[SF] Nova

by Samuel R. Delaney

Dense, poetic, and took 2 attempts to finish. But it’s a vision of the future that hasn’t let go of me. Sailing spaceships that travel faster than light, mining at the heart of a sun, the economic fate of the universe determined by a fight between 2 eccentric playboys and a gypsy. Well worth it if you can get through the at-first seemingly unmotivated 90 page flashback halfway through the book.
