Omnibus 2 By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $24.94

A volume containing 3 previously published works by Jonathan Bowden, including Apocalypse TV, Lilith Before Eve and Goodbye, Homunculus! Jonathan was born in Kent in 1962. He was the author of over... More > thirty books - such as Our Name Is Legion, A Bullet Through Bone, Spiders Are Not Insects, Apocalypse TV and Kratos. A painter of distinction, Jonathan has produced over 200 full-size oil paintings.

A Ballet of Wasps By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $14.53
Prints in 3-5 business days
This volume consists of four short stories and a play. The first, A Ballet of Wasps, deals with a woodsman who offends a vampire with tales of derring-do. Our second story, Golgotha’s... More > Centurion, focuses on the chiaroscuro and ochre tints in Giotto and Cimabue. It also makes use of the same template as Mel Gibson in his Passion of the Christ, but this time to illustrate Lex talionis. The third piece, Wilderness’ Ape, delves into the world of zombies or the living dead. Sixty Foot Dolls – our fourth javelin – considers the vexed topics of ‘ageism’, eugenesis, regression theory and evolution. The last romance, Stinging Beetles, is a theatrical exercise in daemonic possession which brings together flash backs, dream sequences and other filmic techniques. Its finale again enforces the point of the whole book – namely, that heroic values and aristocratic mores need to take over once again.< Less
The Fanatical Pursuit of Purity By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $14.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Fanatical Pursuit of Purity is a Gesamtkunstwerk or attempt at a total art-work in the Wagnerian tradition. It prefigures a puppet-stage or toy-theatre within which the lead character or... More > marionette, Phosphorous Cool, has his circumference. Into this world other dolls - Mastodon Helix, Heathcote Dervish and Warlock Splendour Thomas - nimbly trip and spin. All of this finds itself punctuated by a third dimension or alternative space. It proves to be the unconscious or dream-space inhabited by these exercises in a macabre pantomime. This rival or extending narrative brings back our wooden figurines as part of an alternative Victoriana. It deals with Stephen Knight’s analysis of Jack the Ripper and a variant on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein - even James Whale’s film starring Boris Karloff. Mr Bowden believes in the creation of a separate world as art’s real purpose. It goes without saying that the result is ‘politically incorrect!’.< Less
Al-Qa'eda Moth By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $14.56
Prints in 3-5 business days
Al-Qa'eda Moth is a western which finds itself divided into a three-pronged attack upon the senses. The first section deals with a nineteenth century narrative that typifies the films of John Wayne.... More > The second strand involves a twentieth century version of the same story line. The third progression on our chess board, however, intellectualises this process and provides a template for dreaming. Using William Gayley Simpson's Which Way Western Man? as a briefing or sounding board --- Harlequin Thoomey, Toblerone Harpie, Old Man Smithers, Blackbird Leys Dingo et al speculate on western culture and its future. Can such a debate contribute to what Maurice Bardeche called the defence of the Occident? Our interweaving stories then combine in order to hint at a new Titan's creation.< Less
Kratos By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $14.54
Prints in 3-5 business days
KRATOS deals with the subject of psychopathia and is the author’s treatment of this theme. It involves dream sequences, monologue, phantasy and the elaboration of a wolfish purpose. Could it... More > turn out to be a rendering of Lombroso’s theories about crime? It is accompanied by three additional stories. ORIGAMI BLUEBEARD, which concerns love across the generations which freezes into gelignite. GRIMALDI’S LEO has to be an altogether lighter work which evaluates the doctrine of ‘animal liberation’ from the perspective of a travelling circus. NAPALM BLONDE, the final tale in our quartet, must be considered as an attempted return to Greek tragedy.< Less
Louisiana Half-Face By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $14.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is an exercise in Gnosticism or a black magic story. It effectively recalls, by the by, those occult fictions of Dennis Wheatley such as They Used Dark Forces, To the Devil – a... More > Daughter!, The Haunting of Toby Jugg or The Ka of Gifford Hillary. The work certainly features a retinue of characters drawn from the Horror genre. These were a Scarecrow (Beady Eyed Tremblake), a Vamp or lemur (Strawberry Wobbler), a Mummy (Boo Wilson), a Skeleton-man (Dramabu/Chap Rusk), a Split-face or two head (Human Toast and Dog-Eared Spittoon), a pair of Siamese Twins (Goober Peas), two Witches or hags (Queen Rat and Bob-cat Jenkin); as well as numerous Zombies, runts, mountebanks, clowns, alternative circus performers and riff-raff.< Less
Lilith Before Eve By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $16.41
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book contains four plays for either the theatre, radio, television or film adaptation. These works are a direct rejoinder to Brechtian or marxist playwrights like Jim Allen, Howard Brenton,... More > Edward Bond, David Edgar, Trevor Griffiths and Arnold Wesker. The first drama, Lilith Before Eve, examines Punch & Judy in a new way or in accordance with a violent dynamic. It proves capable of an Evolian explication, but actually ends with a chthonian or matriarchal bent (a la Charles Maurras) in his defence of Antigone. Our second work, Glock’s Abattoir, shows the necessity for courage and puts a limit on ‘crying wolf’ too often.< Less

Apocalypse TV By Jonathan Bowden
Paperback: $16.60
Prints in 3-5 business days
This work is a contribution to meta-politics or the theoretical elaboration of political positions. It involves a Platonic dialogue between two voices - one Christian and the other Pagan - over a... More > range of contemporary issues. Modelled on Plato's Republic, it attempts to achieve a resolution or dialectical power-play between Thrasymachus and Socrates' more effete companions. Our two collaborators or Dramatis Personae (Frederick and Thomas) are illiberal and 'politically incorrect' in tone. This was irrespective of whether they were debating 'political correctness', the madness or delusions of crowds (a la Gustav le Bon), the ethics of conspiracy or revisionism, or the origins of Turner Prize art in Duchamp and Dadaism. Thomas, of course, happens to be a short-hand for St. Thomas Aquinas; whereas Frederick hints at an implicit rivalry with the German thinker Friedrich Nietzsche.
