"Beginning with The Jewel-Hinged Jaw (1977) , a collection of critical essays that applied then-nascent literary theory to science fiction studies, he published several books of criticism, interviews and essays. In the memoir Times Square Red, Times Square Blue (1999) , Delany drew on personal experience to examine the relationship between the effort to redevelop Times Square and the public sex lives of working-class men in New York City. He received the Bill Whitehead Award for Lifetime Achievement from Publishing Triangle in 1993. In 2007, his novel Dark Reflections was a winner of the Stonewall Book Award. That same year Delany was the subject of a documentary film, The Polymath, or, The Life and Opinions of Samuel R. Delany, Gentleman, directed by Fred Barney Taylor. The film debuted on April 25 at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. The following year, 2008, it tied for Jury Award for Best Documentary at the International Philadelphia Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Also in 2007, Delany was the April "calendar boy" in the "Legends of the Village" calendar put out by Village Care of New York. " (from Wikipedia)
