The Fictional Man

image

I started reading Al Ewing’s novel while waiting for the last train back from Gamecamp and immediately decided I had to devote a chunk of Sunday to consuming the whole thing.

Garth Marenghi dropped into a Phillip K Dick novel, this uses its science fictionĀ conceitĀ of cloned humans with programmed personalities of fictional characters to act in Hollywood movies as a device to illustrate its points as its lead goes down the rabbit-hole of where a story comes from. Smart, funny and wise, I recommend this highly.
