Publisher's Blurb
The balance of galactic power in the 31st century revolves around one thing – Illyrion, the most precious energy source in the universe. The motley and exotic crew who sign on with Captain Lorq Von Ray know that their mission is dangerous; and they quickly learn that Von Ray is engaged in a deadly race with the charismatic but vicious leader of an opposing space federation. But they could never have guessed the true nature of Lorq’s obsession – to gather Illyrion at its source by flying through the very heart of an imploding star.

Nova is space-opera at its most ingenious and colourful. Samuel R. Delany has created a complex and exhilarating universe, teeming with fantastic characters, sights, sounds and smells – a breathtaking achievement of the imagination.

Born in Harlem in 1942, SAMUEL R. DELANY emerged on the science fiction scene in the 1960s. He was barely 25 when he finished Nova, though it was his eighth book. His previous work includes two much-praised books – Babel-17 and The Einstein Intersection (both Nebula Award winners) and subsequent books include the best-selling Dhalgren.
