Long time Disinfonaut and gonzo extraordinaire Dr. Bones is publishing his first book!
“Do you want to be exploited forever, to die a beautiful soul trapped in a body-turned-machine, or will you rise in armed joy?”
Written between massive amounts of drinking and regular shootouts with trailer-park Klansman Curse Your Boss, Hex The State, Take Back The World unravels the Spectral Cage in which we–even magic-workers–find ourselves trapped. The State, Capitalism, Society, and Media all enmesh not just our actions but our very perception both of this world and the Other, and Dr. Bones will show you how to forge the keys to freedom.
But unlike the pulp pablum pushed out by mass-market magic publishers, this book won’t tell you how to get that car you saw in the commercial, or how to get a raise or find inner peace. Instead, Dr. Bones offers you rituals and theory to change the entire world, to free not just yourself but others, and issues a revolutionary call to take up magical arms against Capital and the State.

“This book will fuck the world up pretty good and well,” Dr. Bones told Disinfo by phone, “and I’m pretty sure it might end up putting me in a camp.” Gun shots could be heard in the background amid bestial grunts.
“Is everything alright?” we asked.
“What? Oh, that? Ya, ya, no problems. These people are savages, all they understand is force. But at least they’re human. Some of the things we saw last night were-“
“You were telling us about the book?”
“What I TOOK? What are you, like a cop or somethin’? Took what?”
“Oh! The book! Yes, it’s 120 pages, 6X9 inches, perfect bound, B&W with a matte cover.

“Is there anything else you want to tell Disinfonauts before we go? You sound…busy.”
“Uh, yeah. Hold on.” The sound of gunfire had dissipated, now to replaced with the clinking of glass and the sound of gulping. The phone muffled a bit, though Dr. Bones seemed unaware of this, and we were forced to endure a two-hour long tirade we could barely make out. Dr. Bones seemed to move closer to the phone towards the end of it, and what little we could understand we have transcribed here.
“-goddamn motherfuckers. You know? Christ sakes we used to fucking DREAM about things, about being those wizards and witches we read about, and instead we’re sitting behind a desk doing jack shit for ourselves and everything for everybody else. This book is about getting ourselves free, about violently pursuing our own desires, about selfish communism, about everything. I spent days in scummy bars researching the tactics used by ISIS and Hezbollah, made contact with people I’d rather not think about, and I distilled that into one hell of a handbook for insurrection. Facebook banned me the day they heard what it was about. Black Magic, Illegalism, everything’s there. Seriously, pick it up, because when the CIA either kills or imprisons me it’ll skyrocket in value. I made pacts with unholy things Joe, I really did. There’s a black mark on my right hand now, a sure sign of the Devil and I…what?…Where?….I gotta go, there’s a swamp ape sniffing around the door. Jesus, look at that thing. The hair….the smell. How’d he get past the voodoo dolls? Could be special forces, a CIA trained mongoloid straight from the pits of hell. Those teeth! Get me the .357, Boo. This one looks hungry.”
Before we could ask what a swamp ape was Dr. Bones ended the phone call.
Curse Your Boss, Hex The State, Take Back The World can be ordered by using our secure order form here, and will make a fine addition to every Disinfonaut’s library.
We wish Dr. Bones luck in his authorship and his struggles against Florida cryptids.
