Table of Contents: STORIES FOR CHIP: A TRIBUTE TO SAMUEL R. DELANY Edited by Nisi Shawl and Bill Campbell

Here’s the description and table of contents for the upcoming tribute anthology Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R. Delany edited by Nisi Shawl and Bill Campbell. Delany is an SFWA Grand Master, Science Fiction Hall of Fame inductee, and multiple award-winner Samuel R. Delany

Stories for Chip brings together outstanding authors inspired by a brilliant writer and critic, Science Fiction Writers of America Grandmaster Samuel R. “Chip” Delany. Award-winning SF luminaries such as Michael Swanwick, Nalo Hopkinson, and Eileen Gunn contribute original fiction and creative nonfiction. From surrealistic visions of bucolic road trips to erotic transgressions to mind-expanding analyses of Delany’s influence on the genre—as an out gay man, an African American, and possessor of a startlingly acute intellect—this book conveys the scope of the subject’s sometimes troubling, always rewarding genius. Editors Nisi Shawl and Bill Campbell have given Delany and the world at large, a gorgeous, haunting, illuminating, and deeply satisfying gift of a book.

    What a terrific karass with enticing titles!

    Very excited…

  2. Yay! Thank you for the glowing write-up. Eileen’s story is actually a reprint–but most of the contents are original, and I’m so happy with what we’re doing, and so (more importantly) is Chip! Next steps, revisions and crowdfunding.
