Come and enter Samuel Delany’s tomorow, in this trilogy of high adventure, with acrobats and urchins, criminals and courtiers, fishermen and factory-workers, madmen and mind-readers, dwarves and ducheses, giants and geniuses, merchants and mathematicians, soldiers and scholars, pirates and poets, and a gallery of aliens who fly, crawl, burrow, or swim.

"Webs within webs, circles within circles, [Delany's] imagination...creates a mirror of the oceanic density of our times, and leaves you asking for more."-- The Village Voice "A grand job...these tales of Samuel Delany's have a fine, rich strangeness.... Beautifully intricate and gloriously mystifying, all this intricate tapestry of advanced science and decayed society the author has portrayed marvelously well." --P. Schuyler Miller, Analog Magazine

"A writer of consistently high ambition and achievement...Delany's fiction demands--and rewards--the kind of close reading that one ungrudgingly brings to the serious novelists....Sentence, phrase by phrase, [he] invites the reader to collaborate in the process of creation. The reader who accepts this invitation has an extraordinarily satisfying experience in store for him/her." --Gerald Jonas, The New York Times Book Review

"Delany has a fearsomely stocked intellect, and a wider range of experience than most writers can even imagine.... He is brilliant, driven, prolific." --The Nation
