Anyone who's a member of the British Fantasy Society will have read Ramsey's entertaining essays for Prism already, but non-members may be interested to see what they are missing...
The most recent one here is on page turners and unputdownability:
And here's one from 1995 on censorship:
More will appear as I dig my way into the BFS archives...

Thank you for posting these, Steve. I've seen some in Prism but not the older ones. I'm looking forward to the rest.

Ramsey - I loved Murdoch's The Sea, The Sea but have been unable get on with any others I've tried. It's not her fault!
And Ramsey, you remember me recommending William Mayne to you? Well you must try and find his Game of Dark - if you liked Red Shift it has much in common with it, albeit a more languorous and stream-of-consciousness in the prose department. To be honest, the writing amazes me and I'm stunned that this was a kids' book. Certainly most adults now would find it a puzzling struggle.
