And we're back!!!

YES and our Summer event can now be revealed:

presents the World Premiere of

Jeff Lint: 'The most imaginative and inconvenient SF writer in modern history'

LINT THE MOVIE documents the life and work of cult SF author and philosopher JEFF LINT, creator of some of the strangest and most inventive works of the twentieth century.

It stars Alan Moore, Steve Aylett, Josie Long, Stewart Lee, Robin Ince, D.Harlan Wilson, Jeff Vandermeer, Leila Johnston, Andrew O'Neill, Bill Ectric, Mitzi Szereto, Vessel [David Devant] and others. 

Featuring clips from Lint's books, cartoons, music, comics and films, plus interviews with fans & critics, the movie follows Lint's life from the days of vintage pulp, through his adoption by the psychedelic counterculture and disastrous scripts for 'Star Trek' and 'Patton'; to his status as an enigmatic cult figure. Never-before-seen archive footage and recordings of Lint himself, and commentary by those who knew and read him, results in a compelling portrait of the creator of Clowns & Insects, Jelly Result, The Stupid Conversation, The Riding On Luggage Show, the CATERER comic, and Catty and the Major, the scariest kids' cartoon ever aired.

Lint’s was a career haunted by death, including the undetected death of his agent, the suspicious death of his rival Herzog, and the unshakable 'Lint is dead' rumours, which persisted even after his death. Like his contemporary Philip K. Dick, he was blithely ahead of his time.

This special Brighton screening will be introduced by Lint biographer and director Mr Steve Aylett

  1. It was only a matter of time before the full teetering fracas got revealed.

  2. Yes, alert the mass - be prepared to warn everyone, even against your will.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. I went into Dave's Comics yesterday and tried to buy tickets for this, but they looked at me like I was deranged and seemed to think that I'd imagined the whole thing. Is there a secret password, or is the whole thing the product of someone's fevered imagination?

  5. There's been a bit of delay getting tickets to Brighton shops, but it's all real and happening still. The tickets will be in Dave's from Wed this week, Thursday at latest. Only Stephen knows for the moment about the tickets being for sale there I expect.
