- "Speaking of which I was just reading how Balzac had a breakthrough when writing Pere Goriot and realised he could link one book to another through the same characters. I had almost exactly the same sense of things when I was beginning A Cure for Cancer and realised it was really another Jerry Cornelius story, which was how I began seriously linking the various stories and sequences into one, using the same characters to carry a theme from one book to another."
- "Multiverse was first proposed in Blood Red Game (aka The Sundered Worlds) in Science Fiction Adventures in, I think, 1962. I had the good luck to make a number of predictions or guesses in that book which later proved to have some scientific basis! Oppenheimer, in my view, was more an apocalyptic poet than a regular physicist and these days poetry and physics often seem to intersect. Making poetic images literal is to some extent what science fiction -- or the kind I like anway -- does."
