Samuel R. Delany. Babel-17. New York: Ace Books, [1966].

Nebula award-winning novel by African American author and polymath Samuel R. Delany, whose early works established him as one of the major writers in the field. Babel-17 is a tale of intergalactic war, with language used as a weapon, and only the poet Rydra Wong is adequate to the task of preventing sabotage and invasion.
