Readers of Key 64 will remember Rachel Haywire. She's been a staple in the industrial noise scene and a contributor to the Generation Hex anthology. She's currently looking for a publisher for her latest work. In her own words:

Acidexia is an upcoming book of writings by Rachel Haywire that first appeared in her Acidexia online journal between 2001 and 2004.

At the turn of the millennium, an institutionalized “mentally ill” teenage girl is kicked out of her home to live life on the streets. She embarks upon an odyssey through underground subcultures and cyberspace while endlessly crisscrossing the country by bus and hitchhiking. Reinventing herself as Acidexia, a poetic terrorist and radical deconstructionist, she unleashes a torrid maelstrom of rants, diatribes and mindfuck prose in her online journal. Acidexia inspires a devoted cult following online and offline as she intentionally blurs the lines between “virtual reality” and “real life” in her provocative communiqués to the universe.

Acidexia is an authentic, highly personal coming of age autobiography and a cultural artifact documenting the fringes of culture at the dawn of the Information Age. It's an artful literary collage of journal entries, travelogue, revolting manifestos, street poetry, sci-fi riffs, Dadaist experiments and cultural critique that rips apart and reassembles every fragment of culture the author confronts: youth counterculture, music scenes, Discordianism, anarchy, eugenics, transhumanism, insanity, and more.

Rachel Haywire's writing has appeared in the Disinformation anthology Generation Hex, on Disinfo.com and in magazines such as MungBeing and ReGen. Rachel is an emerging force in the electronic music scene, performing and recording as Experiment Haywire while running the machineKUNT record label.

Jody Franklin is the editor of MungBeing magazine and the upcoming anthology Robert Anton Wilson Illuminated.
