      Ellimist is right. The first page is brilliant. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

      Edit: Going to save the rest until I'm finished with 1Q84. Less than 200 pages to go.

        I now know what happens when you take , The Fifty Year Sword and The Promise of Meaning and mix it all Navidson Recordy in a blender. [The reports of Clip 5 being banned from YouTube are greatly exaggerated. B.C.]

          So how long is Clip 4 itself?

          I'm sure it's worth the $3, I'm just trying to justify $17 plus p&p ...

            23 pages (20, not counting the title collage and epigraph page).

            Edit: the rest of the magazine is pretty cool too. The fake/alternative-reality film posters in particular are neat. And, of course, MZD's influence can be felt elsewhere, e.g. on p. 10 in Anthony Miller's "A History of the Cinema 1920-2014" (which, like the film posters, is really an alternative history of the cinema) where we read "Darc’s The Zoo is hailed as a masterpiece and draws comparisons to Griffith, Gance, Sarre, Eisenstein and Tod Browning, but remains unseen."

              B&N has it for almost half that price (see Hazel's link above) . . .why pay more?

                Right, thats it. Ordered from The Book Depositary - the cheapest option for the UK. Although that does mean I will have to wait a few days, rather than have the pdf instantly.

                  Finally got around to finishing this story... I loved it. About half-way through, I felt a bit bored, like some of the tedious parts of HoL. But the last third of it was really well done and enjoyable.

                    I loved the little self-referential moments, especially those that refer to things that don't, technically, exist yet.

                    Les CHATS de Maldoror for example

                      I ordered this a couple of days ago, still anxiously waiting it's arrival. Finished awhile back and am really craving some more of Mark's work.

                      Finished this up now, really great piece. I especially liked the Don't Look Back references.

                        Don't know how I slept on this for so long, but my physical copy just came today!

                        It's all wrong to do, but I definitely do feel a little bit of joy when I open a MZD something and see a bunch of colors looking back at me.

                        Good to see that Start a War quote by the National leading off Clip 4. About time I saw eye to eye on MZD on music that is really great.
