I am reading Babel-17 by Samuel R. Delany.

So far nothing interesting is happening. I hope, however, that it develops into a magnificent story.

Delany is setting the stage for a story that seems to be about language and how we decipher it when encountered with an alien species we know nothing about.

I find discussions around the nature of language fascinating. I can’t wait to report back about this Nebula Award winning work for Best SF Novel of the Year (1966).
