Very strange book about people occupying the fringes of society, holding views, conducting practices that would make most of us squirm. But sometimes you have to turn the rock over and find out what lies beneath... ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0922915059, Paperback)

For years I've been a little leery of this book. First published in 1987, this anthology of doomster essays has become a fixture on the bookshelves of every Tom, Pierced Dick, and Harry. After finally reading it, I have to admit that my prejudice against those who think that being cool means reading lots of ReSearch magazines kept me away from what is actually a fascinating volume, wherein the most absurd, inexcusable positions are defended with calm intelligence and witty rationality. With essays ranging from the sexual liberation of necrophiliacs to strong cases against art and agriculture, editor Adam Parfrey's collection is one that Tristan Tzara would enjoy, if he were to rise from his mouldy grave in search of good bathroom reading.
