I just finished reading this wonderful book. It is a collection of articles republished from Chad Hensley's ESOTERRA zine. The zine ran for 9 official issues spanning nearly a decade. During that time, a wealth of articles, essays and interviews were accumulated on extreme culture areas centered generally in music, art, the occult and mega-weirdos. Kind of like a more "pop" culture take on Adam Parfrey's Apocalypse Culture, if you will. As happens, these original issues have basically vanished as far as the public at large is concerned. (Which is incidentally inevitable, the public at large will not be interested in this book) But for the rest of us it is exciting that Hensley finally curated a modest collection of material from the magazine for this Creation Books publication.

Marilyn Manson

Carlos Schwabe's Frightening, Pointing Women

Carlos Schwabe is one of the all time greats, but the bulk of his work isn't much like this very curious, eerie-as-hell series of cloaked, anguished women. They suggest that the viewer them self is complicit in some kind of horror.
