10. Harm [2007]

Book
228 p. ; 22 cm.
It is the very near future. Paul Ali, a young science fiction writer, who has the perceived misfortune of a Muslim heritage, has been arrested for no compelling reason. He is held as prisoner B, without a lawyer and isolated. Whenever the powers-that-be fancy a diversion, they beat him up. A foul-mouthed jobsworth subjects him to coarse and unremitting questioning. To escape from this humiliation, prisoner B writes - in the privacy of his mind - a science fiction novel set on a planet in every sense a thousand light years away. But gradually, the two worlds start to converge...In the tradition of dystopias like 1984, this novel shocks and entertains.

11. On SF [2005]

Book
271 p. ; 24 cm.
Smart, funny, often irreverent observations on 150 years of science fiction writing, from a literary master. "On SF" brings together, from a quarter century of writing, great essays by the celebrated writer Thomas Disch from such diverse places as "The Nation", the "New York Times Book Review", the "Atlantic Monthly", "Fantasy", and "Twilight Zone". Disch's perspectives on his genre are skeptical, novel, and often over-the-top. Some essays explore science fiction's roots - Poe, Bradbury, Clarke, Asimov - while others look at modern practitioners such as Stephen King, Philip Dick, Robert Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, and William Gibson. Disch entertains and provokes with essays on UFOs, Science Fiction as a Church, and Newt Gingrich's Futurist Brain Trust.

14. The blond box [2003]

Book
287 p.
El Malabarista, pianist and juggler for a troupe of sexual performance artists, is found dead in the dusty wilderness, his fingers crushed. Beginning like a murder mystery, this novel defies all the usual expectations of a murder mystery plot, by juxtaposing "real" events in two different decades with a draft version of a hack sci-fi novella. This mixed narrative serves as a meta-fictional commentary on the efforts of a retired sex-theatre artist, a hairstylist/pulp writer, a doctoral student, and a host of other characters to, not only solve the murder, but to uncover its motivation, which seems to be linked to El Malabarista's knowledge of the whereabouts of a certain boxed treasure.
