The Jewel-Hinged Jaw. Notes on the Language of Science Fiction
Dragon Press, Elizabethtown, New York 1977 - First edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Delany to Disch. Delany's reflections on science fiction: on critical methods, writing SF, Zelazny, Ursula K. Le Guin's The Dispossessed, Russ, and, notably, Disch (pp. 191-210, and again at pp. 231-238, analysis of the structure of the dream scene in Camp Concentration), here inscribed:"With all love, to Tom Disch 'About every fragment of reality, an infinite number of models can be made!' Samuel R. Delany" and with a few authorial annotations and corrections. "Because of his intellectual audacity, the chillingly distanced mannerism of his narrative art, the austerity of the pleasures he affords, and the fine cruelty of his wit, [Disch] has been perhaps the most respected, least trusted, most envied and least read of all modern first-rank sf writers" (Encyclopedia of Science Fiction).Important association between two prominent American science fiction authors, whose literary criticism has had a profound impact on the genre in ways as utterly divergent as their individual styles. Black cloth. Fine copy, inscribed by the author on the verso of the title page [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
