This brief article hardly does the novel justice -- it sounds like a merry gay romp. Unfortunately, I'm too busy with neo-nazis to make a go if it myself. Dogville 07:56, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

You know, there's no need for Mr.Firbank to be wikilinked every single time he is mentioned. :-) I was thinking the article needed some serious wikification, but after reading it, I don't know what could actually be wikificated (perhaps places like Sudan? Or cleverly introduce links to Gay Pornographic Movies and the like?). Cheers! Raystorm 18:21, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
I think the article would need more reviews from newspapers, and also more criticisms. I know of one criticism in a book but I've not taken down the page, so I don't know whether I should just mention it or not... Zigzig20s 18:52, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

There is a good article on the novel in Richard Dellamora, APOCALYPTIC OVERTURES (1995), 173-191.Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). Montana09 (talk) 19:51, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
