Why So FP ?

Posted to Utterances




Most of what he wrote was pointless shite. He was out of his head half the time even he didn't know what he was talking about. Most of the stories don't make any sense, well certainly not Naked Lunch or Cities Of The Red Night. Some of his short stories about Interzone were great of that there is no doubt and his Spare Ass Annie stuff was brilliant but a lot of it was and is crap. I know that's only my opinion but you have to admit that to recommend a WSB book to a novice reader is risky.
