Fiction. Through its profile of Mercury de Sade, a computer programmer obsessed with the erotic potential of alien life, EXTRATERRESTRIAL SEX FETISH introduces a new perversion into the lexicon of sexual pathologies: exophilia, an abnormal attraction for aliens. "What Kubrick did to the science fiction film, EXTRATERRESTRIAL does to the science fiction novel...a kind of 2001: A Space Sodomy"--Dr. H. Floyd. "If the Marquis de Sade invented an astonishing new branch of mathematics, in which series and sets of bodies were subject to formal operations of pain and degradation, EXTRATERRESTRIAL is the first to apply this new math to cosmology.a kind of 120 Days of Saturn"--P. de Curval. Supervert 32C is a media company that utilizes the techniques of vanguard aesthetics to research the pathology of novel perversions.

I would like to say that I expect ETSF to cause much consternation -- not because it is intrinsically polemical, like an abortion debate, but because it defies genres in a way rarely done before. (Sade and Kierkegaard wrote similarly recombinant works, but who else?) Many will reject ETSF as pornography. Pornographers will reject it as philosophy. Philosophers will reject it as literature. Litterateurs will reject it as science fiction. Sci-fi readers might accept it, because they tend to be more flexible about these things -- and yet, in spite of my enormous respect for science fiction, I don’t think ETSF is that either. "Science" means knowledge, and knowledge by definition is true; "fiction" means counterfeit, and counterfeit is by definition false. The term "science fiction" is thus an oxymoron meaning something like "truth falsified." This is probably an accurate description of certain classic works of the genre: Philip K. Dick really had a way of screwing with reality, and is "screwing with reality" anything other than falsifying truth? Conversely, I think ETSF falls in a weird bastard category more like "pseudo-science non-fiction," by which I mean falsity -- the belief in UFOs, Martians, grays, Little Green Men -- exhibited and analyzed.About the Author:
Creator of books, web sites, and CD-ROMs, Supervert is what an author can be when amplified by technology. A sort of deviant Bauhaus, Supervert utilizes the techniques of vanguard aesthetics to research the pathology of novel perversions. Its first book, Extraterrestrial Sex Fetish, was widely acclaimed in the alternative press. Lydia Lunch's Sex and Guts Magazine hailed it as "one of the most astonishing books to come out in years," and the Absinthe Literary Review esteemed it "nothing short of brilliant." Wired called Supervert's multimedia work a "torture garden of earthly delights," while the Village Voice spoke of it as a "home-brew monstrosity" promoting "an emerging philosophy: user hostility." Supervert is also the creator of PervScan, a heavily trafficked blog devoted to perversion, as well as web sites dedicated to William S. Burroughs and to Charles Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil.
