I keep thinking I need to read way more of Samuel Delaney’s books. Delaney is probably the closest real world person version of Ben Sisko’s 1950s Benny sci-fi writer persona, if Benny was also gay adding to the intersectionism. One of Delaney’s most famous 60s works is even about a space station!
I made the mistake of starting with Dhalgren, which was a tough read for me (it’s a black and gay capital-L Literary sci-fi hallmark). I can visit Dhalgren but I couldn’t live there.
