Brian Aldiss

Sex and the Black

Comment
An Aldiss cut-up, first publication anywhere. Brian Aldiss made this book on Friday 3rd June, 1988, a wet day, in his home in oxfordshire. The chief implements used were an Olivetti ET121, UHU, a pair of his grandfather’s scissors, and an Olympia UTAX C-116 photocopier. The illustrations come from various non-copyright sources. This book is designed to amuse readers of Interzone. Distributed free with Interzone magazine. Printed on very cheap and fragile paper. There was an unconfirmed 25 copy hardcover edition for sale. Not listed in Margaret Aldiss’s bibliography, and listed only as a phantom title in A Man for all Seasons (Galactic Central Bibliographies for the Avid Reader).

FIRST EDITION: Avernus, 1988
