“The shadow cast by the luminous screen…” – an interview with Liam Young


The fascinating new book from Sonic Acts, The Geologic Imagination, is out now – and features my interview with Liam Young, conducted whilst we were deep at sea on a container ship last summer. Here’s a little taster:

"This was a pleasant surprise! I picked it up on a whim from a mention elsewhere and seeing it was cheap on the Kindle store. An intriguing post-apocalyptic premise (the internet goes down, for good) and a UK setting that isn't bloody London made this" Read more of this review »

"For me, the mark of a good dystopian novel is both in its ability to project itself onto the future, and to hit on the realities of our current climate. Dystopian novels should make us think about the future, our current reality, the politics and cul" Read more of this review »

Infinite Detail by Tim Maughan
“the hydroponic farms in the old buildings at the back of the Croft, the ones left over from before, the ones the old hippies used to grow their vegetables before the crash. When Grids took the Croft he put them all over to growing ganja, until he realized he could get a higher price growing herbs and spices—the things the Land Army didn’t provide through their tightly controlled rationing, the things everybody wanted. Illicit flavors, tastes, and smells.”

“The pinnacle of human effort had been to create a largely hidden, superefficient, globe-spanning infrastructure of vast ships and city-size container ports—and all to do nothing more than keep feeding capitalism’s hunger for the disposable. To move plastic trash made by the global poor into the hands of hapless, clueless consumers. A seemingly unstoppable beast built from parasitic tentacles, clenching the planet with an iron grip.”
Tim Maughan, Infinite Detail

“Yes, that’s right. We’re so young we don’t remember a time where there was no Internet,”
