The Guest
lft_img1
For many millennia, heterosexual men on the prowl laboured under the misconception that, in order to convince heterosexual women to sleep with them, it would be necessary to somehow please them.
 
The Secret History Of Rock'n'Roll
lft_img1
In Humboldt’s Gift, Saul Bellow’s narrator Charles Citrine has an enthusiasm for reading an encyclopaedia of religion, claiming that his contemporary America was rife with recurrent types found therein. The indications are that Citrine is thinking especially of the counterculture.
 
Thee Psychick Bible
lft_img1
Not to seem too facile, but there is definitely an analogy to be made between the punk and new wave/industrial groups that appeared at the end of the 1970s and the magical and occult currents which emerged at the same time, such as chaos magic.
 
Hip Pocket Sleaze Files
lft_img1
'He was a saint to a "family" of potheads. And he led them on a freaked-out sex-and-blood bath that picked up where the brutal Sharon Tate killings left off.'
 
The Anthology of Rap
lft_img1
Yale University Press’s assemblage of an Anthology of Rap is the latest milestone in literature’s lethargic admittance of hip hop into its fusty purlieus.
 
Art for Death's Sake
lft_img1
When the Comics Magazine Association of America established the Comics Code in 1954, not only was salacious, suggestive, violent and horrific content banished from comic books but an entire industry was decimated.
 
The Pregnant Widow
lft_img1
In a recent article concerning his terminally ill Best Friend Forever Christopher Hitchens, Martin Amis paraphrased King Lear, saying that every author knows how much "sharper than a serpent's tooth it is" to have "thankless readers."
 
Freedom
lft_img1
Am I alone in wanting to be disappointed by an almost-universally acclaimed 'masterpiece'?
 
The Slap
lft_img1
Christos Tsiolkas' The Slap is a literary novel so viscerally compelling that it deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment.
 
Last Bus To Bray
lft_img1
Entertainment is like a job in a factory, on a production line to help carry it along. Ideas fall off it that never make it to the screen.
 
The Rise and Fall of the Cthulhu Mythos
lft_img1
Very few adherents of the works of HP Lovecraft and writers associated with his august name will not welcome this well-written and thought-provoking volume by the indefatigable ST Joshi.
 
God's Assassins
lft_img1
My sixteen year old brother recently attained the dubious distinction of being the first member of my family (for the last three generations, at least) to be booted out of secondary school.
 
New Gods And The Exploration...
lft_img1
Focuses on the Tree’s Middle Pillar and how its archetypes interact with their demonic counterparts.
 
World of Zines
lft_img1
Round up and reviews of zines. Plus interviews with those people associated with them.
 
Guide to the CounterCulture
lft_img1
This book is more than a guide to culture ‘out there’, it is culture in its own right: unfettered, no-holds-barred dispatches from the underground.
 
I Watched A Wild Hog
lft_img1
The title of this informative book was an actual tabloid headline.
 
Smoke On The Water
lft_img1
It's hard to imagine a world without Deep Purple.
 
Sleazoid Express
lft_img1
There has never been a film book quite like this one.
