Apocalypse Culture II


Apocalypse Culture II

"Apocalypse Culture II" is a book edited by Adam Parfrey and published by Feral House in 2000 (ISBN 0-922915-57-1). A sequel to his previous work, "Apocalypse Culture", it continues the probing of societal taboos, with special attention given to child pornography, cannibalism, terrorism, assorted paraphilia, scatological research, abnormal racisms, misanthropic ecology, and mind control.

Parfrey clarifies, in the preface, that the collection is not a "manifesto or a smorgasbord of personal fetishes or beliefs." "The book was compiled to examine far-reaching and extreme societal tendrils."

It is dedicated to "the memory of Vladimir Jabotinsky 1880-1940." It opens with quotations from Wilhelm Stekel's "Sadism and Masochism" and Woodrow Parfrey's (the editor's father, [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0661416/ imdb entry] ) death scene as a mass murderer in the "Naked City" episode, "Burst of Passion".

Unable to find a printer willing to risk prosecution (under the Child Pornography Prevention Act), the book was published with certain illustrations censored. The obscene parts of artwork by Blalla Hallman, Stu Mead, and Beth Love were blacked out, albeit in an incomplete manner. Feral House made the objectionable paintings available for viewing on [http://www.feralhouse.com/apocalypseculture2.html their website] .
