After a lengthy gestation period (working title "India Cantos") "Universal" was finally published by Goldmark in 2002 and Canto IV appeared in the October 2002 edition of For Immediate Release. Hillary Davies reviewed it in the October/November 2002 edition of The London Magazine and although I have not read "Universal" myself I liked what I heard in pre-publication recitals.
A review by John Greening appeared in the 2003-03-14 edition of the Times Literary Supplement. The TLS archive is only accessible to subscribers but Aidan sent me a copy of the review and invited me to a party to celebrate his recognition by the "ultimate imprimatur of establishment".
