2. Black Ice Books

Black Ice Books is a new alternative trade paperback series that will introduce readers to the latest wave of dissident American writers. Breaking out of the bonds of mainstream writing, the voices published here are subversive, challenging and provocative. The first four books include:

Avant-Pop: Fiction for a Daydream Nation

Edited by Larry McCaffery, this book is an assemblage of innovative fiction, comic book art, unique graphics and various other unclassifiable texts by writers like Samuel Delany, Mark Leyner, William Vollmann, Kathy Acker, Eurdice, Stephen Wright, Derek Pell, Harold Jaffe, Tim Ferret, Ricardo Cortez Cruz and many others.

“One of the least cautious, nerviest editors going, Larry McCaffery is the No-Care Bear of American Letters.”

— William Gibson.

“A clusterbomb of crazy fiction, from a generation too sane to repeat yesterday’s lies.”

— Tom Robbins

New Noir

Stories by John Shirley

John Shirley bases his stories on his personal experience of extreme people and extreme mental states, and on his struggle with the seduction of drugs, crime, prostitution and violence.

“John Shirley is an adventurer, returning from dark and troubled regions with visionary tales to tell.”

— Clive Barker

The Kafka Chronicles

a novel by Mark Amerika

The Kafka Chronicles is an adventure into the psyche of an ultracontemporary twentysomething guerilla artist who is lost in an underworld of drugs and mental terrorism, where he encounters an unusual cast of angry yet sensual characters

“Mr Amerika—if indeed that is his name—has achieved a unique beauty in his artful marriage of Blake’s lyricism and the iron- in-the-soul of Celine. Are we taking a new and hard-hitting Antonin Artaud? Absolutely. And much more.”

—Terry Southern

Revelation Countdown

by Cris Mazza

Stories that project onto the open road not the nirvana of personal freedom but rather a type of freedom more resembling loss of control.

“Talent jumps off her like an overcharge of electricity.”

—LA Times
