Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of SandeBook - 2014
In a universe where information flows freely, lack of knowledge can be cataclysmic With a burst of radiation to the brain, an angry young man is transformed into a dim-witted slave—suitable only for the most brutal work. But the tragedy of Rat Korga is the prologue to the story of Marq Dyeth, an “industrial diplomat,” who travels from world to world in this exciting, sprawling future, solving problems that come with the spread of “General Information.” The greatest fear in this future is Cultural Fugue, a critical mass of shared knowledge that can destroy life over the surface of an entire world in hours. In this dizzyingly original novel, information is perilous, but without it a human is only a rat in a cage. This is the book in which, a decade before the fact in 1984, Delany predicted the Internet. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Samuel R. Delany including rare images from his early career.
