An interlocking mass of references

In which we read a meta-book


The Archers, The Avengers, Roy Of The Rovers, Quatermass, Angela Carter, P. G. Wodehouse, Giles, George Orwell. Hi-de-Hi, Spenser, Shakespeare, Crowley, Dee, The Prisoner. James Bond, Scoop!, and Bulldog Drummond. Virginia Woolf and John Cleland, all bound together on different paper stocks.

I’ve been reading The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier, which I picked up from Travelling Man‘s Newcastle shop yesterday.* And that’s only the references I spotted myself, without reading any annotations. As Ian said recently, “Alan Moore is geekier than all of us.”

* From a shop assistant who, I noticed, was wearing a rather nice-looking black leather collar with a lockable buckle on it. I was tempted to compliment her and ask her where she got it from – lockable-buckle collars can be hard to find – but I was with Kim, who would have been mightily embarrassed.
