The rare and collectible Process Church magazines are back in print. Do you dare find out who rules you? The Process Church of the Final Judgement inspired fear and devotion amongst London's swinging set. The Process Church magazines, published between 1967-1971, the celebrated thematic magazines of the notorious Process Church of the Final Judgment cult were created to be hawked on the street in order to raise money and attract like-minded adherents to their unorthodox Gnostic theology. Printed in order of their first appearance, the Sex, Fear, and Death issues are here reproduced in their entirety. The first edition of this collection published in 2009 now sells for over a thousand dollars. The Feral House release Love, Sex, Fear, Death: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment by Timothy Wyllie and other ex-members explored the history and aftermath of the notorious organization and the accusations lodged against it. (This sold out edition is also once again available with a new foreword and additional, rare material.) The magazines reproduced in this book are lionized as being decades ahead of their time in terms of the sophistication of its art and design. The cult was also attacked for including in its Death issue a contribution by Charles Manson. This inclusion led the dark-robed cult to be characterized as a sinister death cult. Included is the original introduction by Adam Parfrey and by the magazine's original art director, Timothy Wyllie. Parfrey contextualizes the meanings and impact of the magazines on the world at large. Full reproductions of the most notorious magazines of the most notorious cult of the 20th century, now available in a soft cover edition.
