About the Author

Creator of books, web sites, and CD-ROMs, Supervert is what an author can be when amplified by technology. A sort of deviant Bauhaus, Supervert utilizes the techniques of vanguard aesthetics to research the pathology of novel perversions. Its first book, Extraterrestrial Sex Fetish, was widely acclaimed in the alternative press. Lydia Lunch's Sex and Guts Magazine hailed it as "one of the most astonishing books to come out in years," and the Absinthe Literary Review esteemed it "nothing short of brilliant." Wired called Supervert's multimedia work a "torture garden of earthly delights," while the Village Voice spoke of it as a "home-brew monstrosity" promoting "an emerging philosophy: user hostility." Supervert is also the creator of PervScan, a heavily trafficked blog devoted to perversion, as well as web sites dedicated to William S. Burroughs and to Charles Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil.

I bought this book after watching "Hysterical Literature: Session One" featuring Stoya on youtube. The written work seemed interesting and I had spare time to discover for myself.

Admittedly, with it's intimate investigation into the connections between eroticism and death I don't see it sitting well with most of the public. The short stories can be confronting, but I never found the work vulgar or grotesque.

Read this with your mind turned inward and you will be surprised, and maybe a little disgusted.

That's the fun of self discovery. Sometimes it's not fun at all.

Thanks Supervert.

I was surprised by how well written this was...I can't quite explain why. I really enjoyed it. If you can get past the "taboo" subject matter (and I really hope you can) you'll find a well written, hilarious and sometimes even touching book here. Love love love.

I almost feel bad for having submitted such a badly written review. Oh well.

God...words can not describe how awesome this book is, I read the first few sample chapters and I was hooked, I had to read the rest, and Iam SO SO SO glad I got it, yes, it is about "doing the do, with the dead" but its so much more, it gives you a sickening inside look at what these people really think want, and love, I would suggest this book to any one in a heart beat!

Well written, however rather light and fluffy (despite what you might expect from the title) . Many of the stories are simply idle ruminations on the themes of sex and death. Very few of the stories actually involve necrophilia. In fact (if I remember correctly) there is only one story that involves someone having sex with a corpse. Most of the stories involve sex and death but not actually at the same time. I was a little disappointed. I was hoping for something heavy, deep, horrific. As I said already - light and fluffy.

This book seems to have generated a surprsing amount of publicity about the internet but have a look around, there are plenty of more deserving works wallowing in obscurity.

Essentially, Necrophilia Variations is a series philosophical meanderings about death, love, lust and sex. Although the text can be a little too graphic a few times, its content is worth the gory illustrations. Necrophilia Variations is a book worth reading, and I would recommend it to anyone who has ever wondered anything about death, love, lust or sex.

Loved this book so much! I'd been finding it difficult to get into reading anything for months now and this book has hopefully broken the drought. It's funny and witty and just an all 'round excellent book to read... as long as you're not squeamish or easily offended. The only thing that disappointed me with the book was that it had to end.

Format: Paperback
The little black gem came wrapped in crisp cardboard with a note/bookmark that introduces the reader to
who (or what) Supervert is and does. Dressed in a tux, it pops out in the retina of
even the most casual of observers as my reading session on a park bench quickly confirmed
The textured black paper that reminds me of the charred walls of Saint Andrew's cave (or the dried skin of a
mummy) is actually the dust cover protecting the white paper back. It is destined for a rich patina (just like a black paint Leica) with white edges and dusty textures starting to show. Similar to the subject matter this book needs to be fondled with care.
Inside my suspicions are confirmed when it is revealed that every aspect is under the creative shade of
Supervert. And he needs to be applauded for such an effort. The paper is top notch with a thick ivory color,
texture, vertical watermarks and a beautiful compact typeface, a bit small for my liking, but I guess one has
to strain a bit for the privilege of reading NV.
I don't usually dwell on the way literature is presented but this is one instance when it is as much a part of
the monograph as the stories themselves and it needs to be said that, while this book may serve a lot of
purposes, a high profit margin at the expense of artistic vision isn't one of them.

So what is it?
Well a simple answer would be: 32 stories revolving around "death|desire|deviance" but also
isolation,desperation,joy,acceptance,loss,fulfillment, the immoral and amoral with an esoteric , sometimes
philosophical approach and a healthy dose of black (and almost every other kind of..) humor
Those looking for a mindless gore-fest that might be attracted by the bold title will be partially
disappointed.
