"I suspect Lucas rather likes Frank Herbert's novel Dune" https://beautone.tumblr.com/post/84823197984/samuel-delany-reviews-the-first-star-wars-movie-in
Delany, the author of this review, is one of the most thoughtful writers I've ever read.
@ajroach42 It is, after all, Chip Delaney, one of the best writers of the '70s-80s. If you haven't read his books, get to it. Dhalgren's the one book to read if you read any, but he never wrote a bad book.
@ajroach42 Oh wow -- I envy you. Delaney is my most favorite SF writer of all time. (Also one of the most underappreciated.)
The three works you've read are from his "earlier" period -- he took a break from writing and came back a _different_ writer. You get to read books like _Dhalgren_, _Triton_, and _Tales from Neveryona_ all for the first time.
