Nonexistence Kenji Siratori BlazeVOX [books]

 "All the information in the universe, plus several bits from other dimensions that I'm still trying to sort out, have just been mainlined into my nervous system. The shards from a googleplex of infobits seem to be stuck in the part of my brain just above the pineal gland. Yes, I've just been reading Kenji Siratori again. This is my idea of a good time." 

“What Kenji Siratori achieves with his polywaves of interlocking paraphrasing, is the opportunity to rase to the ground antiquated rhetoric, and give world literature the prefect blank foundation in which to bring about a whole new phraseology.”

— GX Jupitter-Larsen

"Kenji Siratori breaks new ground that others only dream.”
Alan Sondheim

“I am disillusioned at the paradise apparatus of the human body pill and with this disillusion we’re plunged into Kenji Siratori’s latest literary cataclysm. To call this “the new book”, or compare it with other books is to do it a massive disservice and to cripple other books. This is a book in the way Burroughs’ “Naked Lunch” was a book, or Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” was a piece of music. “non-existence” is a revolutionary plunge through intense linguistic mutation that rapes the surrealism of Jarry and decadence of Huysmans along the way, then fuses the corpses with the conceptual meta-fear of Ballard’s “Atrocity Exhibition” and the utter gene-blurred futuro-rants of Steve Aylett. It challenges you to leave all you understand and trust at the pod-door and be collapsed then expanded by Siratori’s hyper-speed vision. This isn’t your father’s “sci-fi”. This is cut-up Gyson that takes the edict of “destroy all rational thought” over the edge into a realm of brutality and experimentation previously unknown. This is the “new” that you never knew was there, and, like all things so totally new, it forces us to rethink our idea of “novel”, “life” and, in the end, even “Art”. Welcome to “non-existence”.

— Jared Louche of CHEMLAB

"Kenji is a madman, for sure, but if you scan his hallucinatory textual mashups in just the right frame of mind, they begin to make sense. And that's the scary part."

—Douglas Rushkoff
