The LA REVIEW OF BOOKS interviews Norman Spinrad. I keep picking up his stuff at used book sales, but I’ve only read BUG JACK BARRON and his ebook, QUARANTINE. This makes me want to hunt up THE IRON DREAM.
It’s fun to read about the publishing business, even if (especially because?) there’s some sniping involved, and although you are perhaps not strictly obliged to respect the cojones of a dude who claims THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS hasn’t “had quite the legs of BUG JACK BARRON,” you could at least see where that might come from.
