About Revenge Ink
We at Revenge Ink aim to take on the high priests of the literary and publishing establishment, those etiolated dotards entombed in their redoubts of ‘high’ culture, ‘perfect’ craft and ‘refined’ sensibility. Into their rancid bloodstream we aim to administer the vaccine of the street, invigorating and vivifying it with the stench of the gutter, the chaos of the colored, the low-born and the female. We aim, through our work, to pay homage to word-anarchists like Louis Ferdinand Céline, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Henry Miller and Hunter S. Thompson. To the heroines of the female insurrectionary spirit like Dorothy Parker, Sylvia Plath and Virginie Despentes.
We aim to produce fictional narratives that are crazed, roiling, bizarre, malformed, overwrought, surreal, Rabelaisian, scabrous, scandalous, violent and above all, subversive. We aim to purvey non-fictional works that challenge consensus thinking at the root, that incinerate cherished opinions, that disembowel established paradigms in the manner of intellectual guerillas like Michel Foucault, Frantz Fanon and Gilles Deleuze. We aim to dispense Crazy Wisdom and Chaos Magick in the manner of Zen lunatics, Indian sadhus and visionaries like William Blake and Aleister Crowley.
Revenge Ink is a certain brand of literature, a particular esthetic, a unique worldview. Revenge Ink artists create art that packs a punch and sets a new tone for this age of madness. Revenge Ink is a new kind of business, based on cooperation, respect and value for the individual. Revenge Ink is a publishing company and a label for independent-minded creations in all the arts.
