Interviewtf with Steve Aylett

Steve Aylett was born in Bromley, England. He left school at 17 and worked in a book warehouse, and later in law publishing, where he invented the concept of ‘fractal litigation’, whereby the flapping of a butterfly’s wings on one side of the world results in a massive compensation claim on the other. His first book “The Crime Studio” was generally regarded as a cry for help. This was followed by “Bigot Hall”, “Slaughtermatic”, “The Inflatable Volunteer”, “Toxicology”, “Atom”, “Shamanspace”, “Only an Alligator”, “The Velocity Gospel”, “Dummyland”, “Karloff’s Circus”, “And Your Point Is?”, “Rebel at the End of Time” and “LINT”. He was a finalist for the 1998 Philip K Dick Award (for “Slaughtermatic”) and won the Jack Trevor Story Prize in 2006.

You don’t have to be gay to find penises fascinating. The comedy „Superbad,“ for instance, features some funky dickophilia moments. What do you think about enhancing (or encocking) classic films the way you enhance (or encock) newsies? Oskar Schindler smoking a dickarette, for fuck’s sake?

SA
Elbows are okay.

DA
Would you like this interviewtf more if it had another title, like “No, Sir-iously,” or “’Have you explained your pupils to the cloud?’ I asked my ex-mom. But she was without vigor, she just stayed very calm and revised myhermy strangeness over and over again”?

Bonus question: What’s your take on the following 8 Nonsemes?

My little eyes were turning
in the wrong direction entirely.
I withdrew them slowly,
and then stuck them onto a bug.

Unfortunately, gRays (white as pus)
do not go on and on and on.
So I ask Raoul,
who happens to be a horse.

Kogel has a secret got:
Who is Kogel? Satanista?
Prima? Wilburt? Flyr? Barrista?
Kogel is 1 mystery.

I’m afraid of that day
when you discover (“Yikes!”)
that oftentimes
licks convert to trees of sorts.

Night of madness.
Cerebral, petrol-engined fields of saw.
Homo Noctis I wanna be,
yet instead: Safida(t)fabric.

SA
Elbows are okay.

DA
„!“

SA
Elbows are okay.
