    THE MISSING LINKS
    Jay McInerney is interviewed in The Independent on Sunday: "It was really weird, I was in his book [Lunar Park] and it was like me frozen in time from 15 years ago. It was a little disturbing. I wanted to say, Jesus, Bret, you know, let's move on". * Mark Thwaite of Ready Steady Book is the 51st most influential figure in British publishing according to today's Observer. "It's not yet two years since I first pointed Splinters readers RSB's way; a Wile E. Coyote pointing to Roadrunner kinda way," writes Steve of Spike. See also the Literary Saloon's reaction. * BBC drama recreates the life and times of Kenneth Williams. * Trinie Dalton, whose Wide Eyed anthology is published in Dennis Cooper's collection, reflects on Simon Reynolds' post-punk history Rip It Up and Start Again (which has just been published in the US). * Poppy Z. Brite on post-Katrina Mardi Gras: "Not to take anything away from those who actually lost their lives or homes, but everyone in south Louisiana has died a little, and this is one of our ways of coming back to life" (via dogmatika). * Resonance FM's new blog. * The London Book Fair protest. * More on the electronic publishing revolution. * The Believer on Colin MacInnes: "'If our world is not interesting enough,' he wrote, 'one must try and invent one that is'." * More on DBC Pierre: "It's a truism that a debut album is often so good because the artist has taken an entire life to write it, whereas second albums are often so weak because the whole process has to be repeated in a matter of months. Though novel-writing usually takes longer than an album (unless you're Kate Bush), the principle remains the same: where do you go when your debut contains every flamboyant fizz of your talent? . . . Ludmila's Broken English is a disappointment, but I remain optimistic. Now that the second-novel pressures have been satisfied, Pierre can relax, take a deep breath and reload all the controlled delirium that made his debut such an unadulterated pleasure. In the long run, let's hope it's this novel, and not Vernon God Little, that's the momentary blip". You can watch and listen to the author here: "'I don't get up in the morning and write,' he laughs. 'The days are given over to hygiene and administration and nutrition, stuff that's really unimportant in the history of the world. It's not till everyone's gone to bed that the world's a blank canvas again and you can run with the ball without anyone watching. It seems to be in the spirit of why we're here that I should steal away with this stuff in the night and see where it goes'." * JG Ballard on Hollywood's version of Empire of the Sun. * Posh porn. * Should novels have a happy ending? * Jane Brown's photography. * How young can you get?
