Reaching us here at Sfrevu quite some time after publication, genre iconoclast Steve Aylett's brilliantly creative Lint is very much worth the wait. Essentially a spoof biography, Lint charts the career of Jeff Lint, contemporary of SF writers such as Philip K. Dick. A superb satire, Lint was originally published in the US by the now defunct Thunders Mouth Press and published here in the UK by Snowbooks.
"Lint: in Steve Aylett, this clearly much misunderstood writer has found his Boswell, his Gilchrist, his Ackroyd. A cultural unearthing to equal those of Philip K Dick or Harry Stephen Keeler, this has to be the literary biography of the year. Highly recommended." -- Alan Moore.
