I finally finished this book by Iain Sinclair. I’ve read several non-fiction books by Sinclair and enjoyed them very much, This was fiction of the most surrealistic kind. Non-sentences, short phrases, rarely a complete sentence. It really was quite difficult to read. I found myself reading four or five pages at a time before putting the book aside. But buried in all of this was a plot, a story, several stories, in fact. Most interesting to me was Sileen’s search for a manuscript, an unpublished work by William Hope Hodgson, a sequel to The House on the Borderland. Also somewhat entertaining was a brief scene in which a science fiction convention was the focus. I once attended many such. I hope I was not a model for any of these characters.
I had read The House on the Borderland once and it probably was equally dense and difficult to read as Radon Daughters. I won’t recommend this book. I merely wanted to make a record that I had eventually come to the end of its 458 pages.
