Hi Paul

Imagine how hard going it was for Anderson to write the stuff. But no doubt it made him feel all the more spiritual.

I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across them.

I also reccomend Lee Jacksons re-con work of some Victorian classics. I've just finish Rooks work on Young Alf of the Lambeth walk, a book about a 'Hooligan'. I've exchanged tweets with Lee, a really good knowledgable Guy. Check out his website, A Victorian Dictionary.

Its brilliant.

I don't think Anderson had to write books to feel spiritual!

Hooligan Nights is very famous. Not bad reading either. And I endorse your view of Lee Jackson's stuff. Top notch.

There is some debate on if this was a work of fiction or a true account. Either way its a great read.

Having read the sleep incuding Patristic Gospels I think I am ready for anything.
