One June 11th the long-awaited Invisible Monsters Remix comes out. This is a new version of the book with new chapters, new design elements and best of all, a hardcover format! (finally). Think of it like the Criterion Collection version of the book.
Here's what the publishers, WW Norton had to say about it:
We were feeling frisky last Friday and decided to have some fun on Twitter and Facebook. It had been a while since we did any sort of photo contest. The last one, which involved fans taking pictures of themselves as characters from the books as well as acting out scenarios, was a big success and winners got audiobook apps from Blackstone Audio.
Why is there a picture of Chuck Palahniuk wearing a Santa hat on your screen? Well, that's because Christmas is coming early this year in the form of this wonderful essay on writing.
Our Chuck Palahniuk Tshirts return with a vengeance in the form of this new Choke shirt, designed by Kevin Tong (@tragicsunshine). This is our fourth collaboration with Kevin and damn... did he hit this one out of the park! This is easily my favorite Tshirt from him yet. The design features Victor Mancini descending into the abyss of his own depravity. (see a close-up of it)
Update! We now have the shirts available in a 'variant' style, using just water-based colors, to give it a softer, more vintage look and feel. See pictures of those shirts here.
The shirts are American Apparel and are available in Mens and Womens in both Gray (Asphalt) and Blue (Heather Lake Blue). This all came together last minute, so unfortantely, at the time of my writing this, the actual shirts are still being printed. But if you want to place your order now, we can assure you that we will begin shipping shirts from Dec 11th on.
Important Shipping Info: We ship our shirts USPS Priority, so U.S. domestic orders typically arrive 1-3 days from the date they are shipped. International orders allow 7-10 days.
Important Sizing Info: American Apparel was sold out of a few sizes we normally order. Therefore XXL and XXXL are not available for the Gray shirt, and XXXL is not available for the Blue. Hopefully we can get these in on the next run.
If you're familiar with how we unveil new Tshirts here at The Cult, this announcement will come as no surprise. Working with Kevin Tong over the past few years (and three previous Tshirts), we have a cross-promotion we do: Kevin Tong creates the design for our Tshirts, and then offers it as a poster from his own site.
Today, that poster goes on sale and begins shipping. But hurry! If you want to receive your poster in time for Christmas, tomorrow (December 14th) is the final shipping day.
Our documentary DVD on Chuck Palahniuk, Postcards from the Future is on sale for the month of December for $20 (marked down from $25). We have a limited quantity of these that are signed by Chuck, right on the cover. Those will sell on a first come first serve basis. Once they're gone, they're gone. If you haven't seen this documentary yet, now is the time to order this 2-disk DVD set. If you have seen it, but covet having this signed edition, follow your temptation and click the link below.
Listen to a pretty great 48 min audio interview with Chuck on my favorite radio show, Opie & Anthony. You can also listen to it on YouTube.
If you missed the livestream of Chuck's Damned reading at the Cooper Union last tuesday, have no fear. Livestream has been nice enough to archive the entire event for you all. The video embed below should show it to you, or, just go to their site and watch it there.
You can also watch the stream at our Facebook page.
Big thanks to Doubleday, Livestream and the people at The Strand for setting this up.
