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 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Raymond 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.
