Rainbow Albrecht
Space Vixen Trek Episode 17: Tomorrow the Stars
Smashwords, 2018

“Think of how well things have been going for America over the last two decades. So by 2008, unemployment and poverty surely will exist only in history books. With all the money available for research budgets by then, we’ll probably get technological miracles like antigravity propulsion sooner than expected.” Read more …

Foreword and notes by Leslie S. Klinger

Lovecraft, distinguished only by the subtitle, Beyond Arkham (which sounds like a graphic novel). Read more …

Artist & Autist:
Crowley in the Light of Neville, Part 2

Neville

4,196 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

It is with relief that one turns to Neville’s biography; the bright Sun, soft breezes and blue ocean of the Caribbean replace the dark and soggy little Plymouth Brethren colony.[1]

Neville speaks of his father many times – itself a clue – but here is one of my favorites, and it includes much interesting material for our considerations:

A Word from the Wise Guy:
The Mid-Century Mysticism of Max Stirner, Part II

5,125 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

In my previous essay on Stirner, I suggested that the modern online community, or the Internet itself, would be an excellent example of a “Union of Egoists.” And here we meet with Neville again; for although, like Stirner, his career was on a downslope at his death – for reasons we will soon examine – Read more …

“While, to get greater clarity, I am thinking up a comparison, the founding of Christianity comes unexpectedly into my mind.” — Max Stirner, The Ego and His Own

In recent essays, I’ve looked at the writings of Max Stirner[1] and tried to determine the reason for his increasing relevance in the Internet age, and to the Dissident Right in particular.[2]

Max Stirner:
Marxist, Meme Master, or Mentor?
Part Two

4,274 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

C. Max Stirner: Nineteenth-Century Shitlord

But we can sharpen our focus a bit more; Stirner’s contemporary popularity and perceived relevance may derive from a more specific connection. Since few outside of a small, hate-filled and self-inflated academic clique thinks Marx is “hip,” I’d like to keep the focus on Stirner as a Dissident Right harbinger.

1. Camille Paglia, Provocations: Collected Essays on Art, Feminism, Politics, Sex, and Education (New York: Pantheon, 2018).

Paglia is self-recommending, of course. I was a bit let down, as the subtitle seemed to promise a career-wide retrospective, while this is more like a reunion tour, with emphasis on more recent works. The key essays are a vast survey, “Cults and Cosmic Consciousness: Religious Vision in the American 1960s,” a liberal education in itself; Read more …

Overcomer to the End:
The Return of Brother Stair

Brother Stair

1,905 words

After spending a restless night after reading the latest productions of the Dissident Right, I sought solace, at around 4 AM, in one of my favorite entertainments: radio preachers. I was listening to some Jamaican rabbiting on about how important the support of his Brooklyn ministry was when there was a burst of static, a few moments of fuzziness, and then – suddenly – the unmistakable voice and teachings of Brother Stair!
