Umberto Eco considers him a “fascinating writer . . . who has invented a new style.” Galaxy Magazine considers him “the best science fiction writer in the world.” The Nation calls him “brilliant, driven, prolific” and says that he “has a fearsomely stocked intellect, and a wider range of experience than most writers can even imagine.”

The Marygrove College English and Modern Languages Department proudly announces that Samuel R. Delany will be the twentieth visiting author in its Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series. The second author of science fiction to participate in the series — the first was the late Octavia Butler in 1994 — the tireless Delany has written nearly fifty book-length works: novels, short stories, essays, memoirs, and literary criticism. He will deliver the Lillian and Donald Bauder Lecture on Friday, April 11, 2008 at 8 p.m. in the Madame Cadillac Building’s Alumnae Hall.
