Jason Louv Queen ValentineQUEEN VALENTINE (ULTRACULTURE PRESS, 2011)

From Amazon: New York has some strange neighborhoods. There’s the Upper West Side, the Lower East Side and… the Other Side. That’s where the Sidhe live-a race of mythological creatures that have dwelled just under mankind’s nose for millennia, created and kept alive by the dream energy of humans. There’s good ones (Seelie) and bad ones (Unseelie), and they get along fine just as long as they stay hidden from mankind. It’s a peaceful situation that has lasted since the days of the foundation of America. That peaceful situation is about to be broken.

When a young designer stumbles into the Other Side, she becomes implicated in a secret war to merge the human and Sidhe worlds… and falls in love with a Changeling cop who seems to be everything she wants in a man. If the warring worlds let them be together, that is.

“Like Alice in Wonderland if Lewis Carroll had overdosed on the opposite of Prozac. A twisted, dark, comical take on the origins of our hopes, dreams and nightmares.” – Marty Beckerman, author of The Heming Way

“A producer and director of text… a bloody f***ing genius.” – Howard Bloom, author of The Lucifer Principle

 

I’ve masterminded and edited the following three tomes of consciousness-expanding infamy:

Thee Psychick Bible

THEE PSYCHICK BIBLE (FERAL HOUSE, 2010)

From the publisher: Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY) will be remembered for its crucial influence on youth culture throughout the 1980s, popularizing tattooing, body piercing, “acid house” raves, and other ahead-of-the-curve cultic flirtations and investigations. Its leader was Genesis P-Orridge, co-founder of Psychick TV and Throbbing Gristle, the band that created the industrial music genre.

The limited signed cloth edition of Thee Psychick Bible quickly sold out, creating demand for any edition of this 544-page book, which will be available in a handsome smyth-sewn paperback edition with flaps and ribbon. According to author Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, “this is the most profound new manual on practical magick, taking it from its Crowleyan empowerment of the Individual to a next level of realization to evolve our species.”


Ultraculture Journal One

A massive anthology of more mind-dementing manuals, arcane travelogues and Tantric transmissions than you can shake a shaman at. Contains new or long-lost material from the Beat poet Ira Cohen; William S. Burroughs’ legendary collaborator Brion Gysin; cultural engineer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge; and the late Jhonn Balance of the band COIL.


Generation Hex

Did it observe a new youth culture, or did it create one? And what’s the difference, really? Generation Hex is the assembled transmissions of the shamanarchic post-Chaos underground of the early 21st century; a hole in history captured through the snapshot essays of those who lived there. Half record and half practical manual, Generation Hex is less a book than a small briefcase nuclear device loaded with pernicious ultracultural memes and ways to drive yourself so crazy that you might just snap into perfect sanity. Read what Grant Morrison called “Your invitation to the party that might just bring the house down.”
