Waiting for Gollum

Ohio Impromptu

Remember The Valve's claim that "High Modernism is SF" and, what's more, "Proust's Recherche ... whatever critics have said about it, is actually a time-travel story deeply indebted to Wells's Time Machine"?

Well, I had a good chuckle at the time, but now disturbing new evidence has emerged of Beckett's secret debt to the same author.
