About the author

Samuel R. Delany was born in New York City on April 1, 1942. He grew up in New York's Harlem district and attended the Bronx High School of Science. At City College he served as poetry editor of the magazine Prometheus. He composed his first novel at nineteen and, at intervals between novels, worked in jobs ranging from shrimpboat worker to folk singer – in places as diverse as the Texas Gulf, Greece and Istanbul. Samuel Delany has won the coveted Nebula Award four times, twice for short stories ('Aye, and Gomorrah' and 'Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones') and twice for novels (Babel-17 and The Einstein Intersection). His other works include The Fall of the Towers, The Jewels of Aptor, Nova, Dhalgren and Triton. In addition, he and his wife, the poet Marilyn Hacker, founded and edited the avant-garde science fiction journal Quark from their base in London, where they presently live with their daughter.

V1.1 ocr cleanup/formatting I've interjected an extra
when scenes shift Within the same chapter (not consistant)

[?] means I'm not sure about something in the immediate

General: Taafite or Tanfite ? – **Taafite** – His friend's house. 'Hell_' or 'Hell_' ?


–Added two missing pages – beginning and end are marked with [*]

–When referring to any of the 'Hells', Delany uses superscript, i.e.; to the third power. But I did not know how to make this symbol so that it would survive the transition to text.

–'Ty_', the female character, has a nordic[?] symbol (two dots) above the second Y in her name. I also did not know how to generate this character.

Delany also used a fair amount of italics, which are not here, as well.
