original fiction and creative nonfiction. From surrealistic visions of bucolic road trips to erotic transgressions to mind-expanding analyses of Delany’s influence on the genre—as an out gay man, an African American, and possessor of a startlingly acute intellect—this book conveys the scope of the subject’s sometimes troubling, always rewarding genius. Editors Nisi Shawl and Bill Campbell have given Delany and the world at large, a gorgeous, haunting, illuminating, and deeply satisfying gift of a book. Also includes work by Roz Clarke, Kathryn Cramer, Junot Diaz, Thomas M. Disch, Ellen Kushner, Kit Reed, Kim Stanley Robinson, Kai Ashante Wilson and many others.
