It has been brought to my attention that – beyond the grab of google – the story Salustrade has led to a form of religion or cult in certain sections of the world … now growing. I have checked and I am sure that this is the first time the effect of this story has been mentioned on the internet. I take full responsibility as I wrote Salustrade. It was mentioned to me today inadvertently by one of the so-called Salustraders – also known, apparently by subterfuge, as Overspacers – during a Nemonymous book transaction with me.
I can’t expect anyone to believe this without further evidence (currently being sought). But, meanwhile, I can easily imagine the nature of something like ‘Salustrade’ evolving such a following. From memory, it was something that seemed to write itself back in the early 1990s. And it was published in a mass market book in 1994.
