People's Detailing

Must report that blogging hiatus not likely to end anytime soon, but in the meantime, on the Festival of the Festival of Britain in the Guardian. 'Below the line' and everything.

Why Have You Come to Mourmansk?

A Red Army leaflet in mine (and formerly my Mum's) possession, recently requested by a correspondent. It is in fact an 80s reproduction, but after a fire at her house it took on its current, hauntological appearance...

Crepuscular Aesthetics

Happy new year all from the veritable winter wonderland that is Warszawa. There will be no posts here again for a little while, because I'm working on a short Zer0 book on Pulp, finishing those blog posts that I never completed in the form of a cash-in book for the cash-in reformation.


If I might, errm, 'crowdsource' for a moment, if anyone has a title better than either/both Razzmatazz or The Joy of Pulp, please please let me know in the comments...

In the meantime, here's some things made earlier:

Reviewing a book on Jim Stirling's Red Trilogy in Icon, one of several reviews I've written for them over the last few months but a rare one to make it onto their website...and - not online, but entirely corporeal - on the underpasses of Warsaw in East Midlands arty types YH485's 'Inside' newspaper.

...and presenting, ladies and gentlemen, the Speculative Realist blog generator.
