Editorial Reviews

Asimov's - Paul DiFilippo
These mini-essays explicating "Scorn & Meaning in Jeff Lint's fiction" all bear the true and accurate stamp of gleeful derangement so characteristic of Lint the man, Lint the books, and Lint the monster from the fourth dimension.
SFSite - Jeff VanderMeer
Nonsense has never been as pointed or as fun as in And Your Point Is? It also provides a nice companion piece to Lint, without (oddly enough) just repeating what made that book appealing.
The Zone - Book Reviews Editor
Lint is a rebel in a world that refuses to appreciate true originality while celebrating the shallow and unoriginal. Having met Jeff Lint, I always feel a tinge of regret when I browse the typically unappetising fare on offer on the SF shelves at my local Waterstones, but, until he actually somehow sidles his way into reality, we at least have Steve Aylett.
Nietzsche's Kisses - Lance Olsen
A collection of outlandish critifictional forays written by madmen into the work of an equally mad SF cult author--who doesn't happen to exist. Yet nobody's madder than the collection's "editor," Steve Aylett. Every sentence here is an electric shock, every paragraph a feverdream novel in dense satiric miniature that you wish to hell you had thought of first.
Author of Meat Puppet Cabaret - Steve Beard
As fans of Aylett's earlier fake biography, LINT, already know, Jeff Lint is a hardcore pulp SF writer whose poetic genius is forever misunderstood by a society trading in structural hypocrisy. In this caustic bibliographic follow-up, Aylett demonstrates once again that he is a master of the philosophical one-liner, packing whole universes of despair into a single comedic sentence.
