Ask yourignorant friend the Bear to tell you tales of Aptor; and blind, wisepoet, you will laugh, and probably he will, too. But I will tell you:his tales, his legends, and his fantasies are not a tithe of the truth,not a tithe. Perhaps you will be no help after all.

The Jewels of Aptor Paperback – April 1, 2014. by. Samuel R. Delany (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. I think I was originally attracted to it because the title sounded THE JEWELS OF OPAR, one of the Tarzan novels. The Jewels of Aptor are something like the nine rings of power from The Lord of the Rings, but since this was written before those books made it to America, the idea probably wasn’t lifted.

Delany's first novel, from 1962, serves as a sort of prologue to the subsequent Captives of the Flame, 1963. Set several centuries after the Great Fire - a nuclear holocaust - a young woman seeks her destiny with the help of a four-armed youth. Summary by BellonaTimes).

Published in a period of BEM (bug eyed monsters) written primarily for adolescent boys and cheaply printed, this stood out for its consistency and narrative style. Certainly not close to his later work, Dahlgren and a few other things, Delaney shows promise here that did become realized later. If already a fan, worth the time to read, and if unacquainted, one might question. But those double books introduced me to many writers whose ideas found later and wider, fuller expression in larger, better books that brought science fiction into the mainstream of literature. After this book, seek out Dahlgren and Nova and enjoy.

Delaney wrote some great stories and a lot of carp. Like the emperor's new clothes, people called a lot of his carp monumental. But, as the emperor probably left a lot of gorgeous fashion on the floor of his changing room, so too did critics seem to miss gorgeously dyed silks like this one. It has not lost any of its luster and is as fresh today as it was when first written.

Nice book reminds me for some reason of the Tarzan book Jewels of Opal or Opals of X. Kinda the same life embracing narrative and feel

Ariurin
Interesting. But a fun read none the less.

Vosho
some twists, overall good read

Kazijora
good but not great

Hra
Overly religious and trite. This guy became great. It is easy to see the seeds of that in this book. Still worth a read as it fills in more of this author's creative process.

I read this decade ago when I was about fourteen. It was the first Samuel R. Delaney novel that I read, and it was the first one he wrote, when he was still a teenager, in fact. I think I was originally attracted to it because the title sounded THE JEWELS OF OPAR, one of the Tarzan novels. The Jewels of Aptor are something like the nine rings of power from The Lord of the Rings, but since this was written before those books made it to America, the idea probably wasn’t lifted. Though this is science fantasy rather than science fiction (which is true of the bulk of so-called science fiction), Delaney presents am interesting philosophical perspective which gives the reader an interesting new way to view things and puts it far above mere escapism. It’s amazing that it’s free on Gutenberg. It is impressive that he could do that while still a teenager. Delaney became one of my favorite science fiction writers through the 1970s. I recently read one of his much later works, THE MAD MAN, and it replete with so much depraved and filthy sex (as opposed to healthy sex, either straight or gay) I gave it up after twenty pages or so. Rereading this one impressed me enough that it might make me give that one another chance.
