Phallos

by Samuel R. Delany
Release date: 2004
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, mainstream

A novella.

Phallos is the tale of a tale. Neoptolomus pursues mystic knowledge through the Mediterranean world in the time of Emperor Hadrian. From Egypt to Syracuse, from Athens to Byzantium and further, filled with wit and eruditon – and deeply homoerotic – this is a Lacanian riddle to delight and intrigue fans of Delany's more recent fiction, The Mad Man, and his Return to Neveryon series.
