Last Act of the Circus Animals, which Sean Swain co-wrote with a fellow prisoner, Travis Washington, is now in print, published by Little Black Cart in Berkeley. Last Act was one of the most re-copied and re-distributed zines in the last decade since its first printing in zine format. This first edition in book form includes materials from Anonymous’ founding member and Last Act reader Jeremy Hammond and others, as well as commentary by Swain that was not included in the zine.
Swain has irresponsibly convinced Little Black Cart to print up ten thousand copies of the book, which means he now has to convince ten thousand people to purchase the book or else Swain will make one of the most reputable anarchist publishers in the world go broke and cause the folks working there to sleep under bridges. So, in order to promote the sale of Last Act and save LBC from bankruptcy, he has suggested that rebels everywhere listen to the archived recordings of his Final Straw segments where Swain described how to counterfeit money and how to rob banks.
“If everyone out there just counterfeits a few million dollars or robs just two or three banks, they can spend a few bucks on a book,” he said. “I’m not too good at this crapitalist thing, and clearly the publisher who listened to me isn’t very skilled at it either. So, we need counterfeiters and bank robbers to bail us out so LBC can continue pumping out entertaining and informational stuff.”
Anyone wishing to reserve a copy of Last Act of the Circus Animals first one thousand copies should email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to do that.
