‘Do not go gentle into that good night./Rage, rage against the dying of the light.’ These are the last two lines of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas’s poem, Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night (1951) and the inspiration for the title of George R. R. Martin’s Dying of the Light. Dirk t’Larien, the main character, lives on the rogue planet Worlorn which is heading into the darker reaches of space – ‘the dying light’ – and, it seems, certain doom. The cover artist for this publication is unknown.
