A recent article I have written for the Guardian books blog, to link in with the launch of the New Weird anthology from tachyon books.

Nice article Damien with some great plugs for IZ and the old TTA. However, I admire your nerve in posting it there as Guardian commenters don't pull punches and I'd even go as far as to say some seem to court controversy and simply delight in playing devil's advocate.

That's the internet in general, isn't it? ;)

Its all part of the fun really, although by the Grauniads standard my piece has had quite a friendly response so far.
