In 1972, Robert Silverberg, even then an acknowledged leader in the science fiction field, published a book that was immediately hailed as a masterpiece. More than three decades later, Dying Inside has stood the test of time and has been recognized as one of the finest novels the field has ever produced. Never wasting a word, Silverberg persuasively shows us what it would be like to read minds, painting an unforgettable portrait of a man shaped by that unique power; a power he is now inexorably losing.
Acclaimed upon first publication by SF critics and mainstream reviewers alike, Dying Inside is overdue for reintroduction to today’s SF audience. This is a novel for everyone who appreciates deeply affecting characterization, imaginative power, and the irreplaceable perspective unique to speculative fiction of the highest order.
“One of those rare novels that manages to be at once dazzling and tender.” (Michael Chabon)
“Dying Inside is an artist’s summit that doubles as an intimate allegory of the artist’s quandary.” (Jonathan Lethem)
“Silverberg has written the perfect science fiction novel for people who don’t like science fiction.” (The New York Times Book Review)
