Major anthology of Mark Fisher’s writings now in preparation

Repeater Books are working with Darren Ambrose on the book set for publication in late 2018

Repeater Books are currently compiling a major anthology of Mark Fisher writings. The book will be edited by Darren Ambrose, with a foreword by Simon Reynolds.

Ranging from some of his earliest K-Punk blog essays in 2003 through to an unpublished K-Punk post on the recent US election, this comprehensive collection will bring together a selection of his writings on politics, popular culture, music, film and television. It will also include a selection of reviews and interviews and other key pieces on activism, precarity, hauntology, mental health and popular modernism, as well as his recent thoughts on acid communism. Wire writings featured will include a review of Sleaford Mods' Divide & Exit (The Wire 362) and David Bowie’s The Next Day (The Wire 351), plus the essay “Autonomy In The UK” (The Wire 335).

Still in the early stages of production, the anthology has a pencilled in late 2018 as a publication date.
