Anthology of Mark Fisher writings set for November release

K-Punk includes published and unfinished pieces on music, pop culture, politics and mental health

Repeater Books have announced the publication date for a long-awaited collection of pieces by the writer, theorist and former Wire contributor Mark Fisher. K-Punk: The Collected And Unpublished Writings Of Mark Fisher From 2004-2016, a collection named after his longrunning blog, includes unpublished writings, blog posts as well as contributions to The Wire.

The anthology, which includes a foreword by music writer and friend Simon Reynolds and is edited by Darren Ambrose, extends beyond writings on music to TV, film, politics, mental health and popular culture. Among the unpublished pieces is a draft introduction to a planned work on what Mark termed “acid communism”. K-Punk: The Collected And Unpublished Writings Of Mark Fisher From 2004–2016 will be published by Repeater, an imprint co-founded by Fisher in 2014.

Fisher was a regular contributor to The Wire from 2007 up until January 2017, when he took his own life.
