On today's episode, I talk to writer Steve Aylett. Born in Bromley,
Steve is the author of over a dozen novels, comics and collections
of short fiction. He started to get acclaim for his writing with
his third novel Slaughtermatic, which was shortlisted for the 1998
Philip K. Dick Award. Slaughtermatic was part of his Beerlight
series, and this, along with the Accomplice series, make up the
bulk of his most well-known work, although one of his best works,
Lint - a satirical, Zelig-like biography of a Philip K. Dick/Hunter
S. Thompson/Ken Kesey pastiche - stands relatively alone. His
latest comic, Hyperthick, will be released at the end of July by
Floating World Comics.
