I'm nearing the end of the 5,000 word monstrosity that is my ICW extended essay. After researching almost entirely at random, here are all the essays I haven't written:
Alienation and possession: engendering emotive and intellectual responses to writing, Toby Litt, Mark Z. Danielewski, M John Harrison
Escape Velocity: writing against escapism, Michael Moorcock, China Mieville, M John Harrison
Fucking Thatcher!: writing as a political response, China Mieville, Alan Hollinghurst, M John Harrison
I'm just not happy: trying to induce suicide in your audience, Thomas Ligotti, H P Lovecraft, M John Harrison
Some of those are jokes.
