Andrew Nette, journalist, writer and lover of all things pulp, joins me in Derry and Toms to talk about his new book Dangerous Visions and New Worlds Radical Science Fiction, 1950 to 1985 . In this deep dive into the progressive, sexy explosion of challenging stories we wander off on various tangents including an Australian viewpoint on pulp and genre fiction, the wonders of the publisher NEL (New English Library), Jon Pertwee Doctor Who (again), long dead bus drivers and Rollerball!
We also touch on PS Publishing’s Midnight Movie Monographs and I briefly ‘namechecked’ a company that produces fantastic short ‘zines of photography. Unfortunately I didn’t actually name them. They are Café Royal Books and they’re absolutely fantastic.
