I like the new look, though I liked the old look as well. Very glad to see that Bantam will be reprinting Viriconium this year; I bought the Gollancz Fantasy Masterworks edition at a Singaporean used books sale a few years ago, and was blown away with how good it was. It's a good thing that others here in the US will soon be able to enjoy it as well.

Hi Jason. It's an impressively Viriconium thing to pick up a copy of Viriconium at a used book sale in Singapore. Ideally it should be inscribed "to dear Anais from Larrie", some time before the first novel was written, over the quote, "...down the alley, back from hell, when you hear that steeple bell, you must say goodbye to me"; or similar. One thing, if its condition resembles in any way that of the book in "The Gift", try to pass it on. It may not be too late.

I once picked up a copy of Viriconium from a second-hand bookshop at the Bull Ring, Birmingham, before it was demolished. It was the edition with the Barley Brothers on the cover, somehow looked very appropriate for the Bull Ring. No inscription though (unless it had faded away over the centuries).

There was a discussion of the New Weird on the TTA boards more than a year (two years?) ago which have since been removed. I seem to remember hearing that you had archived these on your website. I can't seem to find them, so I think I might be misremembering. Still, I thought I'd ask if you have those threads tucked away on your site somewhere. Thanks much for the info!
Incidentally, I'm quite looking forward to reading _Light_ again next week, for a study I'm doing in radical fantasy.

I think Matt Cheney archived that (*shudder*) discussion.

China Mieville too. But not me, Darja. What's your study going to be called ? "A Loud but Essentially Meaningless Clash of Agendas" ?

Thanks Jeff; found them.
Mike--hee! That's kinda snazzy, I might have to use it.
Actually, I'm curious about the conversation that went on for its own sake. For my study, I'm looking at a spectrum of texts that do some kind of subversive cultural work, older and newer.

Hi Darja. Now that's a proper act of naming. Next time I get "What kind of thing do you write ?" I'll give them, "Oh, a spectrum of texts that do subversive cultural work." It's long to say, but it makes you feel almost as significant as someone in performance art.
