this afternoon a group of us gathered to invoke your spirit, to deliver unto to it proper encomium, to send it off on a chariot of howls. i believe you heard us, adam & smiled fireside with loki's head warm in your lap.
Took a day off work to wait for a package that never came 😒 Highlight of my day has been finishing this excellent collection of essays and articles on subjects from bizarro Elvis fandom to amputee sex cults to the Oklahoma bombing. The concerns (and the author) are more right wing than I'd normally find myself reading but everything is treated with an open, journalistic mind. Frankly, I don't care about anybody's politics so long as it's not pushed down my throat. I admire especially those places where, reprinting an older article, the author acknowledges mistakes in tone or offence caused at the time of first printing. I always enjoy feeling like Ive learned something - which isn't to say I believe there is NWO symbolism buried in sign-language, only that it's sharpened my wits and reminded me to always question what is presented to me as a fact.

Very sad to hear about the passing of Adam Parfrey, the publisher of Feral House. My first job in publishing, many moons ago, was with PGW, Feral House's distributor. The perk of the job was when Adam came to the office to present his latest titles. He introduced my young mind to a myriad of subcultures, dark histories, and outcasts. I had a blast selling his books to Virgin, Tower, and indie bookstores. Thank you Adam for sharing your unique world view with all of us. #feralhouse#adamparfrey#bookpublishing#indiepublishing @feral_house
R.I.P. Adam Parfrey
Adam Parfrey was an American journalist, editor, and the publisher of Feral House books, whose work in all three capacities frequently centers on unusual, extreme, or "forbidden" areas of knowledge. #adamparfrey#rip
You guys I wanted to try and share a few of my experiences of the amazing #adamparfrey and what I saw of him. Although it really doesn't do the experiences justice here are some of the adventures we shared together. So grateful to have come into his orbit. So many thanks to @julabell and @jodiwille for sharing such great times. #friendship
I've just learned of the passing of publisher, editor, writer Adam Parfrey whose work with Amok and Feral House played such an influential part in a youthful initiatory journey, inspiring my desire to seek out alternative views and subversive philosophies that served to help me better understand and contend with the complexities of my world. Parfrey consistently published stimulating, provocative, and important books for over 30 years. He will be greatly missed. From my shelf. This is my still cherished, beaten, tattered, first edition of the controversial, pioneering work Apocalypse Culture. #adamparfrey#feralhouse#amokbooks
We are shocked and saddened by the untimely death of #AdamParfrey , #FeralHouse publisher, editor and author. The influence of his seminal book #ApocalypseCulture on our own work over the years cannot be overestimated, and many a FH volume sits on our #bookshelf .

Discussed why Adam Parfrey's death is such a blow to me over on OTC, link to site in bio. I suspect none of these photos are particularly clear here but if you look closely (or go over to OTC to see the larger version), you'll see some of the titles from Adam Parfrey's various endeavors, mainly Feral House, that make up part of the library here at Casa Dalton-Clark. God speed, Adam. #adamparfrey#feralhouse#amokbooks#books#valemagister
I’m very saddened to hear about the passing of Adam Parfrey. His publications and Feral House books helped shape me into the fine upstanding citizen that I am today. From Anton LaVey’s essays to Lords of Chaos, Adam didn’t care who he pissed off and took huge risks to bring the world more insight into the things that made him tick. I was fortunate enough to have him come speak in New Orleans and hang out with him for a week. He invited me come visit his farm in Washington and I unfortunately never made it up there. My condolences to his sister who helped keep their operation afloat and to the rest of his family. #adamparfrey#feralhouse
Saddened to hear about the passing of Adam Parfrey of Feral House books. He put out some truly mind melting works that were sometimes as funny as they were transgressive. Most of the time they were dark and fascinating and he is responsible for a subculture that is only now getting to be brought into the light of the mainstream. Killers, conspiracies, extreme music and magickal thinking since 1989. What a legacy. #adamparfrey#feralhouse

Over the years I have acquired many #feralhouse publications. Many more which I've yet to own. The Apocalypse Culture books opened my eyes to the REAL underground and "outsider" art as well as the downright disturbing. #RIP#adamparfrey#booksofinstagram
Not one for RIP posts, but this loss is greater than any pop icon. RIP Adam Parfrey, your books helped shape my early years, you pushed things closer to the edge than anyone ever will.
RIP Adam Parfrey, Feral House founder, who gave us the strangest, most challenging books to be found anywhere. His books have always been a guiding light in the Quimbyverse and I will miss him. #adamparfrey#feralhouse @quimbysbookstorenyc
RIP Adam Parfrey. No one will ever be like you and no one had the penchant or mind for publishing what you did. I’ll never forget our encounter at the Cult Rapture book release party in SF in 1994. I am so sorry you are gone but will never be forgotten. #feralhouse#adamparfrey
Yesterday we lost one of the legends of counterculture publishing- #AdamParfrey of @feral_house - who's books literally helped shaped who I am today. He was a friend & although I didn't really see much of him, his presence was felt though his wonderful engaging posts on Facebook & literally all around my home, in all his books. Before the internet back in the day, #exitmagazine & #feralhouse books / #AmokBooks were the go to source for all sorts of underground & bizarre information. More recently his books on his #ProcessMedia imprint have helped usher in our culture's renewed obsession with cult(ure)s , New Religious Movements, the occult & counterculture. He left us way too soon. May his memory be everlasting. My deepest condolences go out to his family. #independentpublishers#ApocalypseCulture#independentpublishing#counterculture#occultbooks#undergroundpress ★ drawing of Adam by Coop
RIP Adam Parfrey. I was just talking about book publishing the other day, about being able to help create books on whatever subject had my interest at the time. Adam and Feral House immediately came to mind.
Lord, House of Feral. Greatest publisher ever. Ever. Gone far too soon. In a shrinking world of narrowing, strangled minds, Adam’s field of view and curiosity were vast. After recovering from the shock, must buy more FH books! Viva #AdamParfrey ! Viva #FeralHouse !
