Ann Sterzinger
LYFE: Elektra’s Revenge, Book One
Laughing Gallows Books, 2018

She never felt as good as when she got settled inside this little private world. Which wasn’t saying much.[1]

Here’s a new book by Ann Sterzinger, and it’s not what you’d expect.

After all, she does have a hard-won reputation as the Princess of Pessimism, the Duchess of Depression, the Marschallin of Misanthropy and Misery. Read more …

The Alt Right & the Arts

2,386 words

Vig Scholma

Vig Scholma, Furor Teutonicus

The Road to Alt Right Artistry

Since Hillary Clinton’s mention of the Alternative Right in one of her speeches, there have been countless discussions about what the Alt Right is and represents, with everyone and anyone, no matter how inappropriate, suddenly declaring they are part of the Alt Right. I think it is quite easy to define what the Alt Right is: it is the postmodern manifestation of what Julius Evola termed the True Right.  Read more …

The Curse of the High IQ

What’s it like to have nothing to lean on in this bleak world but nihilism?

Fur

irishterrierA long, long time after he had to move out, there was a day when things didn’t seem quite so bad.

That day he awoke in the fifth-floor walk-up he still wasn’t used to. The coffee he made was enough of a treat that he didn’t mind getting out of bed, and his legs felt younger than the rest of him, carrying him down all those stairs and back up more stairs to the train. When the sun flicked in the swiftly moving windows, he noticed he didn’t hate his job much this time. It felt reasonable to be going there. Read more …

BoschGardenSisterSowIt’s not often that a book gives you an idea for dystopian fiction; the last time I decided to write a dystopia, the idea came from a Pulp song. But the reprint of Applied Eugenics by Paul Popenoe and Roswell Hill Johnson — a 1918 pop-science study of exactly what it sounds like — is an unusual volume.  Read more …

Why I’m Scared of Widows & Orphans

“One week they’re reading the children’s illustrated Koran; the next they’ve got a big-boy suicide vest.”

2,122 words

There’s a lot of raspberrying and dismissiveness in the debate over whether to let the wave of “Syrian” “refugees” wash up on U.S. shores. In the partisan sandbox-fights to which we tend to reduce even the most serious questions, it’s easy to forget that in a case like this, there is probably a strong moral argument to be made on either side.  Read more …

Nowicki & Nulick:
Sex, Death, & the Other Death

Valencia-Concept-62,198 words

Here’s a sign that the feces-slinging partisan playpen that is the Internet is getting to you: I caught myself feeling decidedly strange as I made plans to write this tandem review of an essay collection by Andy Nowicki—a devout Catholic—and Valencia, an autobiographical novel by James Nulick, whose protagonist catches AIDS during a gay-sex-and-crack binge.

“Who’s going to want to read about both of them?” said my stupid brain. Read more …

“Spinoza was neither an optimist nor a pessimist. He neither laughed at life nor grieved over it. It is possible that he understood it.” —Edgar Saltus, The Anatomy of Negation

Octave Mirbeau on Voting

1,578 words

mirbeauTranslated by Ann Sterzinger

One thing amazes me prodigiously—I’d say it stuns me: that even during the scientific era in which I write, after umpteen examples, after all the newspaper scandals, there can still exist, in our dear France (as they say in the budget committee), a voter, one single voter—that irrational creature, unnatural and hallucinatory—who consents to interrupting his affairs, his dreams, or his pleasures, to go vote in favor or anything or anyone.  Read more …

There are many things about Chicago of which I am not proud: our glum acceptance of the ten percent sales tax; liberal North Siders’ wheedling attempts to be “down” with the South Side (while avoiding that part of Chiraq out of pure self-preservation); or our continual reelection of machine politicians, Read more …

We’ve seen a lot of weird social justice warrior tricks lately . . . in fact, they seem to have gotten even more aggressively off-putting since Gawker started to tank.
