eXiled Alert! / January 13, 2009

As per our promise, we just posted four more eXile issues from way back when. Check ’em out below or go to the eXile Classics pages for a up-to-date listing. We’ll be updating it weekly.

***

Issue #4, April 1, 1997 — The eXile starts with the telephone pranks. First victim: German embassy. Topic: rumored buy-back of Kaliningrad for a few black Mercs. Limonov calls Solzhenitsyn a sell out.


Issue #5, April 10, 1997 — The pranks continue with eXile’s Chernomyrdin Charity Fund. Limonov writes the definitive guide to Russian cults. Taibbi weighs in on Russia’s bizarre cult-ure.


Issue #6, April 24, 1997 — Taibbi investigates Moscow’s prison system, Ames writes about lame decadent posturing of Moscow’s eXpats and Limonov talks about how Russian cops tried to kill him. Oh, and there’s a prank on the Moscow Tribune and a Death Porn, to boot!


Issue #7, May 8, 1997 — Ames and Taibbi go on a search for Russia’s elusive spring season, prank a couple of Moscow whore dens and Ames recounts a recent smack-fueled orgy.

    “Ames and Taibbi go on a search for Russia’s elusive spring season, prank a couple of Moscow whore dens and Ames recounts a recent smack-fueled orgy.”

    Ames is quoted on page two of the most recent “International Socialist Review.”

    What a difference a decade makes.

    Fine. I’ll buy the book.

    No, seriously, buy the book. Ames and Taibbi are pretty unstoppable. I only don’t have the Exile book since I worked at a bookstore, had a bunch of remaindered copies I stole, and sent them all off to friends, via the U.S. postal service. The book was that meaningful to me, I actually packaged it up and sent it to friends.
