Bug Jack Barron

Norman Spinrad

The book was serialised in the British New Wave science fiction magazine New Worlds during Michael Moorcock\\\\\\\’s editorship. Its explicit language and cynical attitude toward politicians, as well as the fact that the magazine was partially funded by the British Arts Council, angered British Members of Parliament. Jennie Lee, Baroness Lee of Asheridge, then head of the Arts Council, successfully defended the book. Later, it was banned by W. H. Smith, a major British chain of bookstores. Feminist typesetters at New Worlds rejected the story as sexist. – Wikipedia.
