Format: Taschenbuch
The latest Amok catalog is simply amazing. Over 500 pages (definitely the size of a metropolitan phone book) and printed as a quality paperback (a definite improvement over the newsprint-ish Fourth Dispatch), the Amok catalog features reviews and listings for literature (and sometimes videos and CD-roms) way outside the mainstream. The Amok Fifth Dispatch is truly a "sourcebook of the extremes of information in print."
However, despite the quality (and quantity) of the work which went into this thing, I can't help but feel a little less frightened of this edition as I did the previous one. Maybe it's because in the past 9 years, with the advent of such cultural phenomena as the internet, Jerry Springer, Marilyn Manson, and serial-killer/mass-murder fetish, the "extremes" don't seem so extreme anymore.
Nonetheless, this Amok Fifth Dispatch is an amazing resource and is well-worth picking up.
A word of caution: DO NOT THROW OUT THE PREVIOUS FOURTH DISPATCH IF YOU STILL HAVE IT!!! While there is some overlap between the previous Amok catalog and this one, the Fifth Dispatch is almost an entirely new book. I feel this is probably due to many of the publications listed in the Fourth Dispatch no longer being available (given the ephemeral nature of much of the material featured). Anyhow, keep both on your shelf.

mind boggling 29. März 2006
Von W. McMillin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I had the third dispatch that arrived in my mail box and I have been hooked on the Amok Dispatches since then. This is the best place to find out about the astounding collection of books that you did not existed. Not a catalog that you want in young hands but a play ground for adults. Bizzare books on almost any topic that you can think of. Great fun.... surprising how many of the books listed that I must own ... someday.

Wonderful sourcebook 15. Mai 2002
Von Greg Goodsell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
What I find most refreshing about the Amok Catalog is that they place no moral judgement on the books they feature. Right-wing and left-wing diatribes find space along David Cassidy autobiographies and Lypsinka coloring books. This catalog features many fascinating and knowledgeable essays. Since their mail-order system is no longer, it's suggested that the reader use this book as a source for extremes in art, knowledge and arcana.

truly bizarre 31. Januar 2003
Von Brian Wallace (Co-author of It's Not Your Hair) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Wow, these guys put together some amazing collections.
If you are looking for the truly bizarre, look no further than Amok. They consistently compile some of the strangest, most intriguing articles and essays on the planet.
Freedom of expression is always pushed to the outer limits with these works. Long live freedom.

Flabbergasting! Shocking! Tawdry! Informative! 24. Juli 2001
Von Chris Ward - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I had long since given up on hoping for a fifth dispatch-- I'd worn out the first four (and ordered dozens of books from them) in the 80s and 90s. Then-- bliss!-- this arrived. A volume of hundreds of pages of out-of-the-ordinary (some of it extremely so) literature and info is something you'll like. Obsessively readable and packed with minutiae, it's something to keep by the bedside for weeks of close reading (though don't let the kiddies too close). It's a little like an internet on paper, wandering off in all directions, most of them fascinating. Buy and read-- worth the money.
