Frederick Noble and
Degenerate Press

I'm a typical Generation X slacker with few life goals, overeducated and undermotivated, all dreams and little ambition.

In 1993 I began publishing Degeneration Excerpt, a bimonthly newsletter with articles on topics from travel to politics to dating services to explosives, as well as photographs, poetry, and original artwork. Since I was publishing something, I decided there needed to be a publishing company so I created a bogus publisher, Degenerate Press. The name stuck and, though the Excerpt fell by the wayside back in 2000, other publishing efforts under the DP umbrella have flourished.

As the popularity of the web grew, I moved most of the publishing efforts online. In 1994 I started Electric Degeneration, a semi-weekly ezine I produce featuring articles on local music, travel, politics and other random topics. In addition to my own writing, I feature subscriber’s submissions. Despite a complete lack of advertising, readership topped 300 subscribers within a few years. The Degenerate Press web site receives over 18,000 page views per month.

My longest work, Ancient Rome, The Italian Renaissance, and Postmodern Love, is a short novel about my trip to Italy and the tragicomic love story surrounding the trip. “Part love story, part travelogue, part rock opera, all true” I call it.

For a bit of ancient family history:

Thanks for your interest in me and my work!
