it was amazing
Read in January, 2000

I picked up this book up very randomly when rushing for a flight and desperate for some work-unrelated reading. As I settled into my seat and read his description of how the tops of clouds seen from a plane actually are solid an can be walked on, I was drawn into the strange world of Stark. Like a warm duvet wrapped around me on a cold, this world was a place I just wanted to be and to stay. But beware, just like the world of duvets there are beasties to contend with in your dreams and nightmare.

Although Stark's world involves a heavy quotient of sci-fi weirdness, it is internally self-consistent and most importantly feels psychologically 'right' - to me at least. I read lots of MMS's other books afterwards, but hated them. I just had to content myself with rereading Only Forward lots of times, which is very rare for me.
