The Georgia Review is proud to announce that our Summer 2022 issue will begin our serial publication of This Short Day of Frost and Sun, a new novel by Samuel R. Delany. The novel begins on New York’s Upper West Side sometime in the early 1990s, and, in an embedded tale, moves to a millionaire’s estate somewhere in the Midwest, a residence called “Mapless.”
Samuel R. Delany is one of the most esteemed, prolific, and daring writers who writes across myriad genres and engages myriad concerns. His interests in science fiction, autobiography, literary criticism, and social commentary promiscuously intermingle with each other, as do his lifelong concerns about race, sexuality, class, writing, and literary inheritance. He has been awarded four Nebula Awards and two Hugo Awards for his science fiction, and has been inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame. He has also won the Anisfield-Wolf Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes a career outstanding in its “contributions to our understanding of racism and our appreciation of the rich diversity of human cultures,” as well as the Bill Whitehead Award for Lifetime Achievement, which honors recipients’ “lifetime of work and their commitment to fostering queer culture.” His numerous books include Dhalgren, Atlantis: Three Tales, and Times Square Red, Times Square Blue.
