Esoterra: The Journal of Extreme Culture (new release)

Posted by Dark Whisperer on February 25, 2011

by Chad Hensley

EsoTerra was an underground magazine focusing on extreme culture published for almost a decade. The zine featured interviews with musicians, writers and artists alongside articles on fortean subjects, bizarre phenomena, and the occult.

Some of the diverse personalities who appeared in the magazine include Marilyn Manson, H.R. Giger, Alan Moore, Adam Parfrey, Genesis P-Orridge, David Tibet, Thomas Ligotti, Leilah Wendell, Stephen O’Malley, Masami Akita, Boyd Rice, and dozens of other luminaries who, in many cases, were both the subject of an in-depth interview and contributor to the magazine.

EsoTerra the book collects these and all the best interviews, along with articles and art from the magazine into a single high quality volume, including previously unseen material from the unpublished final issue.

“EsoTerra serves up a fringe gallery of malcontents, misanthropes, seekers, sorcerers, ecstatics, jesters, and visionaries, all of them living life on their own terms and taking a carnival mallet to the head of consensus normality. If you don’t find something among their ideas and endeavors to enhance your own life, then you’re probably beyond resuscitation already. Put this one on the shelf between the seminal Apocalypse Culture and the classics from Re/Search, in whose company it deservedly belongs.” — Brian Hodge, author of World Of Hurt and Mad Dogs

“Chad Hensley’s magical magazine, EsoTerra, brought together rock stars and demons and scary visionary thinkers. It pulled no punches, presenting provocative glimpses into a new and improved consciousness. EsoTerra was like the Bible of Extreme Culture!” — George Petros, author of Art That Kills

“I think the Esoterra anthology is really quite spectacular in its production. Speaking in a selfish mode, I can’t help but speculate that through this volume I may come to the notice of some readers who otherwise would never have heard of me, and for that I’m grateful. As a reader, I’m looking forward to relishing the bizarre and degenerate contents of the book.” -Thomas Ligotti
