I recently realized that I had abandoned an earlier structure of the blog, the interlude. I'm returning to that structure by offering a number of conversations with Samuel Delany. The first piece is a conversation in a classroom setting, and the second piece is set in a typical science fiction convention panel setting. I would love to see some material of Delany in a more academic setting, engaged in conversations as a critic, rather than as an author and fan community participant, but I haven't come across that material yet. Still, this is fairly interesting stuff. I might follow up on this in the somewhat distant future.
