Synopsis: The contents of 1984 are easy enough to describe: 57 letters and documents written in the mid-80s by novelist and critic Samuel R. Delany. Addressed to various friends, relatives, and colleagues, they present a vivid and exuberant mid-career portrait of a writer and thinker whose work has had an enormous influence across a startling range of literary and paraliterary genres, including science fiction, autobiography, pornography, historical fiction, comic books, literary criticism, queer theory, and more. All the trademark Delany touches can be found here rich descriptions of urban life, incisive social observation, sensuous and sophisticated tales of a life lived on the intersections of multiple social margins (Delany is gay and black), and, especially, passionate meditations on the intersection of aesthetics, politics, and philosophy that have made Delany a figure of paramount importance both for millions of readers, and, more specifically, for a collection of writers and thinkers a mere partial list of which reads like a Whos Who of contemporary intellectual culture: Fredric Jameson, Eve Sedgwick, Um-berto Eco (a key secondary character in the pages to follow), Donna Haraway, Henry Louis Gates, Charles Johnson, William Gibson, and, we learn here most intriguingly but perhaps least surprisingly Thomas Pynchon. -- from the introduction, by Kenneth R. James

From the Publisher: Voyant Publishing will donate a portion of the sales of 1984 to the Robert Drake Health Fund. Robert Drake a 37-year-old author, literary agent, and prominent figure of the Philadelphia gay community, was the victim of a life-threatening, hate-motivated assault at his home in Sligo, Ireland on January 30, 1999. Since that time, Robert Drake has battled many severe complications resulting from this vicious attack. In October of 1999, he was discharged to a Philadelphia apartment he shares with his lover, Ciaran Slevin. The pair are receiving support from a core group of volunteers and the local Quaker community in their efforts to generate the personnel and finances required to fund Robert Drakes lengthy, ongoing recovery. Robert Drake is a close friend of the publisher and was an instrumental figure in the launch of Voyant Publishing. For more information about the fund, contact Robert Drake Health Fund, c/o Arch St. Meeting, 320 Arch St., Philadelphia, PA 19106
