The Day The Empire Fell by Vincent Scotti Eirene
Vincent Scotti Eirené is a consummate storyteller. In this book he offers poetic vignettes about his family and his lifelong journey into nonviolent peacemaking. Along the way he takes us across the country, from Pittsburgh to Chicago, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, California, Nevada, the White House, New Orleans, Atlanta, and even beyond, to Fallujah and Baghdad. We meet an assortment of colorful characters, people like Grandma Molly, Phillip Berrigan, Hungry Bear, Uncle Joe, Black Panther Malik Rahim, Martin Sheen, judges, lawyers, activists and others. Stitched together, the stories serve as a striking miniature of our age. They form a snapshot of a time in American history, flashes of what Jack Kerouac did for an earlier era with his book On the Road.
Available for $8.00 OUT OF PRINT. Expanded edition coming October, 2011
The Final Incident by Matt Stroud, Jesse Hicks, Joseph L. Flatley (editors)
Deek Magazine lived for a few years in the midst of the “roaring 2000’s.” This was a tumultuous decade, even for sleepy Pittsburgh. An unnecessary war, an imploding worldwide economy, disasters both natural and man-made, and the return of that early-80s phenomenon “punk-funk” were on everybody’s mind. Each issue of Deek Magazine revolved around a specific “incident.” War, Madness, Sex and The Future were among the topics explored, dissected and just plain ridiculed. This anthology includes interviews with Robert Anton Wilson, RU Sirius, Tera Patrick and original stories, essays and journalism.
Available for $12.00: here.
Paceless, tasteless, graceless… marooned on a point of no intellectual return. (From the TIME Magazine review of Norman Mailer’s Barbary Shore.)
Barbary Shore is a term that refers to the seamy side of town, the areas that are somewhat edgy, somewhat dangerous — still somewhat interesting, for that matter. The places where you find the marginalized, the thrill seekers, the outsiders. These are the voices of the Barbary Shore Publishing Company.
In a world where literature is considered irrelevant, and where the publishing industry is devoted to celebrity cookbooks and TV talk show “book clubs,” we have the perfect opportunity to strip literature down to its essence… and rediscover it, free of the rules of commerce or academia.
Barbary Shore publications are like telegrams from a distant battlefield. Produced quickly and cheaply, they are meant to convey stories, ideas and information on an informal, personal basis.
