Rosarium Publishing is pleased and proud to announce the Table of Contents for “Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R. Delany,” forthcoming in July 2015.
This book will honor science fiction’s living legend, the author of over 20 novels, approximately as many short stories, five notable memoirs and counting, and ten essential books of genre criticism. SFWA Grand Master, Science Fiction Hall of Fame inductee, and multiple award-winner Samuel R. Delany (“Chip” to his friends) has inspired and taught many of us, directly and indirectly, by example and by intent.
