“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.

Good Nudes!

MOO17

We’re celebrating the release of MOO NUDES in this full color, limited Black Scat Classic Interim Edition.

MOO-NUDES

This provocative collection of nude studies by Austrian painter Monika Mori—known internationally as “Moo”—was created with mixed media on stretched canvas and watercolors. Playful, moody, seductive, and aloof, the figures are animated by the dazzling colors of Ms. Mori’s palette, which bring to life these abstract forms. Moo Nudes is a slyly erotic celebration of the female body.

Monika Mori

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Monika Mori (known internationally as the artist MOO) was born in 1960 in Moedling, Austria, and studied Fine Art with Prof. Anneliese Beschorner. She amplified her scope as an artist by formal training and workshops in Spain, Germany and Florida. Since 2008, her work has been exhibited worldwide and is included in major and private collections.

In 2012, Black Scat Books published a collection of her work titled Shattered Rainbow. This volume represents her interaction with materials and colors in varied techniques. Studies of the female body are applied in mixed media technique on canvas with soft pastels, acrylics and oil. Her powerful watercolor paintings on artist
paper celebrate erotic femininity and the eternal enigma of women.

Ms. Mori currently lives in Maria Enzersdorf, Austria.

In the wings, some special things (third edition)…

Scat addicts (of which I’m one) will get their fix and kicks in the coming months. What would winter be without a stack of Scat on the bedside table? Bleak indeed. So cheer up & gear up… good reading is on the way.

GODEAU_thumb

BIRD-thumb

December, we raise the curtain on the Théâtre de l’Absurdea  limited edition of a hilarious little Patchenesque drama: ‘S A BIRD by Eckhard Gerdes. No spitting in the balcony.
