Gerry Canavan

University Press of Mississippi

Gerry Canavan, in “Far Beyond the Star Pit: Samuel R. Delany,” approaches the “Far Beyond the Stars” episode of DS9 as a frame for analyzing Delany’s own experiences in science fiction by focusing most directly on Delany’s early novella “The Star Pit” as an allegory for life under segregation. Drawing from Delany’s other SF and autobiographical writing, Canavan deconstructs the way the experience and imagination of race manifests in Delany’s lifelong exploration of systemized racism during a lauded career.
