New Digital Editions of Speak of the Devil, Utopia/Dystopia and Vectis

I am hard at work on a new small book, which I hope to finish up some time in the next few weeks. My general lack of activity over the past month or so has been due to the pursuing of a couple of commercial projects, which I may speak more about in the future. In the mean-time, I have gone over and prepared new digital editions of my three last major books, including numerous small tweaks and corrections. These new editions shall be available on lulu in the next couple of days. Here they are in PDF form:

Speak of the Devil



Please remember that all my books were designed with the physical format in mind and are best read on screen using a PDF reader that offers a 'two-up' reading format with the cover page separate. In Foxit Reader this is the Seperate Cover Page option under the View tab, in Adobe Acrobat it's Two Page View with the Show Cover Page in Two Page View option ticked on the View>Page Display submenu.

Letters to the Editor: Giving a Platform

Sent to the I's 'Voices' section, in response to an article on the recent All Party Parliamentary Group report on prostitution.

I would like to congratulate your paper on balancing your article on the parliamentary report on prostitution (March 3) with the views of an actual sex worker. The voices of sex workers are those that should be heard the loudest in this debate, and all too often they are ignored or sidelined. There is significant criticism of and opposition to the Nordic model from sex workers and former sex workers, including journalists, activists and academics, both in the UK and abroad, that simply cannot be dismissed (as it often is) as apologia produced by sex industry insiders.
