Review:

The New York Times Book Review"

The Foreword"

Fantasy Review"

Stars in My Pocket has been one of my favorite books and, in particular, the book that, more decisively than any other, has defined for me just what science fiction is capable of and why it is worth bothering about. Carl Freedman, The Foreword"

A densely textured, intricately worked out novelistic structure which delights and astonishes even as it forces a confrontation with a wide range of thought-provoking issues. Stars in My Pocket like Grains of Sand . . . confirms that [Delany] is American SF s most consistently brilliant and inventive writer. Steve McCaffery, Fantasy Review"

"Sentence by sentence, phrase by phrase, Delany invites the reader to collaborate in the process of creation. The reader who accepts this invitation has an extraordinarily satisfying experience in store."--Gerald Jonas, The New York Times Book Review
