How Predictive Text Plays Havoc with British History
This is Britain rewritten in predictive text. One man and his mobile phone gremlin take on the people, institutions and events that have shaped this country, autocorrecting as they go and uncovering some shocking home truths. So let’s honour our majestic Queer Vicar, the Right Honourable Primary Monster, the National Death Device, and give thanks for that Bikini Inversion*; this is an extensive love letter (or rather text message) to this land we call home.

Hugh Kellett studied languages at Oxford and has been playing around with words in London advertising agencies most of his life. Starting his career at an American multi-national in London, he has been involved with TV, press, radio, poster and social media campaigns in many sectors from beer to beauty, food to financial, technology to travel, and pretty much everything in between. He has dealt with the foibles of government ministers and celebrity hairdressers in the UK, and spun the fables of Wall Street bankers and detergent salesmen in the US, representing them all in the noble art of myth making and marketing manipulation, most recently at the London offices of the international giant Publicis, where he survived to an exceedingly ripe old age.
Changes to the way we communicate with each other, the increasing role of technology in driving those changes and the startling unforeseen side effects of that technology, all struck him as worthy of the deep and serious study you have before you.
The Glitzch series is his first foray into writing books.
