The Einstein Intersection won the Nebula Award for best science fiction novel of 1967. The surface story tells of the problems a member of an alien race, Lo Lobey, has assimilating the mythology of Earth, where his kind have settled among the leftover artifacts of humanity. The deeper tale concerns, however, the way those who are "different" must deal with the dominant cultural ideology. The tale follows Lobey's mythic quest for his lost love, Friza. In luminous and hallucinated language, it explores what new myths might emerge from the detritus of the human world as those who are "different" try to seize history and the day.

"Generations after humans have left their planet to a new species, a villager named Lobey is searching for a lost love. This short novel is narrated by Stefan Rudnicki in low, rumbling tones that evoke oral storytelling. His steady pace and resonant tone highlight the dreamlike quality of Lobey's odyssey and the story's blend of traditional mythologies and elements of contemporary culture. The air of timelessness allows listeners to absorb the story's action and contemplate the interesting blend of science fiction elements with familiar mythos. Neil Gaiman's quick introduction gives some context for the story's inspirations and eases listeners into Delany's novella regardless of their familiarity with his works.
