Rip Van Winkle Awakes to a Brave New World

Copious apologies to readers of this blog who have noticed a word-famine or long sleep over the past couple of months.  I have been very busy and writing entries to my blog has rather fallen by the wayside.  I fully intend to wake up and get scribbling but in the meantime here is a 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.
