Experiment Perilous

(1983)
Three Essays on Science Fiction
A non fiction book by

 
Norman Spinrad describes the writing of his famous BUG JACK BARRON novel by answering three questions: "how did I come to write Bug Jack Barron? what urged me to do it? how do I hope to continue writing SF while bugging editors?" He goes on to explain the behind-the-scenes that went on with the book, which was banned in the UK. Originally one third of the booklet called "Experiment Perilous" with other contributions by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Alfred Bester, this "making of" offers great insights into the famed New Worlds era of science fiction as well as the publishing process, making it a must read for all readers and writers of science fiction.
