The Towers of Toron is a 1964 science fantasy novel by Samuel R. Delany, and is the second novel in the "Fall of the Towers" trilogy.[1] The novel was originally published as Ace Double F-261, together with The Lunar Eye by Robert Moore Williams.[2]

The stories of the Fall of the Towers trilogy were originally set in the same post-holocaust Earth as Delany's earlier The Jewels of Aptor; however, linking references were removed in later revised editions.[3]
