Vale QAF

I love tv shows that make you feel PROUD. I think that's what people call art.

Obtuse Confusion

Yes, I know I have been slack in updating this blog, please forgive me. I've just finished reading Samuel R. Delany's Time Considered As A Helix of Semi-Precious Stones. I bought his Distant Stars anthology even tho it was 27 bux, which is a lot for me to spend on a paperback, but I decided to unclench my sphincter and buy it.

It's a pleasant enough read, but I confess I don't get it. This is, like, an an award winning story, and one of his important works apparently. I'm not particularly dense, but if someone could please explain the significance of the story or point me to a good analysis I would be most grateful.
