I wish would Prynne hurry up and put out that collection of his late stuff, if he doesn't get a move on it's gonna end up being posthumous.

Just read it again, so good.

Prynne's political/topical stuff is terrifying, I was reading Refuse Collection again the other day and listened to that recording of him reading it, so fierce. Still can't face reading To Pollen.

These abyss ones seem a lot more lyrical than that, maybe less angry, but you get such a vivid sense of the desperation and terror of the refugees from it.
