Does anyone have any clues as to what happened with Clive's website at Welcomestranger.com?
 
I used to really enjoy watching the interviews on the site, but it's been "off the air temporarily" for a long time now.

The Word interview with CJ states that 'his personal multi-media website has just launched, featuring interviews shot in his own living room, among the subjects Julian Barnes, Martin Amis and Ian McEwan www.clivejames.com'.  As far as I can see, though, this is currently just a single page announcing the prospect of such a multi-media project (it announces a possible launch date of April, which I presume didn't happen, unless it means next April...).  But it does give an explanation of what happened to the Welcome Stranger site, and it certainly offers an intriguing prospect for the future.

Thanks for that Mike.  At least I now know why the site stopped functioning, which was the mystery before.

A word of warning.  
 
I registered on the welcomestranger.com site some time ago because I wanted to know when Clive's website would be back in business.  I was surprised and annoyed to find that I then received unsolicited e-mails from another website that appeared to be aimed as Aussies in London.
 
Repeated requests to remove my e-mail address from their database were ignored.  I thought of complaining to Clive via Midnight Voices e-mail, but in the end changed my e-mail address to escape their (and much other) spam.

Must say I'm none too impressed by young Larcey's work for Clive's Websites -- two of them apparently abandoned for months, and now the story of the aussieinlondon mailing list spam. Hope Clive's not paying him too much -- we've done better for free...

I'll just point out that if anyone has been seriously inconvenienced by this, a whois lookup using a service like allwhois.com reveals a London address and telephone number (in the old 0171 format, so it may not be current) plus an email address.

Clive's new Website

Clive has relaunched his multimedia Website at www.clivejames.com. A few technical peculiarities (you might have to use MSIE on a PC to see everything, and there are some punctuation errors), but the site carries a good stash of new articles, poems and lectures, plus streamed audio of Clive's dialogues with Peter Porter, and what appears to be the full set of his "Talking in the Library" video interviews.

What, no mention of his songwriting?  Shocked
 
Couldn't Clive be persuaded to at least add a link to Smash Flops? Although I didn't see a links section anywhere...
 
Cheers

I had a chance for a quick look the other day, and read an article on Shakespeare and one on the Bali bombing. I'll get back to it and read more soon.
 
Through lack of choice we are still on (slow) dial-up, so I won't risk the interviews yet, but I did enjoy the articles. A chance for me to keep partly up to date until some of these things appear in books.
