    1. From the interview with Adam Roberts, 2003, pp117-118:We love a sentence not so much for what it means so much as the manner and intensity with which it makes its meaning vivid.People for whom the trick tends not to work are people who are just learning the language and/or have no literary background in any other language before they startThe vividness comes pretty much from a kind of surprise, the surprise from meeting a series of words that, one by one, at first seem to have nothing to do with [...]

    2. i cannot get enough of SRD. this book is worth it just for the cover. delany has an awesome, almost brutally advanced style of interview - they are all done by mail, and his responses often run to 5k or 10k words, as deep and intricate as any of his published essays. half the time he ends with the interviewer's implicit assumptions (about the roles of literature and paraliterature, politics and sexuality, etc etc etc) lying in tatters on the floor

    3. Really interesting look at racial politics, sexual politics, and the science fiction genre from one of the most entertaining and innovative authors writing today. I don't always agree with what he has to say, but it's always worth reading.
