Spaghetti and a Space Girl
Just a few days ago, I did a radio-show in which I mentioned that from the early-to-mid-80s onwards I wrote a lot of articles for magazines, fanzines and newspapers that finally folded and - as a result of them having been written on my old, fairly useless word-processor of the day - have pretty much vanished into oblivion.
So, I said to the host, unless you have copies of - as just one of many examples - Quest, the mid-80s version of the later UFO Magazine published by the sadly missed Graham Birdsall and his brother, Mark, many of those articles are gone for good.
It was this show that prompted one emailer to ask me why don't I dig out those articles that have survived and put them out as a collective anthology, which would allow people to see at least some of them?
Well, I have actually already done that!
It's a 2011 book called Space Girl Dead on Spaghetti Junction and includes examples of my writing from way back in 1982 to the present day and covers very hard to find old articles on everything from UFOs to Bigfoot, rock music to Hollywood scandal, TV shows banned by the BBC to foot-and-mouth disease, and much more!
You can get hold of Space Girl Dead on Spaghetti Junction - and all those still-surviving articles from yesteryear - right here!
