    Thanks for that. I was not aware of that interview.
    Remember that interview and VS was talked about.
    Wonder if Horn and Downes ever had a falling out? Howe and Downes seemed to have coupled up.

    Was Downes sidelined during AIMR?

    YES turned into factions pretty fast

    White and Squire

    Howe and Downes

    Trevor and wife Jill (move into production only)

    It could have been included easily in the Fly From Here, Return Trip or live albums.

    Horn obviously chose not to but it would have been much better than the awful dirge on the last two studio albums.

    Well I've tried. The first couple of chapters are like someone shot him in the head and everything in there just spewed out onto the pages in a random fashion. If that's "literary credentials" you can keep them, I'd rather read my missus' shopping list.
    Is anything not so straightforward to read "pulp fiction"? It seems a very eccentric criterion.

    The Guardian called Empire of the Sun the greatest British novel about the Second World War and it was on the Booker shortlist. A much more significant work than that year's winner Anita Brookner's [who, I hear you ask?] Hotel du Lac which I've read but can remember little of other than it being a bit sub Virginia Woolf in the intensity of its navel gazing.

    I'm guessing you've never read Empire of the Sun [for example]. Ballard is as far away from pulp fiction [I assume that's what you mean] as it gets. The referenced isn't science fiction, but he's one of a handful of writers in that genre that give it literary credentials.

    His, and Ray Bradbury's, short stories are wonderful!

    That's Entertainment.

    Do you mean Ballard? No. Dickens and Shakespeare are Dickens and Shakespeare, so obviously he can't be. I really don't see the point you're trying to make?
