The book about Destroyer Magazine is available in English and Swedish, in print and as an ebook.
The original Swedish book was subject to both praise and criticism in the culture sections of Sweden’s biggest dailies. The English translation made headlines in fashion and gay magazines alike across the globe – Gay Times (UK) and Out (USA) to mention a couple.
Quite a response for a self-published book printed in the hundreds. But then the story of Destroyer Magazine is a spectacular read. From dramatic live radio debates and police interrogations to “serious reflection on the direction of today’s LGBT movement”, as one Dutch gay mag called it. It’s all part of the Destroyer story, which is told from Prague, Berlin and Stockholm.

The Appendix is a 32-page full color booklet that contains selected content from Destroyer, including the criticized “secretly taken photos” from sold-out Destroyer 02. There is also some new material, like two full-page nudes by Will McBride and D.H. Mader.
