Here are the links to the piece and to an excerpt of "The Song of Synth," my very radical novel published by PS Publishing in the UK, along with "Asinth" - I put the link too, so you can read what they're about and feel very radical too:

It's funny to be labeled, but it's even funnier to be self-labeled - and I chose the second solution. I wrote on some FB post that I was a "leftist's leftist,2 first as a midly provocative joke, then I realized how much that was connected with being a "writer's writer." Synchronicitically enough, the venerable radical underground paper International Times asked me for a small piece on this sntence, which was published on its site. Looking back, two weeks later, I feel very proud of being categorized - or rather categorizing myself - as a "radical" writer - not because of the romantic delusion of the upcoming revolution - there will be one, of course, but I will probably have nothing to do with it - but because I suddenly realize how much "Committed Literature" or "Littérature Engagée" has disappeared from the shelves since the Berlin Wall has fallen. A few movie directors still, but that's basically it. At least in the Euramarican world we're living in. So I am proud of the label. Very, very proud.
