Marketing Dalek: CON-TACT-HAS-BEEN-MADE!

Historians and archaeologists will discover that the advertisements of our time are the richest and most faithful reflections that any society ever made of its entire range of activities.

This is the bit where I announce that half of us have got some essays in both of these fine books from Miwk.  There're three essays in one book and two in the other.  In order to maintain some sense of mystery I'm not going to tell you which way round that goes.1

Go on, treat yourself.

1.  But that's fine because you're going to buy both, yeah?  Yeah?  Yeah? Yeah?2

2.  By the way, this isn't the reason we've vanished recently - life's got in the way.  We anticipate a proper return within...  Oh...  The next four weeks suit you?

'I'm not telling you,' said Treece wisely.
- Malcolm Bradbury, Eating People is Wrong

Me:  A while ago, half of us wrote some things for some books.  This isn't one of those, but it's going here anyway.  Hope you like it.
