Gutted! Unaware until I came to this forum to see what people said about Jerry Lewis

RIP Brian Aldiss... one of the greats.

I do not have time for a re-read of the Helliconia series just now but I think it is time to hunt down my ancient copy of Hothouse

RIP.

To the best of my knowledge, the only book of his I've read was the (non-fiction) Billion Year Spree (since updated as the Trillion Year Spree).

I wonder how many of his more obscure novels will get a few sales? "Barefoot in the Head" was always a trippy strange journey which was a little under rated. I have a tattered old paperback here somewhere, I may have to re-read it.

I tried to read that once. I think you need to be stoned to get it...
