"Samuel R. Delany is not only one of the most profound and courageous writers at work today; he is a writer of seemingly limitless range."
––Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of THE HOURS
"A deeply affecting chronicle of a lifelong partnership, Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders is by turns generous, unsparing and bursting with life (and sex) in all its difficult, rousing, prismatic splendor. A truly staggering achievement, this moving novel underscores why Delany remains essential reading and why American letters would be the poorer without him."
—Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
In 2007, days before his seventeenth birthday, Eric Jeffers meets nineteen-year-old Morgan Haskell, as well as half-a-dozen other gay men who live and work in Diamond Harbor. The boys become a couple, and for the next twenty years, labor as garbage men along the coast, sharing their lives and their lovers, learning to negotiate a committed open relationship. For a decade, they manage a rural movie theater that shows pornographic films and encourages gay activity among the audience. Finally, they become handymen for a burgeoning lesbian art colony on nearby Gilead Island, as the world moves twenty years, forty years, sixty years into a future that is fascinating, glorious, and—sometimes—terrifying.
Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders is a near-future science fiction novel.
"Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders is . . . one of the best novels by anyone that I have read in quite a long time. Indeed, I would go so far as to say (as I already put it on Twitter) that it is the best English-language novel that I know of, of the 21st century so far ."
—Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University
“An imposing and immersive novel that disturbs, gratifies, and enlightens. This is a monumental contribution to Afrofuturist, speculative, and queer literature. Another masterpiece from one of our very best and most important writers.”
—Lonely Christopher, author of Death and Disaster Series

'Delany's works have become essential to the history of science fiction' New Yorker
Samuel Delany is one of the most radical and influential science fiction writers of our age, who reinvented the genre with his fearless explorations of race, class and gender. Driftglass is the definitive volume of his stories, featuring neutered space travellers, telepathy, Hells Angels and genetically modified amphibious workers.
'Delany's books interweave science fiction with histories of race, sexuality and control. In so doing, he gives readers fiction that reflects and explores the social truths of our world' The New York Times
Triton, the outermost moon of Neptune, is a world of absolute freedom. A world where every wish can be fulfilled. But for Bron Helstrom, one of society's elite, life has lost its meaning.
In a world of endless possibilities, Bron begins an odyssey to find the object of his elusive desire. An odyssey that will take him to earth, involve him in political intrigue and transform him completely from the man he once was.
The only survivor plucked from a world where life has been burned out from horizon to horizon, Rat Korga is a very unusual human. On his own world he was subjected to Radical Anxiety Termination-a synapse-jamming technique banned on many planets.
Now the officials of the Web must find a new world for him. Their first choice is the planet Velm: a world on which humans co-exist uneasily with the trisauian evelmi - and also the world of Marq Dyeth, for whom Korga is calculated to be the perfect erotic object, to about seven decimal places . . .

“Delany’s prismatic output is among the most significant, immense and innovative in American letters.”—Jordy Rosenberg, New York Times
"He dispenses wisdom about craft—including the demanding revision process his dyslexia requires—but most moving are the moments when he sheds light on connections he has made with other readers and writers. . . . Delany’s fans are in for a treat."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
Language is the way humans deal with past, present, and future possibilities, as well as the subset called the probable. This is where Samuel Delany finds his justification for the writing life.
Since the 1960s, occurrences such as Sputnik, school desegregation, and the advent of AIDS have given Delany, as a gay man, as a black man, access to certain truths and facts he could write about, and the language—sometimes fiction, sometimes nonfiction—in which to present them. “We write,” Delany believes, “at the intersection of your experience and mine in a way, I hope, that allows recognition.&rdquo
