(June 1965 - Edited by Moorcock)

Absolutely bloody wonderful ... 'New Worlds' under Moorcock. What was his little riff ... the new god is William S., not Edgar Rice?
Actually, what happened to Barrington Bayley?
Some great writing, made a lot of the so-called avant garde of the time look completely pointless. I always wish poor old B.S. Johnson had got in with this lot, he'd probably be alive today.

There's a Barrington Bayley website, but it looks like it hasn't been updated in about 3 years...

Did you know that Bayley's "The Star Virus" was an influence on Bill Burroughs?

Yes, Old Bill was always interested in SF - I liked the way he pulled in stuff from everywhere and fed it into his warped little brain.
There is, or was, a very good anthology of stories from Moorcock's New Worlds available ... some excellent stuff in there ... Ballard obviously, Bayley, Pamela Zoline (who wrote some wonderful stuff) and the great David I. Masson ... someone who just stopped writing - mores the pity.
