Jonathan Lyon is a young UK writer and singer who lives in a coldwater flat in Berlin, which probably explains his predilection for draping himself in fur. He writes strange, wonderful stories about things which I still don’t understand, but in a way that makes me want him to write more of it. Jonathan also sings in an electronic band called Agon. I don’t understand the band but I want them to do more of whatever it is they’re doing. We decided to give Johnathan Lyon the runner-up prize because of his votes and because of the precision of how he does what he does, and because of the promise that we see in this talented young writer.
