[4.3.06][Andrew Gallix] PULP FICTION FOR THE GRAND THEFT AUTO GENERATION Randolph Carter presents Johnny Pulp: "The legendary Johnny Pulp is about to publish eleven books simultaneously as a way of seriously disfiguring the usual way an 'author' is produced by his/her books. It's a kind of industrial strength approach to work and gets to the kind of thing the genius poet Jeremy Reed says here on 3:AM about writer's block: if you're a writer, how can you not write and write and write? Well whatever, the books are all ship shape and roaring to go except that they're being printed in Pakistan and there's a hold-up. The officials there are worrying that this project could be some counterblast to the Danish cartoon crisis and so they're holding them back. What's Johnny to do? Well, as this particular battle gets fought readers in the UK are just going to have to wait before they get their mits on these avant-pulp, psychogeographic bombs. It's all a bit delicate as the negotiations continue apace, but this is real cutting-edge literature and it's causing a storm. Watch this space.
If you're interested in buying a copy of Cancer Boy (cover pictured), please shoot us an email. Here's the pitch:
"A wired and damaged dreamload of loneliness and desire. A sick book about sick vampires, politics and deviant sensuality in a creepy landscape of madness and vision. A boy lives in a house on a beach as his mother slowly dies of a cancerous disease that mysteriously corrupts and taints everything in the boy's world". [permalink]
