British author Steve Aylett writes in multiple genres, usually simultaneously, combining elements of science fiction and fantasy with comedy and a high literary aesthetic. As a result of his unique method of narrative hybridization, Aylett has garnered throngs of devotees in unde...rground circles. He is simply too clever and grandiloquent for genre readers, and he's too genre for literary readers, infusing his meta-pulp fictions with intricate networks of hi-tech and/or bizarre novums. Like J. G. Ballard, Aylett belies, if not capsizes, formulaic methods and ultimately constitutes a genre in and of himself. This book offers a comprehensive commentary and analysis of his singular body of work, including original essays by D. Harlan Wilson, Spencer Pate, Bill Ectric, Andrew Wenaus, Iain Matheson, Robert Kiely, Jim Matthews, John Oakes, Michael Norris, Tony Lee, Sam Reader; commentary by Alan Moore and Michael Moorcock, and an exclusive interview with Aylett by Rachel Haywire - reportedly the last interview Aylett will grant for at least two years.
