“Like some undecidable fugue from an all-too-familiar world that should not be, this seductively anti-lyrical sequence of existential horror-verse will quietly pummel you back into a void blacker than that from which you sprang, in other words, restore your wingéd senses to the ( )hole beneath our feet.” — M.O.N.
“This book is dark. The words are dark. The setting is dark. The craft is dark.” — Ben Spivey, author of Black God

M.O.N. ObliviOnanisM. Volume I: Dissolving. ISBN-13: 978-0615730929. gnOme, 2012. 96 pp. $9.99.
A profanely mystical work of hyperpurple theory-porn, ObliviOnanisM is an auto-erotic intellectual fiction envisioning the phantastical unending odyssey of a young woman, Gemma, whom you will never know.
Print: CS, Amazon, Kindle.
“The Young-Girl’s ass is sufficient for her to feel an incommunicable singularity . . . Between the Young-Girl and the world there is a window. Nothing touches the Young-Girl, and the Young-Girl touches nothing.” — Tiqqun
“ObliviOnanisM is some pretty weird shit . . . Language-wise, it’s written like one of Lovecraft’s fantasy stories, all flowery and dense, winding prose. We go deep into Gemma’s darkest desires . . . The general tone and feeling of the text are equal parts Bataille and Story of O . . . frankly, it’s amazing to me that this book even exists.” – David Peak, author of Glowing in the Dark (Aqueous Books)
“So does it work? Surprisingly, yes. The ‘hyperpurple’ prose recalls the anonymous French erotica that was so ripe to pop up in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, approaching metaphysical plateaus of the phantastique . . . This body has organs but they dissolve into a gushy pool of sweat, spit, and come, but this doesn’t form an abject pile of abasement, rather it launches Gemma into the ethereal fluidity of the float.” — Impossible Mike (M. Kitchell), author of Slow Slidings (Blue Square Press), via HTMLGIANT

Interview with M.O.N.
Eva Clanculator. Atheologia Germanica. ISBN-13: 978-0615669748. gnOme books. 2012. 114 pp. $5.00.
Woe unto them that call good evil, and evil good; that put light for darkness, and darkness for light.
An inverted version of the 14th-century mystical classic. “And as soon as a man turns himself in spirit, and with his whole heart and mind enters into the mind of God which is above eternity, all that ever he hath lost is restored in a moment. And if a man were to do thus a thousand times in a day, each time a fresh and real separation would take place; and in this sweet and divine work stands the truest and fullest separation that may be in this present eternity. For he who hath attained thereto, asks nothing further, for he hath found the Kingdom of Hell and Eternal Death on earth” (Chapter VII). Turn, convert to the woe.
“Clanculator’s experiment/prank perverts the blindly worshipful mysticism of its source text and winds up creating a wholly new treatise, something all-too-disturbingly fit for our modern world.” — David Peak
