10/29 MN Reads: "Vampyroteuthis Infernalis" translated by Valentine Pakis

What could possibly be more interesting than reading a book about something called "the vampire squid from hell"?  

A book called, variously, "part scientific treatise, part spoof, part philosophical discourse, part fable,"  "a unique posthumanist philosophical understanding of phenomenology,"  and "a pioneering exploration of uncharted territory in the realm of animal cognition, philosophy and art."?

Translating it from the German - just for fun.

(The Vampire Squid From Hell did consent to an interview several years ago with the University of Minnesota Press.  You can read the interview here:)

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
