Geoff Davis books in order

African Story – short story in PEN International New Fiction, 1984 (Quartet). Included Ben Okri, Tom McCarthy, Iain Sinclair. Edited by Peter Ackroyd.

Cow Boils Head – text generator software, 1985 (Micro Arts). Released on national Prestel teletext (a kind of pre-internet for nerdy TV watchers). The software generated versions of the ‘seed’ Cow Boils Head story such as Lizard Inflames World, Snake Boils Hair, Wolf Marinates Lips etc.  The original story was about BSE (mad cow disease) and a vengeful cow. The computer text generator was exhibited and reviewed at the time. It was part of my extensive computer art output from 1984-85 under the name Micro Arts. There’s a website for Micro Arts.

There is also a book about Micro Arts:
