Delany emphasizes the need for it by repeatedly presenting gaps between people: between individuals, like the "triple" of Calli, Ron, and Molly; between groups, like the planet-bound and the spaceship crews; between "the Invaders" and "the Alliance" in the intergalactic war. (Stone-Blackburn 248) Page 10 The world of Babel-17 is one of "isolated communities, each hardly touching its neighbor, each speaking, as it were, a different language" (B 64). That breach is figured most forcefully in the war itself, which pits not humans against aliens, but humans against humans from another galaxy.
Finally, too, my own final caveat. The body of Delany scholarship is just beginning to congeal. With this anthology I provide a way station from which others can go forward, pitch their own expeditions, discover new continents and map the old. Here you'll find a cross-section of current Delany scholarship, from fairly straightforward readings and appreciations (Carl Malmgren, Mary Kay Bray) to extended, densely argued pieces such as those of Ken James and Kate Spencer. Some of these pieces, like Mark Gawron's on Dhalgren, originated close to publication, while others have the benefit of later work and whatever perspective time affords.
