BAD MAGS VOL 2 continues to collect the colourful and sometimes
shocking news-stand publications of the 1960s through to the 1980s that
together provide a fascinating and occasionally biased, humorous and
exploitative counterpoint to news events and the burgeoning
countercutlure scene. Chapters are divided into subject categories for
easy reference, such as sexploitation, Sharon Tate and Charles Manson,
Ed Wood Jr, outlaw bikers, the occult, the mob and punk. Author Tom
Brinkmann has spoken with many of the individuals responsible for these
magazines, some of whom are referenced here for the first time. BAD MAGS
VOL 2 also provides comprehensive background details on the creators
and often maverick publishers, along with plenty of anecdotal
information, mind bending extracts and hundreds of rare photos and cover
reproductions.

And, here and there, something did. But I do wish the writer would learn to use a hyphen (and that goes for many other writers), and also that he didn't so often announce things as "strange" in a book subtitled "The Strangest, Sleaziest, and Most Unusual I read this as research for a proposed novel set in the L.A. demimonde of the late sixties and early seventies, even dragging myself through sections that have little to do with said novel in the hope that something interesting would turn up.

But I do wish the writer would learn to use a hyphen (and that goes for many other writers), and also that he didn't so often announce things as "strange" in a book subtitled "The Strangest, Sleaziest, and Most Unusual Periodicals Ever Published!" I mean, you know, I was expecting strange; you don't have to beat me over the head with it.

My edition features Sharon Tate on the cover, incidentally, which is what initially attracted me to the book, and its best sections are the ones on Tate and Manson. ...more
