Nebula award winner Babel-17 for $1.99

Babel-17 by [Delany, Samuel R.]

Heads up, Samuel R. Delany’s Babel-17 is for sale on your Kindle for $1.99. Your purchase helps out Celestial Attic in a small way, and you get a GREAT read. Can a poet save the war effort, or will she see the humanity in her enemies? They say:

At twenty-six, Rydra Wong is the most popular poet in the five settled galaxies. Almost telepathically perceptive, she has written poems that capture the mood of mankind after two decades of savage war. Since the invasion, Earth has endured famine, plague, and cannibalism—but its greatest catastrophe will be Babel-17.

Sabotage threatens to undermine the war effort, and the military calls in Rydra. Random attacks lay waste to warships, weapons factories, and munitions dumps, and all are tied together by strings of sound, broadcast over the radio before and after each accident. In that gibberish Rydra recognizes a coherent message, with all of the beauty, persuasive power, and order that only language possesses. To save humanity, she will master this strange tongue. But the more she learns, the more she is tempted to join the other side . . .

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Samuel R. Delany including rare images from his early career.
