I NEVER thought I'd EVER run across a Delany fan on this site!

Yeah, he's definitely not a no-brainer!

He teaches English here at Temple U. I've been toying with the idea of trying to set up an interview (freelance, I could sell it to one of my friends who runs literary zines), but for once in my life I am actually intimidated by the thought of him. He's brilliant!
