Jeff Noon: a life in writing

" So, in 1993, began Jeff Noon's first novel, Vurt. It was something the like of which had never been seen before, and it established Noon – then a struggling 35-year-old playwright earning rent by working in the Deansgate branch of Waterstones and writing at night – as a figure of major promise in British science fiction. Twenty years on, Vurt is being republished in an anniversary edition with three new stories, but the Noon who wrote it is, if not a forgotten figure, then one who never quite achieved the recognition that seemed his inevitable due. The path has not been smooth. He had difficulties with drink and panic attacks. His work ploughed off in an experimental direction that made him a hard sell to mainstream SF fans.

The Code Book. When I wrote my first book, Fermat’s Last Theorem, I made a passing reference to the mathematics of cryptography.

The Code Book

Although I did not know it at the time, this was the start of a major interest in the history and science of codes and code breaking, which has resulted in a 400-page book on the subject, an adaptation of the book for teenagers, a 5-part TV series, numerous talks and lectures, the purchase of an Enigma cipher machine and the development of an interactive crypto CD-ROM. You can find information about TV series and the free CD-ROM version of the book (and lots more) in the Cryptography section of the site. In this section, however, you will find details about my book on cryptography (The Code Book). I have not included any material about the teenage version of The Code Book, but you can find it at Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.

On Friday I appeared before an audience of four, but did I give them the shortened version? No, they got a full hour’s worth of fun. I’m not one of those authors who turns up forty minutes late for their audience (I won’t mention names here […] London’s Most Sinister Street When I lived in Eze-Sur-Mer on the Cote D’Azur, there was a beautiful old 1920s hotel near me on Pointe De Cabuel (you can see it here from above on Google Maps) that had been bought by a Russian oligarch as a private residence. Some Authors Are Dead But Still Writing Remember Virginia Andrews? Inside The Language Maze There’s been a bit of controversy lately about videogames – this time not about levels of violence, but about the rise of characters with differing ethnicity, sexuality and faith – you know, characters who reflect real life.
