Subject: incorporeal

I have completed a manuscript, and am seeking to find a publisher.  The 
proposed title of the work is "Incorporeal", and consists basically of two 
parts, a theoretical part developing Deleuze and Guattari's theories and a 
part which applies these theories (in a more or less way) in a fictional 
context.  The four theoretical pieces ("The Prisoners Cannot See the Walls", 
"Fervent Machines", "Rhizomatic Ontologies" and "A Thousand Tiny Sexes") are 
interweaved between the fictional pieces.  The complete length of the work 
is approximately 35000 words, the theoretical comprising approximately 20500 
and the fictional approximately 14500 words.  None of the work has been 
published elsewhere and all of the work is my own.  This manuscript has been 
shortlisted by another publisher, but at present it appears unlikely that 
they will have sufficient funds to publish it.

Throughout the writing process it has been the intention to approach the 
difficult task of offering to the reader, a not too complicated introduction 
to Deleuze and Guattari's concepts such as; Bodies without Organs, rhizomes, 
deterritorialization, multiplicity, becomings, a thousand tiny sexes and so 
forth.  The work includes a Deleuzoguattarian analysis of the German 
industrial band, Einstrzende Neubauten, and an application and development 
of Deleuze and Guattari's theories in the framework of developing 
contributions to post-structuralist feminism.  The section on feminism 
points in core, to women writers such as Kathy Acker, Patti Smith and Anna 
Kavan as exemplifying what Deleuze and Guattari term "becoming woman".  Also 
included is an appendix which includes a listing of feature length films and 
selected musicians of special interest.  The fictional component is less 
describable, but it sits alongside other writers such as Gira, Kathy Acker, 
Burroughs, Ballard, Artaud and so forth.

In the instance that you may be interested in publishing this work please 
reply to me in Australia at lord-AT-qnt1.santos.com.au, and I will gladly 
forward to you a copy of the complete text (preferably on disk). Genuine 
enquires only.

>This has really got me thinking, and it seems that in one sense this is
precisely the point of schizoanalysis (and marxist political economy):  lack
is not natural -- it's a fiction, a production, just as much as consumption.
Deleuze and Guattari call this "a pure fiction, a cosmic swindle" (A-O, 230).

Isn't this also the point of Ivan Illich..... While in the process of translating a brief draft on what our approach
has been to perhaps clarify more our query, am sorry to say that here we
have not had a chance to hear of Ivan Illich, would you forward any
material you may have available?

I am passing between 1998 & 1997 and stumbled these two important discussions. It would please me had we the time to review them before publixction.

  Thanks to let me know
