Belated 10th anniversary

I just realised that this website has been around for over 10 years, in fact it started in June 2008.

Happy 10th anniversary!

A huge thank you to Iain for letting me create this website and for feeding it with details about his work and his life.

 

Living with Buildings and Walking with Ghosts, a review

One of the advantages of working 12 hours a day is that one can miss almost anything else other than work.

For example the fact that Iain just published not one, but two new books!

I missed the opportunity to even announce these books post-publication.

Here is a review… “The Urban Wanderer” on a website subtitled “The Newspaper of Resistance”.
