You want the latest in Orgone energy, improvised home protection or more about who could have shot Kennedy other than Oswald... well, look no further. The drawback is the fact that so much of this material is the product of rather childlike thinkers.
Which has it's drawbacks.
I've never ordered from them, but I've been a fan for about 2 decades.
Amok Books and Press is a California bookstore/publisher specializing in titles on almost everything from the extremes and at the fringes of conventional society. Back in the 1980s-90s, no self-respecting conspiracy theorist, exoticist, fetishist, or political extremist (or those who swore their allegiance to a whole host of other "isms," for that matter) would be without this catalog on their shelves.
Grouped by chapters entitled Control, Exotica, Mayhem, Natas, Neuropolitics, Orgone, R&D, Parallax, Pulps and so on, the Amok Dispatch highlighted a plethora of books and topics one could only find here and there, if at all. Everything from fin-de-siecle literary decadence to cyberpunk, Wilhelm Reich and Tesla, volumes on Freemasonry, Satanism, and all things occult, pornography and alternative sexuality, titles about/for/by fascists, nazis and all sorts of anarcho-whatevers, etc. (Get the picture?) Included at the back of the Dispatch were indices for both titles and publishers (mail-order addresses included). These indices alone made the Amok Dispatch worth having.
I still have my Amok Fourth Dispatch; it's a handy guide, even in this day and age.
