What’s in a Name?

Our name and that of our magazine comes from the ero guro nansensu or erotic grotesque nonsense literary and artistic movement in Japan.

Many of our contributors are or create works that are, in some form or fashion, on the “fringe” — the fringe of society, of sexuality, of sensibility, of sanity — and in fact, some have even been inspired by the ero guro movement and its works.
