The Torrent is "Here"

Based on a damaged BitTorrent file of Jean Rollin's The Night of the Hunted (1980), The Torrent translates cross-cultural file error into a new narrative configuration. The action moves between a foreboding beach villa in which a poet attempts an epic rewrite of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," and a sinister hospital where the Torrent reigns over scantily clad incapacitated women.

Limited copies of my new book The Torrent will be available starting
today at the NY Art Book Fair, free103point9 table.

And will be available later this month at the &Now Book Fair.

Ignore unauthorized versions by John Roland, Roxanne Carter, L.J. Housley, Giardia Fuemte Jones, Danny Snelson and A.O.. In order to distinguish from these pirated digital versions, The Torrent will only be available through limited real-space transactions.


  1. wher can I get an authorized copy?

  2. Hi, this is Whinny from publicity. Because of certain legal issues arising from the various pirated versions of the Torrent, we're only making this edition available at the above locations until we can sort things out. If you are in NYC or Buffalo, it will be easy enough. In Hudson, you may have to contact our Barns & Nobel Bookes agent to have a copy handed off to you (they are $15 each). But I emphasize the word "hand" here. At Bladdermouse & Associates, we are leaders in using the "new media" to sell our properties, however, the proliferation of unauthorized versions has left us no other choice than to withhold the Torrent from all digital distribution platforms until we can devise a way to monetize the property. I'm sorry for any convenience this has caused you, but I'm sure that it will be worth the wait. As the old saying goes, "a few bad eggs . . ."
