    Throughout the years many discussions have taken place about Derek Raymond
    (aka Robin Cook) on Rara-Avis and you will find some of them in the Rara archives for sure. He is very important but has never been published a lot in the US and readers here had to rely a lot on imports from UK or France (for those reading French since he has always been quite big there), or Germany...

    For better info go to and some of his readings (with musicians from Gallon Drunk) are available on DVD and even available on Netflix. I was Dora Suarez is an incredible book. His autobiography is also very good reading...although only available in French these days at a reasonable price.
