Unpublished Interview With Writer Derek Raymond

Interview with Robin Cook aka Derek Raymond [link fixed]

A transcription of an unpublished interview! My god!

You couldnt write the books I write unless you have been violently tempted to kill someone. Which I most certainly have in the past. I say that in the hidden files.

The Hidden Files is his autobiography. It’s not in print and now very expensive to get a copy. I was lucky to snag one for, I think, less than $US20 locally at The Strand bookstore in NYC. All that talk about The Long Tail and this not being available as an eBook is shocking and tantamount to a cultural crime.

RIP director Joseph Sargent

His Filmography at IMDB had me nodding my head over and over at the things I saw that he directed.

Teclast X10HD 3G Sales Began Today

Weibo:

TeclastX10HDSalesWeibo

As expected today, the Teclast X10HD 3G went on sale. As should have been expected, it was a limited batch.

Since the sale happened hours ago at post time, there’s been no follow-up Weibo from Teclast to say if it sold out or the number sold. This could either be a lack of sales or just plain sloppiness on the part of Teclast.
