Nonsense Rules!

MORE NONSENSE

One of the most popular issues of BLACK SCAT REVIEW was the special “Utter Nonsense” double issue (#9/10).  Readers will be happy to hear that we’ve decided to publish a sequel next year — “More Utter Nonsense”  — deadline to be announced. The lovely cover was done by a talented young Italian artist, Giada Cattaneo.

We think “More Utter Nonsense” is especially fitting since 2016 is an election year. Stay tuned for more details.

ZOMBIEREADER

The cartoonist Jason Little spotted a man reading THE ZOMBIE OF GREAT PERU in the subway at the Carroll Street stop, in Brooklyn.

A zombie rises from the grave of French literature to stalk the earth once more! This bizarre novel – written in 1697 – marks the first mention of the word “zombie” in world literature. It is a wicked tale of lascivious lust and lunatic desires, a strange concoction of prose and verse, set in the sexual and racial hothouse of colonial Guadeloupe. Our narrator has his eye on the beautiful Creole Countess, who goes barefoot and serves her guests tadpoles. When she offers him sex in exchange for magical powers, he tricks her into thinking she’s an invisible zombie; slapstick, humiliation, and confusion follow. Includes a preface by the avant-garde magus: Guillaume Apollinaire. FIRST PUBLICATION IN ENGLISH!
