November 27, 2014 / Black Friday Collapses
We have been down into the Urbanomic cellar and are clearing the last remaining stock of the ORIGINAL printing of the previous volumes of Collapse. This is definitively your last ever chance to get hold of these limited editions. We have only a small number of copies of Collapse I, II, III, V, VI, and VII (not IV). We ALSO have a similarly limited number of copies of the first editions of Fanged Noumena and The Concept of Non-Photography.
Best of all, for this Friday only, for our Facebook and Twitter friends, all of these titles are available for only £5 each + shipping.
*note: these copies are sold as they are, from our last remaining stock. They may be any one of the following: unnumbered; marked; bent covers; cracked spine; missing insert (Collapse VII); cursed; radioactive. They are all readable! There are only limited numbers of each title, to be sold on a first come first served basis (no reservation in advance - please don't email!, sale begins 00:00 GMT on Friday 27 Nov).

November 6, 2014 / Collapse 8
We are delighted to announce that the long-awaited Collapse Volume VIII: Casino Real will be published on 15 December, and is now available for pre-order from our web store - for a limited time with free shipping. As well as an astonishing array of texts from philosophers, gamblers, casino security consultants, and more, the volume also includes meillasouxian short fiction, contributions from artists and designers, a recipe for extreme cognitive noise, and a beautiful edition of 10 prints by artist Jean-Luc Moulène (more details here). Your advance orders are much appreciated and help to support future projects! (Not to mention the fact that this volume of Collapse is, as always, a limited edition that is sure to sell out quickly).

November 5, 2014 / #Accelerate round-up
There has been a lot of #Accelerate-related action recently - here's a brief round-up:
- Bayern Radio recently broadcast a fantastic show on accelerationism, With Techno and Terminator against Capital, complete with music picked by editor Robin Mackay, including some CCRU productions.
- Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek, authors of the Accelerationist Manifesto, are Interviewed in Libération.
- The Dark Ecologies blog continues its excellent series of readings of #Accelerate with a post on Benedict Singleton's take on Cosmism.
- CCBLAB have an Interview with Editor Robin Mackay.
- A call for papers for a Prague workshop on education and acceleration.
- Lastly, and most intriguing of all, Vice have a story on Health Goth, a fashion movement which is apparently aligned with Accelerationism.
