Those weird coincidences....

I was leafing through this next book I'm going to read, Science Fiction Culture, and in the section on GLBT fans & creators, there's this bit about Samuel Delany, a writer a lot of people have mentioned to me. Apparently when he came out, all the shops stopped selling his stuff, his advanced disappeared and, *what really grabbed my notice* he had to get a job as and English professor at UMass Amherst, my alma mater. Apparently while he's no longer there and was only there like a year (a couple years before my time), he had at one time been with the Comparitive Lit department, which I'm pretty sure was in the same building as the journalism department where I stuck myself.
