K-punk: The Collected and Unpublished Writings of Mark Fisher

Done

i really like this one amazon review from KingLudd: "The modernist desire for innovation was in the air we breathed when we were young men. It was what art was supposed to do - it was supposed to reinvent the world, make you see it with fresh eyes. It was the encounter with the genuinely strange, the unfamiliar, that we sought. Everything in my life has been directed towards those sorts of encounters, in my personal life as much as in the literature and art and music I was drawn to. You can see it in Mark Fisher's writing, not just in the arguments he's making, or in the descriptions of the ongoing cultural stasis, or in the music, post punk, jungle, that he loves. You can see it in the writing, which always strives, even at the level of the individual sentence, to lead you somewhere unexpected, somewhere that isn't facile or commonplace, somewhere genuinely new. He was the great writer of my generation, I think. And also someone with whom I had a great deal in common - so much in fact that often I can't remember whether the things I'm writing or thinking are things I read in k-punk or whether they predate that point. Some kind of Neuromancer Wintermute fusing of consciousness. He had a way of articulating the things I was only vaguely aphasically thinking, that were hovering around the edges of consciousness, half formed. There's a generosity in these pieces and a total sincerity and integrity, as well as the bravery to make yourself vulnerable, to put your head above the parapet, to risk middlebrow mockery. I love all of that. I think you will too."

Spectres of Marker and the Reality of the Third Way

i loved the way this segued into personal (political) anecdotes. the piece itself blends cultural criticism and politics in a way that echoes his understanding of their linkage!

Fear and Misery in Neoliberal Britain

this is cool - it's a second person short story, meant to dramatise the experience of precarity in the contemporary era. inspiration for my fiction?
