What is Degenerative Prose?
Degenerative Prose is 150 pages of outlaw writing with a terrorist heart.
Packaged as a special 10th anniversary double-issue of Black Ice magazine,
the missives published here represent an explosive mix of avant-pop
fiction, e-mail viruses, anti-aesthetic manifestos, dissident comix,
aberrant essays, eloquent rants, mock interviews and phony contributor
notes. An interventionist attack on the banality of mainstream culture,
Degenerative Prose tears down the reign of genre and dares the reader to
use these previously unpublished narrative strategies to deconstruct all
the digital hype permeating the sonic landscape. A witch's brew of
cult-writing stirs within these pages, and includes characters with names
like R.U. Sirius, Mark Amerika, Derek Pell, Eurudice, Ron Sukenick, Ricardo
Cortez Cruz, Bob's Media Ecology, Terry Southern, Rikki Ducornet, and Steve
