Very good and very insightfull not bother too much with The Eye of the Beholder film...sadly enough it is way below the book...I cannot agree more about more Derek Raymond¹s books which are very hard to find since that Factory series...also some Spanish writers need to be translated and some Scandinavian or German ones, which have found their ways on French bookstores shelves....
