    Samuel R. Delany is one of the most celebrated writers of speculative fiction and is also a noted author of scripts, a director, and the editor of two short films. His novel Babel-17 (Vintage, 2002) won the Science Fiction Writers of America Award in 1966 and he has also won four Nebula Awards and one Hugo Award. His other books include The Bridge of Lost Desire (Arbor House, 1987), Dhalgren (University Press of New England, 1996), Atlantis: Three Tales (Wesleyan University Press, 1995), The Star Pits (Tor Books, 1989), and Equinox (Masquerade, 1994). He currently teaches Queer Studies at Temple University.
    First written thirty-five years ago and completed days before the Stonewall riots in New York, Hogg is one of America's most famous " unpublishable" novels. It recounts three horrifically violent days in 1969 in the life of truck driver and rapist-for-hire, Franklin Hargus. Narrated by his young accomplice, the novel portrays a descent into unimaginable depravity. What transforms this nightmare into literature is Delany's refusal, faced with our moral anxieties, to mutilate his appalling creation. Hogg's monsters wear our faces, possessing the human complexities of intense loyalty perverse admiration, and an integrity so pure that pity becomes betrayal.
