Sister Carrie Has Arrived!

“When Sara White boarded the afternoon train for Chicago, her total outfit consisted of the clothes she was wearing, a small blue suitcase, a cheap imitation alligator-skin satchel, a lunch in a paper box, and a yellow leather snap purse. Now she stood stark naked in front of twenty other spellbound young women, and two men fully conscious.”

Theodore Dreiser meets the Marquis de Sade (and other pornographic writers) in Tom Bussmann’s innovative  new novel. Here the author seamlessly melds texts to form a compelling narrative of, among other things, Victorian lust.

Bussmann’s wicked little novel has several tricks up its sleeve. Using Dreiser as narrator, his tale steers a candid autobiography into the surreal fast lane—where explicit hyperbole  is common in forbidden Victorian lit. Yet the story also manages to hint at the author’s personal reading habits and reveals an abiding fascination with St. Louis and the American west.

Sister Carrie Came is an incendiary work  of erotic semiotics.

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.

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!

These hot new releases are ideal summer reading. Alain Arias-Misson‘s experimental novel COMIC BOOK subverts the comic book formula and turns it inside-out. Indeed, the sex & violence spins off the page and into your head—right where it belongs. Talk about fun!

THE DOUG SKINNER DOSSIER is a biblical picnic—complete with ants in your pants. This lavish (imitation leather) compendium is loaded with black humor, absurdism, and sheer nonsense—a delightful divertissement for the beach or hammock.

Love at First Smite

Love knows no virtue, no profit; it loves and forgives and suffers everything, because it must

Originally published in 1870, the notorious novel Venus in Furs quickly became a landmark work of erotic literature. Written by the Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (who inspired Krafft-Ebing to coin the term masochism), the book’s themes of female dominance and sadomasochism are legendary. This compact new edition features stunning collage illustrations by French artist Nelly Sanchez.

The Zombie lurches forward, seeking readers as its prey!

z1

There is a veritable army of zombie books out there but nothing remotely like this one. This obscure novel—a masterpiece of avant-garde weirdness—was published in France in 1697. It was written by one Pierre-Corneille Blessebois, “the Casanova of the 17th century,” as an act of literary revenge. It is not simply vengeful, but it’s the first work in world literature to use the word “zombie” and stands as an early example of bizarre black humor. This outrageous relic—unearthed & translated from the French by the incomparable Doug Skinner—is the novel’s first appearance in English and features a preface by the great Guillaume Apollinaire.
