Brian Aldiss

Reading

Indoors with Delilah
An e-book, in .pdf format, containing fifty of Brian’s delightful mini-sagas.

Short Stories
Seven short stories, mostly not available anywhere else: Tomorrow’s Yesterdays, The Skeleton, A Better Morphosis, Tralee of Young Man, An Innovation Concerning Horses, Sunlight and The Man and a Man With His Mule.

Journalism
This section contains a selection of Aldiss journalism from sources such as newspapers like The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph to respected journals such as Nature. Included is a re-written version of three articles from The Guardian on Aldiss’ experiences with movie directors who were interested in filming his novels – perhaps the definitive low-down on why Kubrick never made A. I.

Novel Excerpts
Excerpts selected by Brian from five of his most recent novels: The Cretan Teat, Jocasta, Superstate, White Mars and Walcot.

Non-Fiction
A very long autobiographical essay, The Glass Forest, an article on the Helliconia Trilogy, Helliconia: How and Why and the transcript of a long conversation with science fiction writer James Blish recorded in the 1970s.
