November 27, 2014 /  Black Friday Collapses

To celebrate Collapse 8 finally going to press, we are offering copies of the ORIGINAL series of Collapse at an insane Black Friday price in our web store, from 00:00 GMT tomorrow.

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 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.

- There is a forthcoming event, The Accelerationist Trial at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in December, scheduled to coincide with a forthcoming issue of Multitudes.

- Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek, authors of the Accelerationist Manifesto, are Interviewed in Libération.

- Over at 3AM magazine Alex Galloway discusses Accelerationism with Benjamin Noys, whose new book Malign Velocities expands and elaborates his critical take on the idea.

- 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.
