Rip Van Winkle Awakes to a Brave New World
link to my other blog which I write as publisher of the small poetry imprint, Rack Press. It's a tale of small publishers and big giants and I make the link between the effortless power of Amazon and Huxley's Brave New World. Huxley, of course, died 50 years ago this week on the very day of the Kennedy assassination as those of you who caught me talking last Tuesday on BBC Radio 4 about him will know. That programme by the way can be downloaded as a podcast ("A Brave New World", Radio 4) because it is a Radio 4 Documentary of the Week.
