The white cover as seen above is the one that is available. For some reason when you order the green remains the image shown. We will likely choose the color of the next batch based upon any reader responses to this newer edition. ed. RH
Okay, everyone likes the green cover better. We are reducing the price of the white to 15€ as of now. The green will be available on the third anniversary of the publication of the novel, around May 17. The price will then be 20€ as is the norm for our larger books.
First response from a reader/reviewer of note:
“Written and illustrated during the final months of the Trump presidency, America and the Cult of the Cactus Boots: A Diagnostic transmogrifies that bizarre period into a dystopian fantasy about what might have happened had Trump and his totalitarian troglodytes triumphed. Metafictionally calling itself an “unreal, esoteric, exotic, metaphysical adventure,” the novel features three talented rebels—the author, the illustrator, and the publisher—who defend independent, nonconformist thinking against an Orwellian war against the written word by way of superfetatious prose, sci-fi/occult tropes, Pynchonesque/Wallacian erudition, psychedelic excursions, and postmodern pyrotechnics. Going to absurdist lengths to dramatize the liberating effects of creative thought, the novel also demonstrates the power of the right book arriving at the right time to change one’s life. Recommended if you like Burroughs’s Sixties novels, Brossard’s freak-show epics, Robert Anton Wilson’s trilogies, and/or Mark Leyner’s fiction.”
