Reviews

'Lint: in Steve Aylett, this clearly much misunderstood writer has found his Boswell, his Gilchrist, his Ackroyd. A cultural unearthing to equal those of Philip K Dick or Harry Stephen Keeler, this has to be the literary biography of the year. Highly recommended.' - ALAN MOORE, creator of "Watchmen" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" 'Steve Aylett is the most original voice in the literary scene. He is quietly changing the rules and bringing fresh life to contemporary literature. Give him your attention. He will reward you enormously - and make you laugh like a drain.' - MICHAEL MOORCOCK 'More fun than any other mock author biography on the face of this or any other planet' - Bookmunch
