Editorial Reviews

Budrys
When Delany describes what he has seen, what he can compute, adduce, intuit or smell in the underbrush, our reaction is to sit bolt upright and cry out, 'Of course, I have that very wound myself!' The ability to produce this reaction in people is one of the commonly accepted and apparently valid appurtenances of genius. . . .I look forward to the explosion reading this will create within you.
