''..two genuine sf novels followed: 1985 (1978), which is divided into a competent essay on Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) and a blustering sf tale set in a 1985 dominated by Arabs and left-wing unions; and The End of the World News: An Entertainment (1982), again a book divided but this time in three, with a short life of Sigmund Freud jostling a Broadway musical (without the music) about Leon Trotsky, both tales being filmed and viewed long afterwards aboard a Spaceship which - in the third segment of the main narrative - has escaped the End of the World just before a wandering planet strikes the rest of us dead'' (Maxim Jakubowski & John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
