BLOW YOUR MIND, GUV...,
This review is from: Only An Alligator (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
I have just been introduced to Steve Aylett via Michael Moorcock's recommendation and Aylett's work on the Fantastic Metropolis site and I have to say I am ASTOUNDED that I haven't read this incredible writer before. Is it just me or is this what John Bunyan would have written if they had acid back then ? Accomplice is the setting and people have names like Prancer Diego, Bingo Violane who visit places like The Shop of A Thousand Spiders. Believe me, there is no writer on earth like Steve Aylett. He is a true original and I am busily enjoying the next one. If you wish you'd been reading J.G.Ballard since he started, then jump on the Aylett racer -- it's weird and wonderful and all his own! And, for all its hard-boiled origins, it is very, very English. This is the cutting edge of imaginative writing. You won't find much better.
