My Profane Youth 1913-1935
By James Shelby Downard
“The most absurd, the most incredible, the most ridiculous Illuminati theory of them all.”
— Robert Anton Wilson, author of The Illuminatus! Trilogy
James Shelby Downard is without doubt one of the most controversial conspiracy theorists of the 20th century -- In his essay “ King-Kill 33° ” Downard has notoriously laid out the involvement of Freemasonry in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy -- 'The Carnivals of Life and Death' is Downard’s autobiographical account of his early years in the deep South, when Ku Klux Klansmen and Freemasons, pulled him into many strange and violent affairs.
Downard does furious battle with both factions and many others. 'Hoodwinked' and set up time and time again, he narrowly escapes numerous attempts on his life. All the while the continuous message of importance seems to be 'nothing is as it seems'.
Adam Parfrey, who introduced Downard to readers in his Apocalypse Culture book compilations, provides the Foreword, based on his personal experiences with the reclusive and now-deceased conspiracy theorist. A real roller-coaster ride of a read !

"Because the dead and deadening scenery of the American city of dreadful night is so utterly devoid of mystery, so thoroughly flat-footed, sterile and infantile, so burdened with the illusory gloss of 'baseball-hot dogs-apple pie and Chevrolet' that it is somehow outside the psycho-sexual domain. The eternal pagan psychodrama is escalated under these 'modern' conditions precisely because sorcery is not what twentieth century man can accept as real." --- James Shelby Downard from his essay: " King Kill 33* "

UNOFFICIAL RELEASE: Self Released and Handmade Audio in Post-Industrial Society
By Thomas Bey William Bailey
Featuring Material on: Mail Art, Cassette Culture, Industrial Music, Handmade Packaging, Releasing Addiction, Extremist Metal, Digital File Sharing, Outsider Art, etc..
From the web-site:
The culture of self-released music and sound art is one of the most vital, yet most overlooked, phenomena resulting from the 20th century revolution in communications technology. In this volume, Thomas Bailey surveys a fascinating realm of creative activity and identifies the key individuals and developments responsible for its continued relevance in the present age.
From the networked “mail art” of the 1970s, to the home-taping boom, to the establishment of music labels dealing solely in digital sound files, this culture provides valuable insight into the evolution of the “official” art market and the artists who bypass it.
Along the way, we are introduced to a world where networks are artworks in themselves, where blank tapes and recordable CDs are fashioned into elaborate art objects, and where relative freedom from creative supervision leads to both colorful innovations and violent aesthetic extremes.
Exclusive long-form interviews are also included with artists such as: Frans de Waard, Vittore Baroni, Rod Summers, GX Jupitter-Larsen and others, along with new insights from theorists and artists as varied as 'Gen' Ken Montgomery, The Tapeworm, Alexei Monroe, Oren Ambarchi, and David Tibet. Also includes front and back cover photography courtesy of Scott Konzelmann / Chop Shop.

GENES, GIANTS, MONSTERS and MEN: The Surviving Elites of the Cosmic War and Their Hidden Agenda
By Joseph P. Farrell
Consider the possibility that the history of the human race is not quite as simple as has been taught in classroom textbooks. Consider the possibility that the standard scientific explanation for mankind has ignored certain facts that are buried deep within the fossils and mankind's DNA. Consider the possibility that the biblical tales may actually reveal an essential truth about a planet occupied with tyrannical giants and an elite race bent on genetic mutation. This book sets forth a plausible theory revealing a hidden history of mankind and a possible reason why it has remained veiled for thousands of years - with his well documented style and breath taking conclusions, Doctor Farrell pulls back the veil and takes the reader on an odyssey behind the mysterious history and myths of the human race.
The author Joseph P. Farrell is a recognized scholar whose credentials include a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Oxford - he has written on a wide variety of topics and is able to condense the best research and make insightful new conclusions on complex and controversial subjects.

THE HERMETIC TRADITION: Symbols and Teachings of the Royal Art - By Julius Evola
This important survey of alchemical symbols and doctrines sets forth the mysterious worldview and teachings of the practitioners of the "royal art." One of the leading exponents of the Hermetic tradition, Julius Evola demonstrates the singularity of subject matter that lies behind the words of all adepts through-out the ages - showing how alchemy is nothing less than a universal secret science of human and natural transformation. First published in 1931 in Italian, this is the first English translation. Draws from a host of sources in the Western Esoteric tradition - works on Theurgy, Magic, Gnosticism and many other medieval sources.
About the Author: Baron Julius Evola (1898 - 1974), born into an aristocratic Sicilian family, was a scholar, philosopher, writer, social thinker, a leader among 20th century Hermeticists, and a leading authority on Tantra and Occultism. He is the author of 'Eros and the Mysteries of Love', 'The Doctrine of Awakening', 'Meditations on the Peaks', 'The Mystery of the Grail', 'Revolt Against the Modern World', 'Introduction to Magic', 'Ride the Tiger' etc...
