Hailed by novelists, philosophers,MoreEssays, articles, artworks, and documents taken from and inspired by the symposium on Reza Negarestanis Cyclonopedia: Complicity with Anonymous Materials, which took place on 11 March 2011 at The New School. Hailed by novelists, philosophers, artists, cinematographers, and designers, Cyclonopedia is a key work in the emerging domains of speculative realism and theory-fiction.

The text has attracted a wide-ranging and interdisciplinary audience, provoking vital debate around the relationship between philosophy, geopolitics, geophysics, and art. At once a work of speculative theology, a political samizdat, and a philosophic grimoire, Cyclonopedia is a Deleuzo-Lovecraftian middle-eastern Odyssey populated by archeologists, jihadis, oil smugglers, Delta Force officers, heresiarchs, and the corpses of ancient gods.

Playing out the books own theory of creativity - a confusion in which no straight line can be traced or drawn between creator and created - original inauthenticity (191) - this multidimensional collection both faithfully interprets the text and realizes it as a loving, perforated host of fresh heresies.

The volume includes an incisive contribution from the author explicating a key figure of the novel: the cyclone.
