people say we shouldn't do this but they're wrong.
and I can't stop laughing at 'Moorcock'.
Look at him:
here, i mean he doesnt need defending but Michael Moorcock is actually
a psychonaut (more than most of any of us ever will be) (some of his and his freinds books have even been siezed by police from book store, at one time)
a FREIND OF LEMMYS from way back, played with hawkwind sometimes.
a bit of an prolific extreme writer(then, he did 'help break moulds,,,back in the day' yakety yak), has been involved with politics and fashion and encouraging new writers and did a lot to try to encourage spread good intelligent science fiction. He has written loads of books some trashy seeming some award winning. The Jerry Cornelius stuff was rather ground breaking......he was into introducing different concepts of writing methods. He gave up his patent or right or quality control to invite (and print) anyone to write jerry cornelius stories. He messed with the format.
He does also like trash so it might be that he liked this book or it might be that he has been selectively quoted or iot might be that this book is actually good and inventive/ironic,
Michael Moorcock really HAS thrown his typewriter from an upper story window and lost his hack job cos of it.
He isnt as fuddy duddy wierdy beardy as he appears
also the book wasn't written by him but by David Garnett.
The point! Look at it go! Did you see it??? Oh, no?
I'm going to attach some post-script xoxoxoxox gibberish to it. <3
but i think my comment still stands, alley
I just mean in general. But now is not the time or place to discuss this; this thread is about alien lizard DJs, goddamnit.
he's a DJ!
he's so obv a DJ. Though he has the headphones over both ears rather than in one ear grasped between shoulder and head
I'm not sure what's going on.
Wayne is in Paradise. At least, he should be. Marriage to the dangerously beautiful Kiru and an endless honeymoon on a resort planet should be enough for any man. But he can't help wishing that something would happen. Then something does - Kiru disappears. Suddenly the universe is a very big place.
Fighting back tears.
"Rather like the Hitch Hiker's Guide, but without the humour. A plot which only works by a series of unlikely coincidences.
It begins with the girl going swimming and apparently disappearing, her husband searches the sea in the area for half an hour and then goes running off on a wild goose chase thinking she's been abducted. Switch back to the beach, and lo and behold the girl swims up and finds hubby gone, immediately assumes he's left her to search for his missing finger (don't ask!) on Earth and runs off in that direction. It is topped off with a weak, contrived ending, that does not answer the question did they ultimately save the universe or not? Several apparently important characters are introduced in the last few chapters, but exactly who they are and their actions are unexplained."
with the sole purpose of reading this book?
is the lizard wearing a baseball cap?
How would I go about become an illustrator who gets to draw this stuff?
wasn't really worth it...
with that babies face???!
it was awesome
Cheesy romantic novels deserve a whole thread of their own, they're just amazing. (By which I mean amazing in their ridiculousness, if there was any question.)
