NERRRRRRRRD! vol. 64: the 2017 FBI Watch List Book Club Recommendations
ANSWER ME! All Four Issues by Jim and Debbie Goad
before he became seemingly content with catering to easily sated aging shitlords who think reading Pat Buchanan books in Craft Bars constitutes a subversive act, Goad's writing was sharp, deadly, and right in the thick of the disagreeable maelstroms that became victimized by the wrath of his vicious intellect and scathing literacy. 25 years later and there are few that can match the intensity of this omnibus.
GAG by Grant Maierhofer
a sequence of rotting doors / mild suburban hell / rooms lorded over by men of obscenity / a blighted novella /sister book to PX138 3100-2686 User’s Manual / a little limb, little dog / bodies trapped in basements / leather, plastic, film / pile of burnt manuscripts / Antonin Artaud’s body writhing on an asylum floor / the outside world of light and terrors /
Giving Godhead by Dylan Krieger
fearless and aggressive... winking and playful...
The Incest Diary by Anonymous
a real-life Secret Diary of Laura Palmer
Kiddiepunk Collected 201-2015
featuring new works by Dennis Cooper, Thomas Moore, Peter Sotos, and others.
Kill All Normies by Angela Nagle
Nagle does the lord's work here; producing a dense guide to the multiplying labyrinth of viral psychosis that has devoured internet discourse and now has its sights set on binge-eating at the adult's table.
LiarTown: The First Four Years by Sean Tejaratchi
funniest book i've read all year. FFO Vernon Chatman, Scarfolk.
Mountainhead by New Juche
Juche became my new favorite writer almost instantly, insuring that position here with this bodily fluid grimed travelogue.
Paperbacks from Hell by Grady Hendrix
lovingly recreates the feeling i had when i was around six or seven and my mother would be combing the book aisle at Caldor, not realizing that my brain was becoming home to the images that lept from the utterly bizarre horror novel covers of that time period.
Slash of the Titans: The Road to Freddy vs. Jason by Dustin McNeill
proof that, more often than not, the journey is infinitely more fascinating and rich than the destination, McNeill compiles a dossier of the false starts that handicapped the inevitable meeting of the 1980s most recognizable icons, providing the reader a glimpse of what the film might've been had money and fanboys not interceded.
