    While I think Alan Cumming is a great actor, this interview didn't reveal much about his readership. Maybe a more casual famous reader is just a bit of a let down after Dan Stevens talking about his rather intense and frankly quite inspiring readership in the previous issue. And even though I think I'll never read The Purple Cloud, the articles about and around it were brilliant and fascinating. Note to self: must subscribe to this great magazine.

    Šoreiz viena zvaigzne nost par Alana Kamminga augstprātību. Otrā daļa - saistoši par Ziemeļiem, vulkāniem un purpuru. Pašu The Purple Cloud diez vai lasīšu, pietiek ar ģeniālo Last Man on Earth, tas gana labi parāda cilvēku glancētās un sapuvušās puses, pie tam ļoooooti smieklīgi.

    The first half: interview with Allan Cumming was alright, but I enjoyed specifically the second half of the magazine, which revolves around the book The Purple Cloud by M. P. Shiel -- which I did not read actually, since I'm not a big fan of dystopian novel, even though it's a classic. But the articles surrounding it were fascinating: on apocalypse, volcanoes, and atomic bomb just to name a few.

    Issue 4: contains an interview with Alan Cummings & a series of essays riffing on a Victorian sci fi novel about the last man on earth. The most unnerving one being about the effects on the earth if a nuclear bomb with a cobalt core exploded (best not to ask)...

    Intervija bija ok, bet šoreiz visvairāk patika raksti, kas saistījās ar "The Purple Cloud".
