“The best book catalog in the world.” I’m not arguing. The catalog, itself a 300-page book, contains essays, comics and exhaustive descriptions of hard to find books for sale.
Loompanics’ pages are filled with books you probably won’t see at major book stores. In fact, the Loompanics’ folks seek out books that would send most bookbuyers running for the hills.
For instance: Be Your Own Undertaker: How to Dispose of a Dead Body, by A.R. Bowman. A very practical manual in some circles. Perhaps more useful is a People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn, an important book of history from the perspective of the radical rather than the ruling class. You can order Church of the Subgenius and Re/Search books as well. Other topics include: Building your own home, comics, sex, paralegal skills, drug manufacturing, money, anarchism (surprise!), survival, and much more.
