Babel-17 (Nebula Award winner)., Delany,  Samuel R.
1 Delany, Samuel R.Babel-17 (Nebula Award winner). 42428
Millenium: London. 1999.
Second printing.
Trade paperback original.
SF novel, first published in 1966 and winner of the Nebula Award for best novel.

''he published two more novels in 1966: Empire Star (1966 dos; text corrected 1977) and BABEL-17 (1966; rev 1969). Both, especially the latter, which won a Nebula, reveal a notable advance in sophistication. Babel-17, whose chapters carry epigraphs from the work of the poet Marilyn Hacker - Delany's wife from 1961 to 1980 - is about language, and has a poet heroine. In a future galactic society, radio broadcasts in an apparently Alien language are received; they are thought to be connected with sabotage and alien invasion. Much of the novel is to do with cracking the language. Delany espouses here the Whorfian hypothesis that our perception of reality is partly formed by our languages; the invention of different societies in this novel, more intense and imaginative than his previous work, is mostly rendered in terms of thought- and speech-patterns'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition)..
