Very strange. It's not his greatest work, perhaps but Delany nonetheless is able to effectively subvert the fantasy genre for his own diabolical purposes. I'm really not sure what else to say--ya just gotta read it. I imagine some people will really loathe and despise it, and I have to admit, at times his various musings can become overly intrusive, but overall a read that I would characterize as "intriguing." Oh, and by the way, not that anyone cares, but the September 30 '99 review of Dhalgren is mine--I've no idea why I wrote it anonymously.
