Click here for The Martin Amis Discussion Board


The previous version of The Martin Amis Web featured a lively discussion board. The board's history is just as lively, featuring numerous migrations, symbolic deaths and reincarnations. Just like Amis's fiction, postings can range from the serious to the scandalous and all points in-between. Updated daily, the board benefits from many dedicated posters who do an outstanding job trawling the net for Amisiana. Because this board is not affiliated with the Martin Amis Web, please address all comments and questions to its moderator, John Smith.
