R. A. Lafferty Centenary

Still planning to get back to this blog with science fiction reviews.  In the meantime, I've been very busy over at my Lafferty blog.  The Guardian recently called Lafferty a 'secret sci-fi genius', so he's a relevant author to this blog too.  You can see a round up of news about him at my Lafferty blog. But more important and poignant to me at the moment is that his centenary was yesterday.  I wrote a tribute to him on the Lafferty blog, called 'The Door Into A Dozen Or A Hundred Planet-Falls A Day'.  He's truly my favourite author and he's worthy of your attention, I assure you.
