Spring was a great time for LBC. The Bay Area bookfair was great and the NYC bookfair was a great deal of fun. We even had a quick trip up to Olympia! We watched 10,000 copies ofAfter the Fall pass into the hands of people who found spectacular use for it. We also watched the runs of several of our exclusive titles sell out.
We are working on a couple new projects for the medium term and a lot more for the long term. This includes a couple new anti political publications, a few historical board games, and new titles all over the map. We look forward to hearing from you and if you have a sympathetic project, working with you.Email us.
If you haven’t been paying attention to Insurgent Summer… Well you should. We are reading the incredible Letters of Insurgents online and in groups and would love the company.
Letters of Insurgents (nearly out of print)
New to LBC
That last few months have been somewhat quiet but for a few new titles…
Origins: A John Zerzan Reader
This is a collection of the entirety of John Zerzan’sOrigin series of essays. These essays are, arguably, the most original and challenging of John’s writing and are well worth a collection of their own. They were drawn from most of his books (Elements of Refusal, Future Primative) and from Green Anarchy magazine.
Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed – double issue!
The most controversial anarchist magazine in North America has released a double issue (with a new format and printing done by the excellent Eberhardt Press)! This issue contains a reprint from Nihilist Communism (a book we carry), an attack on anti-primitivism, and a lengthy critique of Max Cafard’s book on Stirner
Fire to the Prisons #9
This is a large issue of this Insurrectionary publication coming in at a heavy 120 pages. It covers a lot of territory from a chronology of prisoner resistance, Greece, Haiti, Chile, to extensive resistance reporting. There is a defense of their “For Nothing, Against Everything” provocation and the possible announcement that the publication schedule might slow down.
For Wildness and Anarchy – by Kevin Tucker
This new collection of essays by Kevin Tucker brings together the last ten years and allows a reader who only knows about Tucker from hearsay and controversy to make up their own mind. Tucker is primarily interested in the implications behind domestication as the consequence of civilization and offers a psychological, spiritual, and anthropological approach that contrast nicely to the philosophical approach of other well known anarcho-primitivist writers.
Upcoming to LBC – Four new periodals
By the end of summer you will see these new publications carried by Little Black Cart. You will be hard pressed to find them anywhere else. Listed in order of their arrival (all upcoming).
This is not a publication for everybody but if you are interested in some of the best anti-statist Marxist analysis of the current condition (and topics such as contradiction, communisation, housing& debt, and–of course–crisis), this is it. The beautiful journal format is the perfect way to sit down and read something dense.
Against Sleep and Nightmare #8
This long running post-situationist magazine comes out with an issue rarely, so this is a time for celebration! This issue concerns some of ASAN’s classic topics (crisis, critique of other anti-political folk, economics) and includes some new ones too (religion& spirituality).
Letters Journal #4
This is a fantastic new anti-political communist journal from the Midwest. We enjoyed the provocations from issue #3 (particularly those engaged with the stylism of the RNC) and look forward to issue #4. This issue includes a literary supplement and remains in journal format.
The Anvil #1
Review essays on newsprint. Contestation. Transgression. Engagement.
Anarchy Works – Peter Gelderloos takes real examples to demonstrate that Anarchism is not just an idea but a working way that people have lived, and continue to live.
This is not a love story – Armed Struggle vs Patriarchy.
If an Agent Knocks – How do you prepare for the worst?
Kerbloom #83 – Our favorite perzine.
Willful Disobedience – The collected writings of Wolfi Landstreicher!!!
Nihilist Communism – by Monsieur Dupont.
We look forward to seeing our friends in Seattle in August and Minneapolis in September!!!
