A wide-ranging and authorative survey of the quietly experimental post war British authors who have been in the main critically ignored and overlooked. Although there is some over-reliance on summary and personal opinion, and Booth cannot do justice to the complexities of Ballard and Moorcock in his brief contexualising survey, this is an enjoyable read and a useful compendium.

Cover 4.0 Looks like essential reading for all new authors, although perhaps books have moved on since 1980 in line with Cyril Connolly's view about constant movement and change in story telling. I will read on in the view this book section. Thanks Alexander of the Allrighters' and Ywnwab!
