New Novel Available! Meat Ladder to Mars

MeatLadderCoverKINDLE

It’s finally here, gente! My gentri-fi novel Meat Ladder to Mars about a young professional who leans out, as it were, has been so graciously published by those crazy cats Éxitos Gnosis. It’s available for download at Amazon Kindle and they will print the book in May sometime. Go get yerself an ebook, they’re cheap! If you love it or hate it, consider leaving a review on Amazon as well. Enjoy!

Here’s the blurb:
Zosime, once an important crewmember at the doomed sky ladder, is now under one of the world’s largest landfills, loading an antiquated space shuttle with unprotected livestock. Suddenly the world-wandering heroine is given the choice to follow her heart and heal her family or follow orders.
Using the gentri-fi genre, Eugenio Negro presents the moment before colonization of the planet Mars. Negro’s controversial story examines the economic and cultural forces at work in the Mars mission, and asks: is space exploitation the dream of all humankind?

IKEA cashes in on global calamity

Pretty happy with this one. It was too easy, really. European and North American bankers and politicians create humanitarian and cultural crises all over the world through exploitation, then bribe their own people with material comfort into thinking that this imperialist aggression is necessary to “quality of life.” And now the supplier of the quality of life garbage is getting into the crisis market!

El Sonecito

Just found out about this dude, he makes excellent corridos! Sonecito, or Sergio Campos, evokes the music style prohibited by the church and authorities in the 18th century because it, and its cousin the copla, was a folk style that criticized the powerful in its time. Check one of his songs out at El Chamuco!

Fire to the Prisons #12 is in print!

Need something to read, jolines? Fire to the Prisons, which has been documenting the frustrating work of anarchist direct action –yes kids, sometimes less than peaceful –sometimes yearly, sometimes biennially, sometimes not at all since 2007, is back in action. Print your own damn copies and distribute it!

The paper includes some good writing about Ferguson (including a link to directly aid detained Ferguson citizens), Kobani, gentrification, looting and rioting, and ecological disaster. There’s also the usual list of reported resistance actions against the state and its agents down to little things like prisoners hitting their jailers back, something you also read in Black Seed, etc.

Like what you read? Why don’t you get off your ass, measure your system and contexts, and write for them? They’d probably like the help!
