    «Трансгрессивненько», — подумал я, прочтя некоторое время назад первую часть «Трилогии лорда Хоррора», последнюю книгу, которую запрещали в Англии (всего каких-то четверть века назад, то и се). Трансгрессивность этого текста сама по себе, конечно, противоречива (как противоречива она вообще: там же как бы все время с одной стороны, но с другой стороны), и на первый взгляд авторов заносит за грань общественного договора, но это на первый взгляд: в нашей окололитературной реальности, к примеру, ро «Трансгрессивненько», — подумал я, прочтя некоторое время назад первую часть «Трилогии лорда Хоррора», последнюю книгу, которую запрещали в Англии (всего каких-то четверть века назад, то и се). Трансгрессивность этого текста сама по себе, конечно, противоречива (как противоречива она вообще: там же как бы все время с одной стороны, но с другой стороны), и на первый взгляд авторов заносит за грань общественного договора, но это на первый взгляд: в нашей окололитературной реальности, к примеру, романы про «попаданцев» или какой-нибудь, простигосподи, «крымнаш» гораздо аморальнее, а про бездарную писанину коммерческих авторов я и вовсе молчу: там яд разъедает мозги не так зримо, но гораздо эффективнее. В общем, я не знаю, насколько больным уебком нужно быть, чтобы считать эту книжку, например, антисемитской. В первую очередь это сатира на кооптацию мифа об антифашистском сопротивлении правыми силами Англии в конце ХХ века (ну и довольно любопытный заход на историю искусства модернизма по пути). Во вторую очередь — это яростный выпад против контр-памяти (которую не стоит путать с псевдо-памятью — она на сотню шагов дальше). Заменить Англию на Россию — и картина становится не просто узнаваемой, а прямо-таки яро очевидной. Так что книжка весьма своевременна, и крайне любопытно будет наблюдать за реакцией наших прекрасных читателей (я, например, знаю трех, которые на самом деле поймут, о чем там речь). Меж тем, продолжаем наши досуги, отступать некуда — позади, блядь, сплошные панфиловцы.

    The Unreprinted On December 29th of 2020, British author, artist, and editor David Britton passed away. Along with fellow author Michael Butterworth, he was one of the founders of the controversial publisher Savoy Books in 1976.

Along with fellow author Michael Butterworth, he was one of the founders of the controversial publisher Savoy Books in 1976. Both authors and the publishing house were heavily steeped in the British New Wave of science fiction. The New Wave was a movement that emphasized introspection, literary experimentation, and a rejection of the perceived conservatism of pulp science fiction. It can be seen as a precursor to later speculative fiction movements like cyberpunk and even bizarro. Savoy earned the eternal scorn of the local police for publishing books that the establishment of Britain labeled as obscene, resulting in multiple raids on the publisher and earning Britton a short prison sentence. This came to a head in 1989 when Savoy published Britton’s first novel, Lord Horror. The novel was almost immediately seized, banned, and Britton sent to prison yet again. The ban was eventually lifted in 1992, making it the final book to be banned under law in the UK. However, the damage was done and many copies were destroyed by the police, making the book very rare. Savoy has chosen not to reprint it since.

    Plagiarism - strained, frustrated & condescension comes to mind when reading this book, not really interesting, nothing new to say. Inordinate graphic writing substitutes for originality - the book contradicts as if the author truly believed his bleak vision in what he writes regarding the human race as he obviously expects the reader to he would not of written it and instead just killed himself but he didn't and carries on writing and there is it's downfall it is pointless, egotistical, boring Plagiarism - strained, frustrated & condescension comes to mind when reading this book, not really interesting, nothing new to say.

    I stopped reading Lord Horror on page 136 because it was eating holes in my Kirlian aura.

    Bizarre and indebted to Burroughs, Lord Horror is one that's been on my list for nearly 20 years, until I chanced upon a scan of this outrageously rare book. Some of the sections are trying, frustrating even. And the wanton cruelty isn't hype - but then again that's the point, isn't it?
