Steve Aylett

UK flag (b.1967)

Steve Aylett is a satirical science fiction and slipstream author of several bizarro books. He is renowned for his colorful satire attacking the manipulations of authority, and for having reams of amusing epigrams and non-sequiturs only tangentially related to what little plot the books possess.

Aylett left school at age 17 and worked in a book warehouse, and later in law publishing.

Aylett claims to have books appear in his brain in one visual "glob" which looks like a piece of gum (but denies it's "channelled").
