Some time ago, back before the PreCambrian Explosion, when it was just me and Jean Marie and Selkie and the (even then sadly-LJless) OJM rattling around here, with occasional interjections by Lou Anders and brisingamen and peake (remember those days, guys? Before all these boisterous folk started moving in?) I posted a few rather clumsy and embarrassing rants about the state of science fiction today and my rather namby-pamby views on it.
Well, I'm indebted to Neal Asher for pointing me at this article by Richard Morgan (whose novel Black Man I'm currently enjoying enormously) which addresses a few of the points I sort of approached but veered away from. I think the man talks a lot of sense. Any thoughts?

That'll be book dealing, right? Where were you? I bought a couple of books from a couple of stalls.

(I have somewhere in the region of 3000 books, most second hand)

Yep, book dealing. I can't remember where our table was now, to be honest with you. It was a good weekend, though. We DHL'd the books to Glasgow and I had to buy a new suitcase to take them back again (and all the books I'd bought in the meantime. Cost me fifteen quid in excess baggage on the plane from Prestwick.)
