Read full description of the books:
Derek Raymond is best known for his five noir crime Factory Novels series written in the 1980s, however before writing those novels, and around two decades earlier, he’d written as Robin Cook, his birth name, in the 1960s, before having to leave the UK for mainland Europe for a protracted period. This relocation reputedly linked to his criminal activities during that era.
Derek Raymond was born Robert William Arthur “Robin” Cook in 1931 and he died in London in 1994. He was the son of a textile magnate who dropped out of Eton, the famously expensive and elitist British public school, aged 16, and turned his back on his privileged background. After a period travelling and living in the US and Spain, he returned home to London and was variously employed as a pornographer, organiser of illegal gambling, money launderer, pig-slaughterer and minicab driver, who preferred to associate with criminals and con men.
Robin Cook apparently began his literary career writing pornography, but soon turned his attention to a series of darkly comic novels loosely based on his own experiences. 'The Crust on Its Uppers' (1962), was his first published work. Involved in various petty schemes, from counterfeiting to fencing stolen goods, our nameless narrator presents a colourful tale of criminality meeting aristocrats which presciently presages the collision between gangsters, pop stars and toffs which, in part, came to characterise Swinging London a few years later.
Bombe Surprise was Robin Cook's second novel, published in 1963, and it's a satire about an authoritarian fascist political party, Britain Strong Britain Free. It's mile a minute stuff, wholly implausible, sporadically amusing, and increasingly incoherent. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone other than Derek Raymond/Robin Cook completists.
