[of sirens / body & faultlines] second edition / readings: Small Publishers Fair, Brighton with M. NourbeSe Philip
The second, hi-fi edition of '[of sirens / body & faultlines]' is due imminently from Veer Books ! Veer are doing a pirate, limited edition of the zine/pamphlet, which will have all of the grainy detail that was missed from the sociopathetic distro edition (due to practically-obsolete reproduction methods).
the book will be available at the Small Publishers Fair, from myself, and via http://www.veerbooks.com/
as I said about the first edition - the pamphlet corresponds with 'radio / threat'. it was mostly written between summer 2014 and spring 2015 (with a few exceptions). trying to excavate and map sensations, discordances, the transformations of police reality and capital / canary wharf lookouts, moments of rupture in the locale of New Cross / Deptford in South London and beyond, of collectivity and protest, of what we are now calling radical transfeminism, of the constellations of violence that pivot around a government department known as the Home Office between the future and over 200 years before it was founded, of vague histories need to be reclaimed and understood in the sense of understanding as a necessary synonym of decolonialisation.
I'll be doing a handful of readings over the next month or so, in London, Brighton, London (New Cross), London again, Cambridge, Sussex Uni and Cardiff - ie, everywhere that I've spent most of my life. Readings at the Small Publishers Fair on Saturday 7th, and at Hi Zero in Brighton on Thursday 12th - with M. NourbeSe Philip (!!!) detailed below.
