    Who the FUCK has been hiding Steve Aylett from me for thirty nine years I want answers What is this, a conspiracy of librarians A booksellers union grudge This rebarbative but very funny novel takes the form of a biography of the pulp writer Jeff Lint a sort of mash up of Phillip K Dick, Robert E Howard and Alan Moore and it is filled withsurprising word collocations and startling throwaway ideas than anything I ve read for months From the opening,...

    This book is a godsend and has saved me from financial and mental collapse.When I was young, my father would force me watch old recordings of Lint s Catty and the Major whenever I misbehaved After developing a tolerance to the emotional damage, Catty and the Major became my favorite program and I began participating in nightly massacres of my neighbor s pets to incur my father s wrath So he discovered what I was up to and threw out all the Catty and the Major tapes.After that, I was always sta This book is a godsend and has saved me from financial and mental collapse.When I was young, my father would force me watch old recordings of Lint s Catty and the Major whenever I misbehaved After developing a tolerance to the emotional damage, Catty and the Major became my favorite program and I began participating in nightly massacres of my neighbor s pets to incur my father s wrath So he discovered what I was up to and threw out all the Catty and the Major tapes.After that, I was always staying home from school to vomit to the tune of all the withdrawal symptoms that accompany a life without Catty and the Major I started reading horribly written novelizations of Catty and the Major my father was fine with it as long as Lint didn t do the writing in order to ease my pain Then I graduated to consorting with shady characters covered in fudge...

    While we were writing a paper in my 12th grade history class, our teacher gave us some sage advice about what to do when you come up with a dazzling turn of phrase that doesn t serve your thesis Cut it out and put it in a little box Aylett apparently had such a box, and has emptied it into this book These gems, in the forms of the titles of Lint s books, the names of the pulps in which he published when starting out, his critics reactions to his work and ...

    Comedy gods Stewart Lee and Bridget Christie are forever wanging on about this book and it carries an endorsement from Alan Moore so what could possibly go wrong Well, I ve finally manged to finish it, at the second attempt, and it really got on my nerves Linguistically inventive, satirical, pretty short, ace art work, but unfortunately it frequently disappears up its own absurdist arsehole, to the extent that I couldn t understand what I was reading and t...

    Fake bio of an extremely eccentric, obscure science fiction writer Aylett s masterpiece The book is frequently hilarious and disturbing in a way that is almost impossible to describe Suffice it to say that like all of Aylett s most memorable characters, Jeff Lint is at war with the fabric of the cosmos itself, and wields language as a weapon Also in keeping with Aylett, the most preposterous phrases and assertions are welded to a rock solid earnest delivery It s like someone trying to hold Fake bio of an extremely eccentric, obscure science fiction writer Aylett s masterpiece The book is frequently hilarious and disturbing in a way that is almost impossible to describe Suffice it to say that like all of Aylett s most memorable characters, Jeff Lint is at war with the fabric of the...

    You know how some really great Guided by Voices melodies are ruined by the absolutely absurdist lyrical poetry of Robert Pollard where, like, where he sings something goofily impressionist like Asparagus reaper vestigial tail instead of something concrete like In the morning, at dawn, the boys set sail for example That s what s kicking me in the nuts about this book It s a great idea, this book, with, yes, flashes of brilliance, but the author seems to insist on doing absolutely nothing You know how some really great Guided by Voices melodies are ruined by the absolutely absurdist lyrical poetry of Robert Pollard where, like, where he sings something goofily impressionist like Asparagus reaper vestigial tail instead of something concrete like In the morning, at dawn, the boys set sail for example That s what s kicking me in the nuts about this book It s a great idea, this book, with, yes, flashes of brilliance, but the author seems to insist on doing absolutely nothing in the way of making his fake titles sound real, that they fit in the New Wave sci fi pulp era Ballard, Dick, Disch, Ellison, Moorcock, Sladek It s also highly manic, the narrative Not my mode, but that s not the author s fault, eh Have enjoyed, though, the chapters on Star Trek and the surreal cartoon show Catty and the Major which seems to inform the Creepypasta descriptions of the lost episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy Aylett was ahead of his time, but, also, he ...

    A RESULT, IF NOT QUITE A FULL BELLYAylett s biographical study of the notorious pulp author Jeff Lint is a teasingly exquisite piece It takes your hand, leads you into the tire kicking world of the much maligned writer and shows you so many tantalising insights into his life I loved it but it left me wanting so muchWhat colour were the velvet swatches held by Lint and Herzog in the freezing lot How high were Herzog s graph paper barricades What shape were the gnostic knobs Lint manipu A RESULT, IF NOT QUITE A FULL BELLY...

    Moments of pure genius, sadly watered down to fit 200 pages Reminds me a lot of Radio 4 s 3 part fake biography on Crichton Wheeler, lifelong sufferer of Splicer s Disease Just as the protagonist of Wheeler s Fortune has an imaginary ailment that quickly becomes tiresome, Lint s mentalism takes a backseat to just about everything else in the book, in effect relegating him to the position of shit magnet That said, read in short bursts, Lint is muchto...

    Steve Aylett s Lint is a very silly, very strange little book about what has to be the worlds most difficult novelist Jeff Lint I really liked the damm thing, but I also have to say that it was nowhere nearly as brilliant as I ve been to...
