THE MANCUNIAN POLYMATH John Anthony Burgess Wilson (1917-1993) had what might be best described as a reluctant relationship with science ﬁction. Famed as the author of one of the most famous dys-topias of 20th century literature, A Clockwork Orange, Burgess, who penned some 32 other novels as well as reams of non-ﬁction and musical compositions, found the notoriety of his most infamous work restricting, and regularly dismissed it as a jeu d’esprit which overshadowed his other achievements.
