bsr17_cover

Yes, Virginia, Black Scat Review does DADA FORGERY. But is it anti-art?

You be the judge.

#17 is loaded with incendiary art & texts by Captain Anonymous, David Moscovich, Tristan Tzara, Anna Keeler, Christy Sheffield Sanford, Karl Waldmann, Ruth Crossman,  Norman Conquest, Paulo Brito, Harry McCullagh, Michael Leigh, Gregory Autry Wallace, Eîlot Tuerie, Terri Lloyd, Doug Skinner, and Joseph Heathcott.

This is the last issue of BSR and a fitting finale it is. Don’t miss this one, folks, it’s destined to wind up a collector’s item on the ash heap of art history.

“Pure Lust”—the issue they wouldn’t let you see!

contents_BSR14

Upon publication, BLACK SCAT REVIEW #14 quickly sold ten copies on Amazon and then was suddenly blocked from sale — “suppressed” by the printer without explanation. We raised holy hell but all that CreateSpace  (Amazon’s  printer) would tell us was that the issue “violated their policy.”  So what did we do?

We found another printer.

Now you can see what all the fuss was about. The “Pure Lust” issue  features art, fiction, and poetry by Tosh Berman, Tom Bussmann, Theodore Carter, Giada Cattaneo, Elna Holst, Monika Mori, Derek Pell, Eugene Schacht, Sybil Shwarzenberg, Mercie Pedro e Silva, Yuriy Tarnawsky, Mylene Viger, Tom Whalen, and Elizabeth Yoo.

Fuck censorship.

Important Notice from the Publisher

BLACK SCAT REVIEW #14 — The “Pure Lust” Issue  — was originally released on March 9, 2016 and was available for sale in the United States and Europe on Amazon. That is, until March 25 when – without warning or explanation – the printer, Createspace (owned by Amazon), blocked sales of the issue and listed it as “suppressed.”

On Amazon’s sales page the “buy now” button was removed and the issue listed as “Out of Print—Limited Availability.” Adding to the absurdity, a preview of the suppressed issue’s contents remained visible via Amazon’s “Look inside” feature.

Despite repeated attempts by the publisher to ascertain the reason behind this unwarranted act of censorship, Createspace has not responded. Customers who attempted to purchase the issue complained to Amazon directly, yet received no satisfactory response. One customer who managed to order a copy before the purchase button was removed was informed by a sales representative: “…I am personally following this issue. Once we get more information, I’ll write back and let you know… In an effort to compensate for this delay, I’ve upgraded the shipping method for this order to One-day shipping, at no extra charge.”

It is still not clear if the magazine will, in fact, ever be shipped.

new coverToday, using an alternative printer (MagCloud), we’re releasing the complete and unexpurgated issue. Only modifications to formatting and the cover’s color have been made. The ISBN & barcode for the original release have been removed.

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.

If you’ve missed any back issues of BSR. copies are available here.

Good Luck!
