The Hardcore Zen You Didn't Read: Hardcore Zen Strikes Again!
In 2003 Brad Warner published his first book Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies and the Truth About Reality. This is not that book! Hardcore Zen was a groundbreaking look at Zen Buddhism through the eyes of a Western punk rocker living in Japan who became an ordained monk while working for a company that made cheap monster movies. In this new sequel, Hardcore Zen Strikes Again, Brad returns to his roots and provides a glimpse into some of his early writings that formed the basis for that book.
These essays, mostly from a long-defunct website Brad produced in the early 2000s, form a snapshot of the genesis of Brad's first book. Brad has provided new introductions and afterwords to each essay as well as a complete chapter written for Hardcore Zen that did not make the final cut, plus an article about his experiences at the company he was working for when the book was written. Together they make an invaluable collection for anyone interested in Brad's writing as well as those interested in his unique way of presenting the timeless truths of Zen in a contemporary idiom.
You can purchase Hardcore Zen Strikes Again! directly from Amazon.
